Enterasys® Network Access Control is a complete standards-based, multi-vendor interoperable pre-connect and post-connect Network Access Control solution. Using Enterasys NAC Controller and/or NAC Gateway appliances with NetSight® NAC Manager configuration and reporting software, IT administrators can deploy a leading-edge NAC solution to ensure only the right users have access to the right information from the right place at the right time. Existing investments are protected since no new switching hardware needs to be deployed, and no agent needs to be installed on all of your computers. The Enterasys NAC solution performs multi-user, multi-method authentication, vulnerability assessment and assisted remediation. You have the flexibility of choosing whether or not to restrict access for guests/contractors to public Internet services only—and how to handle authenticated internal users/devices that do not pass the security posture assessment.
The Enterasys NAC advantage is business-oriented granular visibility and control over individual users and applications. Enterasys NAC policies permit, deny, prioritize, rate-limit, tag, re-direct and audit network traffic based on user identity, time and location, device type and other environmental variables. Enterasys NAC supports RFC 3580 port and VLAN-based quarantine for Enterasys and third-party switches, plus more powerful Secure Networks™ isolation policies (which prevent compromised endpoints from launching attacks while in the quarantine state) on Enterasys switches.
