Kaspersky Lab, a leading developer of secure content management solutions, announces that the Kaspersky Administration Kit 6.0 has successfully passed compatibility tests for the Cisco Trust Agent 2.1 application, a component of the Cisco NAC solution . Based on the test results, Kaspersky Administration Kit 6.0 was certified "Cisco Compatible".
The testing was performed in the laboratory of AppLabs Technologies, a service company.
Kaspersky Administration Kit 6.0 is a powerful and flexible tool for effective, centralized management of Kaspersky Lab products on networks of any size and complexity with support for remote offices and mobile users.
Cisco Network Admission Control (NAC) is a set of technologies and solutions providing control over network access, which is based on an industry-wide initiative implemented under the leadership of Cisco Systems. NAC enables customers to provide Internet access only to secure end-devices (e.g., workstations, servers and PDAs) which meet the requirements defined by the system administrator and to restrict access to devices that do not meet these requirements.
“The Open Space Security concept, on which the sixth generation of Kaspersky Lab business products are based, involves providing protection for all nodes on the corporate network regardless of their location. An important security component under this concept is checking mobile devices that return to the corporate network for compliance with its security policies. Cisco NAC support implemented in the Kaspersky Administration Kit does this by allowing access to the local network only for those computers which have antivirus protection meeting the requirements of the security policy,” says Alexey Kalgin, Deputy Product Development Director at Kaspersky Lab.
