Bradford extends security

Bradford Networks today announced that it has expanded its Bradford Campus Manager Security Management Application, an Endpoint Compliance tool that helps ensure all devices connecting to a network meet minimum security policies, to and Linux platforms. The application detects and isolates security risks within a network, providing new functionality that verifies core operating system versions of Linux running on 32-bit Intel hardware, and Macintosh platforms running Mac OS X. The software is non-persistent; it is automatically downloaded, executed, and then removed upon successful completion. The three-step process ensures that each Mac is checked before being allowed to connect to the production network, non-compliant "at risk" devices are isolated in a quarantine VLAN for remediation, and remediation provides "self-help" to resolve issues without help desk intervention. Mac support in the security management application will be available within 30 days (pricing and system requirements were unavailable).
