Is ACS required in NAC appliance.

November 30Hits:0

Hi,
One of our clients have decided to implement NAC. They need to know what the various options are especially the NAC appliance (3310 etc). I read that the appliance is a device like a server which has hard disks, cd roms etc. But the documents dont say much about the configuration of the server , whether ACS is required to be installed on the server etc? Can we do port based 802.1x with the help of this device (like dynamically assigning a host to a particular vlan is OS/anti virus is not update?
Thx in advance.

NAC appliance willl work with many authentication methods. NAC Framework requires ACS. Getting back to the NAC appliance.... You can use ACS/RADIUS/LDAP/etc.. to authenitcate the users.
THe Appliance will work with Patch Management (after authentication) to insure that tthe right apoplications and patch levels are met. We work with Altiris/BigFIX/Patch Link/SMS and more.
The great thing about NAC Appliace is that it works for all four major use cases:
1. VPN users
2. WIFI users
3. LAN/wired users
4. GUest/vistors
We can
1. authenticate
2. Posture assess (scan)
3. Quarantine/
4. Remediate
You don't want users to have to learn three different ways to connect to the netowrk.
802.1x is working for WIFI today and for LAN conections we use one user per port so they get the whole pipe. In the future we will support subdivision of a Access Switch port for multiple devices and users.
I hope this helps.
