Symantec Network Access Control ensures that a company's client computers are compliant with the company's security policies before the computers are allowed to access the network. Symantec Network Access Control uses a Host Integrity Policy and an optional Symantec Enforcer to discover and evaluate which computers are compliant. The clients that are not compliant are directed to a remediation server. The remediation server downloads the necessary software, patches, virus definitions updates, and so on, to make the client computer compliant. Symantec Network Access Control also continually monitors endpoints for changes in the compliance status.
Symantec Network Access Control is a companion product to Symantec Endpoint Protection. Both products include Symantec Endpoint Protection Manager, which provides the infrastructure to install and manage the Symantec Endpoint Protection and Symantec Network Access Control clients. The Symantec Endpoint Protection client protects your endpoints from both known threats and those threats that have not been seen before.
