Prevent WLAN access to users with virus?

Unanswered Question
Jun 7th, 2009

Is there any way to prevent users with a virus from accessing our wireless network? Intrusion Protection and NAC are not yet installed. Would I need to temporarily enable MAC filtering on the WLANs and add the MAC of each wireless device I have verified is not infected? Thanks.

I have this problem too.

ACS has some posture validation capabilities, however I have never used them? This may resolve the issue in the short term.

MAC filtering can cause an administrative headache with a large client base.

A propper NAC solution is the way to go with WIDS and WIPS.
