Working in conjunction with the 802.1x standards built into Extreme's Ethernet switches and ExtremeXOS operating system, the Sentriant AG protects a network by scanning end-point devices to ensure they're free from threats and are in compliance with security policies. The solution employs StillSecure's agentless Safe Access technology.
