  • Cisco Secure ACS

    Hello,I have a doubt. I think I canīt do with ACS 5.X that PC clients canīt connect to the network if they donīt have the antivirus updated or donīt have service pack X installed. Am I right? To do this I need another product right? Like the NAC appliance?

    What I can do with ACS 5.X for example are assign users to VLANs ,restict access based on users/passwords(802.1X) right?

    Thanks in avdance.

    Not sure about the service pack (I doubt it) but ACS does support NAC for multiple antivirus vendors. I know for a fact Trend Micro Officescan is supported. So ACS could check to see if the av is installed and up to date and if not restrict to a guest vlan or restricted vlan etc. You can do alot with Cisco ACS. You can manage your devices with radius. Authenticate vpn's . Configure per user dynamic ACL's. Dot1x authentication. Can link it to MS AD.
