SUPERIOR, Colo. -- StillSecure®, provider of secure network infrastructure software, today announced StillSecure Safe Access® Lite, a free version of the industry's #1 award-winning network access control (NAC) solution. Safe Access Lite enables network and security administrators to realize immediate benefits from NAC without the complications associated with most implementations.
"The industry has been crying out for something to ease the pain of NAC implementations," said Alan Shimel, Chief Strategy Officer at StillSecure, author of www.stillsecureafteralltheseyears.com, and one of the most respected authorities on NAC. "Safe Access Lite installs seamlessly without disruption to your network. It makes it easy to understand how NAC affects your business by finding out how compliant your computers are, checking for the health of your devices, and helping to plan for a successful NAC implementation."
NAC has become notorious for being complex and time consuming to implement. Safe Access Lite accelerates the NAC adoption process without requiring network changes or posing risk to end users.Safe Access Lite is a non-disruptive, easy-to-install, monitor-only version that assesses the security posture of up to 250 endpoints to determine if they are compliant with an organization's security policies and best practices. Organizations can enforce NAC policies by quarantining unsafe devices manually or by upgrading to the commercial version of Safe Access.
Safe Access Lite offers fast endpoint testing using any or all of StillSecure's three testing methods - agentless, agent-based and web-based non-persistent agent. Hundreds of health checks are available to fully assess an endpoint's security posture, including tests for operating system patches and hotfixes, security and browser settings, personal firewall, anti-virus/anti-spyware, software required and software prohibited (such as P2P and instant messaging), as well tests for the latest worms, trojans, and viruses.
"Safe Access Lite makes it easy for administrators to get their hands dirty with NAC before deciding to move forward with a full-blown implementation," said C.A. "Bud" Dennis, Network Administrator at Nova Biomedical Corporation. "It's an eye opening experience to test your endpoints, and it truly illustrates the importance of using NAC to get a real handle on your organization's security posture."
