Access under control

GCN tech brief

Juniper Networks Inc. of Sunnyvale, Calif., has released Version 2 of its Unified Access Control system. This Network Access Control software assures that only appropriate computers can log onto a network and that they have the appropriate patches before they connect. This is particularly valuable for those organizations that do a lot of remote access, virtual private networking and have guest workers and contractors weighing in. The new version is the first to work with the IEEE 802.1X standard, allowing the software to work with network switches other than those made by Juniper, according to Stephen Philip, director of product marketing for Juniper's Security Products Group.
