Alcatel-Lucent offers a seamless, secure and scalable enterprise network access control (NAC) solution through its embedded network security framework. This framework includes a comprehensive security solution for verifying endpoint integrity through host integrity checking (HIC).
The InfoExpress CyberGatekeeper operates best in conjunction with the Alcatel-Lucent OmniSwitch and OmniAccess WLAN product's HIC integration function, but also can function as a seamless overlay with other Alcatel-Lucent or third-party systems. The CyberGatekeeper is a one-stop HIC and NAC product for enterprises. HIC capabilities screen endpoints and allow them to access the network only if they meet specific security policy requirements.
The CyberGatekeeper supports both HIC desktop agent and agentless (Web-based agent) methods. It allows the management of endpoint requirement policy across all user connection modes (wired, wireless or remote VPN), all user types (employee, contractor or guest), and a broad range of devices and platforms (Microsoft® Windows®, Linux®, Mac OS devices). CyberGatekeeper can utilize the customer's Windows Active Directory for Authentication and Role derivation without the need for 802.1x infrastructure. The CyberGatekeeper can be deployed seamlessly in just a few hours with minimal network changes. The product is available in an appliance/software version and a software-only version.
