Who is this deity?

Dear Members:

In some Vaishnava temples, a vinayakar-like
deity is installed near temple entrance.
The deity has Vaishnava oordhva pundram on its forehead.

Would anyone please identify this deity and 
whether the deity is a Nithya-soori and
why it is installed etc?

Thanks

J. Venkatanathan
