Cisco NAC Features?

Hi There

I noticed that there are a couple of features in my production Cisco NAC Manager v4.7.2? Can someone explain to me briefly what can I do with these features;

1. What can a Network Scanner under Device Management > Clean Access, in CAM do? Will this feature stress my network further?

2. I noticed that to add rules in Traffic Control under User Management > User Roles in CAM, is easy, assuming I have many roles, but to delete them, I have to do this one by one. Is this statement true or false?

Regards,

Ram

Re: Cisco NAC Features?

Hi Ram,

The scanner will add overhead to the network. The more plugins you add, the more overhead there is.

Nessus scanning is really not possible in a University setting. Scanning requires administrative access to the machines and the client firewall allowing traffic from the clean access server. This is much more plausible in a managed desktop scenario.

You are correct about deletion of the rules, there is no supported way no way to do a bulk deletion at this time.

Hope that helps.
