Sophos NAC 3.0 simplifies network access control

At the RSA Conference today, Sophos will launch Sophos NAC 3.0, a comprehensive network access control (NAC) solution for protecting against threats posed by unsecured computers. Giving IT administrators control over business partners, guests, and employees accessing their network, Sophos NAC 3.0 does not require firms to change their existing network hardware infrastructure or existing security software solution. IT teams can now easily manage who has access to what within the organisation’s network, while also better protecting systems from malware attacks.

Sophos NAC 3.0 combines powerful assessment and reporting tools with comprehensive policy enforcement capabilities. Organisations can ensure security compliance even before users connect to the enterprise network whether they are logging on by LAN, remote, wired, wireless, managed or unmanaged endpoints.

Some key functions include:

– Predefined assessments covering more than 350 security applications and more than 600 OS patches with point-and-click inclusion into policy
– Rapid response to new and unforeseen threats using custom application creation and enforcement
– Reports on the state of endpoint compliance over time as well as network access alerts
– “Is current” functionality automatically updates anti-virus and anti-spyware applications, enabling administrators to set up a policy once and then forget about it
– Complete, flexible security policies
