Sophos Launches its NAC 3.0 Product

Sophos introduced its NAC 3.0 platform, a network access control (NAC) solution for protecting against threats posed by unsecured computers. Sophos NAC 3.0 combines assessment and reporting tools with comprehensive policy enforcement capabilities. Organizations can ensure security compliance even before users connect to the enterprise network whether they are logging on by LAN, remote, wired, wireless, managed or unmanaged endpoints. Some key functions include:

  • Predefined assessments covering more than 350 security applications and more than 600 OS patches with point-and-click inclusion into policy

  • Rapid response to new and unforeseen threats using custom application creation and enforcement

  • Reports on the state of endpoint compliance over time, as well as network access alerts

  • "Is current" functionality automatically updates anti-virus and anti-spyware applications, enabling administrators to set up a policy once and then forget about it.
