It also screens for vulnerabilities in computers connected to your network, returning mobile users, wireless devices, and new devices.
Optinet from Black Box scans, identifies, and controls Internet traffic, and provides advanced content filtering, reporting, application prioritization, bandwidth management, and threat protection. This Layer 7, deep-packet inspection device optimizes Internet use for your organization.

Its highly reliable, accurate multistage fingerprint verification can even look for “life” in a fingerprint and rejects pictures of or silicon imprints of a finger.
Other cutting-edge solutions include the F3X Fiber Fault Finder Gun that enables users to point and shoot to detect leaks, breaks, and bends in fiber cable, even in aerial lines; SpaceGAIN cables that reduce cabling space, management, and costs; an extensive selection of AV extension and distribution products that take your video and audio where they need to go; and network security solutions that are affordable and easy to implement, and really work.
