Impulse Point is a privately-held company addressing the challenges of managing network access policies and endpoint security within large infrastructures. SafeConnect is the most flexible NAC solution available and offers an easy to implement and support endpoint policy management system. It seamlessly connects into existing multi-vendor network infrastructures while providing the flexibility to adhere to each organization’s unique computing policy philosophies. SafeConnect’s unique architecture provides a true out-of-line NAC solution that is vendor-independent, scalable, and flexible to meet your growth needs – resulting in reduced time, expense, and risk.
Our mission is sharply focused––to provide exemplary customer service to our family of clients and to be recognized as the leader in network access control for education.
At Impulse Point, we believe that a NAC system should operate completely independent of the network infrastructure. SafeConnect is designed specifically with this in mind and is the only solution on the market that can make this claim. This allows network administrators to run their operation without having to consider switch compatibility, configurations or port settings…significantly eliminating the complexity and constant management found with other solutions.
