Network Access Control Module
IT administrators who support highly mobile field forces need security solutions that protect their networks without having an impact on the productivity of the mobile professionals they serve. NetMotion Mobility Network Access Control (NAC) allows devices to connect to the enterprise network only after meeting specified security requirements, and it gives administrators greater control and flexibility over how and when to administer remediation policies.
Mobile NAC typically deploys in minutes without any need to reconfigure network infrastructure. A NAC wizard makes it easy to configure and enforce access security policies. NAC is not supported on the Mobility client for iPad, iPhone, iPod touch and Android devices. Administrators can check compliance for required software including:
Operating system version
Windows™ Update status
and other applications
Flexibility and Control
Unlike automatic security policies that force users to perform time-consuming, non-critical software updates before allowing access, Mobile NAC integrates with Mobility's Policy Management Module, giving administrators flexibility and control over the response to a device that does not meet security guidelines.
Based on the severity of the problem and even the speed of their connection, administrators determine the response, which can be anything from a simple warning to a custom remediation policy that can limit application access, direct to a specific web site, initiate software downloads, or even disconnect or quarantine the device. When rules are updated, they are automatically pushed down to client devices, and devices are automatically re-scanned at regular intervals to ensure ongoing compliance.
