SALEM, N.H., Aug. 14, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Enterasys Networks, a Siemens Enterprise Communications Company, has been awarded a Readers' Choice Award by eSchool Media for its Network Access Control, also known as Mobile IAM, a comprehensive BYOD solution that provides total security, full IT control and predictable network experience for all users. The awards honor the top-of-the-line products and services in educational technology, as chosen by readers of the publication. Educators and administrators from K-12 schools, colleges and universities throughout North America had the opportunity to nominate their favorite education technology products or services for a two month period earlier this year.

"The success of Enterasys Mobile IAM in education can be attributed to its ability to securely manage BYOD networks within schools, while providing extensive network authentication and identity-based access control," said Bob Nilsson, director of vertical solutions marketing at Enterasys. "Winning an eSchool Media Readers' Choice Award validates the extensive work we are doing to provide the K-12 and higher-ed markets with the highest quality education technology. Business in our education sector increased by 22 percent in fiscal 2012, and we are looking to bring that number even higher over the next year."

Mobile IAM has allowed K-12 schools, colleges and universities to advance to the next level in education technology. The solution can support devices ranging from the latest mobile Wi-Fi devices and cutting edge technology to older computers and game stations. With Mobile IAM, Enterasys customers can operate their individual networks securely and support the growing demand for BYOD in the classroom. As a result, student demands for an enhanced classroom experience are met, while educators are provided the assurance they need that their networks are secure and within their control, a win-win for all users.

"We received nearly 700 nominations this year, which is a true testament to the competitive nature of these awards," said Dennis Pierce, editor in chief at eSchool Media. "The selection of winners this year truly represents the education technology products and services that have proven to be effective throughout K-12 schools and higher-ed campuses across the nation. Our goal is to provide readers with valuable information about the most efficient and effective products on the market that will best serve their technology needs."

The winners will be recognized in a special feature published in the July/August 2013 edition of eSchool News and eCampus News, as well as on eSchoolNews.com, eCampusNews.com, and eClassroomNews.com. To learn more about this year's winners, visit http://www.eschoolnews.com/rca.
