Can SNAC detect and prevent the Unauthorized Wireless Access ?

This issue has been solved. See solution.

Hi People,

I'm not sure if this product can actually help me to achieve the following Payment Card Industry standard v 2.0

in short question is that I need to know how to prevent unauthorized or rogue Access Point in use within the company

"Verify that the methodology is adequate to detect and identify any unauthorized wireless access points, including at least the following:

* WLAN cards inserted into system components
* Portable wireless devices connected to system components (for example, by USB, etc.)

* Wireless devices attached to a network port or network device".

 

Any kind of help and assistance would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance.

You can use the Application and Device control in SEP to block USB devices at the endpoint by their device ID and/or class.  This will allow you to block networking and bluetooth devices.  See the SEP documentation for this.

You could also use SNAC to forceably remove any non-standard networking devices by automatically removing registry entries that deal with any networking device that does not match your company's standard issue devices.

With a LAN Enforcer, you can block access to the network at the switch using 802.1x unless the user is authenticated via your Active Directory/RADIUS server.

For a quick overview of the Enforcers, see this post:  https://www-secure.symantec.com/connect/forums/which-enforcer-better

 

If a post helps you, please mark it as the solution to your issue.
