Cisco Clean Access is a turnkey software solution that automatically detects, isolates, and cleans infected and/or vulnerable devices that attempt to access the network. It identifies whether machines are compliant with security policies and repairs these vulnerabilities before permitting access to the network.
Cisco Clean Access is an end-to-end network registration and enforcement solution that allows network administrators to authenticate, authorize, and interrogate users and their machines prior to allowing users onto the network. This advanced, integrated suite of network security tools recognizes users, their devices, and their role in the network. This first step occurs at the point of authentication, before malicious code can cause damage. Cisco Clean Access evaluates whether machines are compliant with security policies. Security policies can vary by user type, device type, or operating system. It also enforces security policies by blocking, isolating, and repairing non-compliant machines. Non-compliant machines are redirected into a quarantine area, where remediation occurs at the discretion of the administrator.
Cisco Clean Access is a software solution that is loaded onto standard, off-the-shelf servers provided by the customer. Clean Access Server is the device that initiates assessment and enforces access privileges based on endpoint compliance.
A failover bundle contains two Cisco Clean Access servers. This provides redundancy in the event that the production server experiences a disruption. Cisco recommends that all Clean Access products include failover, especially for in-band deployments.Product Highlights
