I'm doing a research on the Cisco NAC (without the appliance) concept and I would like to ask the following:
1. Securing network access - Needed products are Cisco ACS and Cisco access devices (2960, for example). The feature needed is NAC Layer 2 IEEE 802.1x. Is this correct?
2. Forcing Windows PC to download OS patches according to company policy. Needed products are Cisco ACS, Cisco access devices, Cisco Trust Agent and Microsoft NAP (Network Access Protection)? Is there a way to do this only with Windows Server (not using NAP)?
3. Forcing Windows PCs to update Anti Virus software. Needed products are Cisco ACS, Cisco access devices, Cisco Trust Agent and Anti Virus server? Is this correct?
Please, give me some advice.
Thanks in advance,
