This session will highlight how Network Access Control is the ultimate patch checking system. By utilizing a set of key protocols NAC will define and implement a policy that will define the access requirement for devices attempting to access your network. Those policies are designed to look for among other things pre-admission endpoint security policy checks (such as antivirus or even patch levels) and post-admission controls over where users and devices can go on a network and what they can do. Bottom-line we will discuss how NAC might integrate the automatic remediation process (fixing non-compliant nodes before allowing access) into the network systems, allowing the network infrastructure such as routers, switches and firewalls to work together with back office servers and end user computing equipment to ensure the information system is operating securely before interoperability is allowed.
