CUPERTINO, Calif. -- Symantec Corp. (Nasdaq: SYMC) today announced it has extended its Symantec Network Access Control software with new features that enable enterprises to more easily enforce network access control across all managed and unmanaged endpoints. It is the only network access control (NAC) product to offer remote scanning in addition to both persistent and dissolvable agents, and to offer agentless NAC enforcement, Mac OS X agent support, and an integrated 802.1X supplicant in a single product.
"Through offering a software product that integrates three assessment options: persistent agents, dissolvable agents, and remote vulnerability scanning, Symantec provides a thorough solution for evaluating endpoints on the LAN," says Chris Liebert, senior analyst, Yankee Group. "Enterprises have multiple requirements for evaluating endpoints that may be managed, unmanaged, with disparate operating systems and that require both wired and wireless network access."
