Dynamic NAC for Mac

InfoExpress today released the latest version of its Dynamic NAC network access control software with support for Mac OS X as well as Linux and Windows Vista. The software aims to provide deeper endpoint visibility, enforcement, compliance, and security for companies running Macs, Linux systems, and Windows installations. Dynamic NAC also offers advanced authentication options, including redundancy and machine authentication as well as improved reporting to provide greater detail on endpoint visibility across every supported platform. The company also released new versions of its CyberGatekeeper software designed to control access to the network by auditing all devices before granting them access.

"With deep and granular inspection into Vista, Mac and Linux endpoints, InfoExpress offers a unique multi-platform NAC solution with unprecedented ease of deployment. Designed to operate in real-world enterprises with different end-point platforms on diverse network configurations, Dynamic NAC installs without the need for network changes."

Dynamic NAC provides business benefits to help ensure networks meet compliance regulations like PCI, HIPAA, and Sarbanes-Oxley (SOX) which require companies to keep tight control of all devices and users on the network. To ensure compliance, organizations must have an accurate picture of the network, report on audit information, and remediate endpoints that have fallen out of compliance. Dynamic NAC's deep inspection capability provides detailed information on who is accessing the network, log- in attempts and a reporting feature that provides information that can be provided to executives in real-time.

Dynamic NAC's new peer-based enforcement model turns compliant endpoints into dynamic policy enforcement points that block unauthorized devices from the network, which is especially well-suited for managing traffic from rogues and guests that do not have the client software installed, according to InfoExpress. Dynamic NAC enforcers are unique in that they are able to quarantine all network devices; even those that do not have any special software installed locally.
