Channel-friendly Rohati Systems is stepping out of stealth mode with a network access control appliance and a new partner program.

In 2006, five security, systems and networking experts with a combined 40-plus years of experience at Cisco Systems formed a network security startup and took aim at the access management market.

It uses XACML (Extensible Access Control Markup Language) in a bid to eliminate the need for client or server agents or any changes to applications.
