ESET Plugin for Cisco NAC Released

ESET Plugin for Cisco NAC Release Candidate is now available for public testing.

Cisco NAC (Network Admission Control) is a technology that works in concert with Cisco network devices to ensure a clean and secure network environment. The NAC system enforces security policies by enabling or blocking access to critical network resources based on the detected client security status.

An endpoint running an antivirus program with outdated virus signature database can pose a serious security risk to the entire network. The antivirus program may fail to detect the most recent malware threats in the network, resulting in an infection and further spread of the new threat throughout the network.

Cisco NAC interoperates with endpoints protected by ESET NOD32 Antivirus and ESET Smart Security 4. With the ESET Plugin for Cisco NAC, earlier versions of ESET NOD32 Antivirus (2.7 and 3.0) and ESET Smart Security can also ensure interoperability. ESET Plugin for Cisco NAC will enable ESET NOD32 Antivirus and ESET Smart Security to respond with security status, including version information of the virus signature database on an endpoint, before the Cisco NAC server grants that endpoint admission to the company network. This helps ensure a high level of security within the company network.
