Cisco to Buy Meetinghouse

Cisco Systems(R) today announced a definitive agreement to acquire the privately-held Meetinghouse Data Communications, Inc. of Portsmouth, NH.  Meetinghouse provides a client-side 802.1X supplicant security software that allows enterprise customers to restrict network access to only authorized users and/or host devices attempting to gain access to networked resources through both wired and wireless media.

When integrated with Cisco’s existing security portfolio, Meetinghouse’s AEGIS SecureConnect products will enable Cisco to provide a single unified wired and wireless client to enterprise customers that will help them reduce operational costs by simplifying the security management of a broad array of host devices and operating systems.

“The Meetinghouse software supplicant is a natural extension to existing Cisco initiatives such as the Cisco Self Defending Network via Network Admission Control (NAC) and the Cisco Compatible Extensions (CCX) program.”
