(Gawkwire) – NetClarity, Inc., the leading provider of Next Generation Network Access Control (NAC) technology in the marketplace, on the heels of receiving the “Most Innovative New Security Product for 2012” award from InfoSec Products Guide, today announces receiving a significant round of financing from the Disruptive Innovation Fund. This round is being led by Matt Christensen, Managing Director of Rose Park Advisors LLC. Mr. Christensen has also joined NetClarity’s Board of Directors as the lead outside institutional investor in the Company.
“While Firewalls protect networks from the outside-in, over 80% of Network attacks and exploitation happen from the inside-out. As a result, there is a growing demand for solutions that deal with internal risk, especially in those organizations with tighter budgets, smaller IT staff and hard-to-manage remote offices,” said Hal Charnley, President & CEO, NetClarity, Inc. “In addition, the “Bring Your Own Device” (BYOD) and “Mobile Device Management” (MDM) scenarios of guest, rogue, malicious insider, consultant and employee device access on both wired and wireless networks has become another major area of internal risk and is driving rapid market expansion for mid-market organizations. This round of capital will allow us to continue the build-out of our global marketing and sales efforts as well as significantly bolster our product development teams.”
“We are honored to be leading this round and helping shape NetClarity’s rapid expansion to meet the growing demands of their channel partners throughout the globe. We look for innovative businesses who are taking a unique approach versus the incumbent providers; we believe in NetClarity’s disruptive and award winning NACwall security solution,” said Matt Chistensen, Managing Director, Rose Park Advisors, LLC.
