headquarters to Cambridge, MA. The move will enable Bradford to respond to
increasing demand for its products and services, and facilitate business

As the proliferation of mobile devices continues to
accelerate, organizations of all types are tasked with ensuring these devices
don’t compromise network security, and that authorized devices obtain secure,
convenient network access.
As a result, Bradford experienced exceptional traction in
enterprise verticals (non-Education). In fact, nearly half of Bradford’s new
customers are from these verticals, including Dassault SystÃ¨mes, Florida Power
& Light, Home Shopping Network, Scholastic Books, Parkland Health &
Hospital Systems and UC Irvine Medical Center.

evolve. The onslaught of mobile devices such as iPhones, iPads, Androids and
BlackBerrys has put considerable strain on security and IT resources, and
created tremendous need for a product like Bradford’s Network Sentry that can
provide unparalleled visibility into devices and users on a network,” said Dan
Haley, chief executive officer, Bradford Networks.
