Hi Sushil,

If you are taking a poll, please count me in for the appliance over the NAC framework. I've done both and there are more variables in the framework than when you use the appliances. From my experience, the more variables the harder it is to troubleshoot. Your mileage may vary.

I would also add that doing an implementation which employs a Virtual Gateway, Out-of-Band

for wired users, and Central Deployment is the best use of your time and money.

Of course, if you are using NAC for VPN and Wireless users you still need dedicated CAS devices for these require In-band deployments.

Hope this helps.

hi paul thanks a lot for ur reply. but i would also like to know that the variable options that we can configure in the framework are also available in the appliance also.

like the parameters available for posture assessment and remediation are same in both the methods.

waiting for ur reply mate.
