Security solutions provider, InfoExpress, has announced that its CyberGatekeeper Family of Network Access Control (NAC) products now supports Microsoft Windows Hyper-V for virtualized Windows server environments. As reported by the company on Benzinga.com, offering support on Hyper-V and VMware in addition to physical appliances, InfoExpress lets customers choose the appropriate NAC implementation that best meets their needs.
“By offering support on Hyper-V and VMware in addition to physical appliances, InfoExpress lets customers choose the appropriate NAC implementation that best meets their needs. For example, an organization with more users in one region can host the virtual appliance on a larger server. At smaller regions, the CyberGatekeeper virtual appliance can share a smaller server with other virtual servers. If needs change, increasing or decreasing the capacity of a virtual appliance is easy and requires almost no down time.
“CyberGatekeeper is ideal for virtual environments and centralized deployments in distributed networks. With many out-of-band enforcement methods, CyberGatekeeper servers can be placed in data centers or other central locations. In contrast, in-line NAC solutions need to be located closer to routers and switches to block traffic and generally require more servers.”
