Product Bulletin No. 3204

Cisco® Secure Access Control Server (ACS) is a highly scalable, high-performance access control server that provides a comprehensive identity networking solution. As an important component of the Cisco Identity-Based Networking Services (IBNS) architecture, Cisco Secure ACS extends access security by combining authentication, user or administrator access, and policy control from a centralized identity networking framework. This allows enterprise networks to have greater flexibility and mobility, increased security, and user productivity gains. Cisco Secure ACS supports a wide array of access connection types, including wired and wireless LAN, dialup, broadband, content, storage, voice over IP (VoIP), firewalls, and VPNs.

PRODUCT OVERVIEW

Cisco Secure ACS is also an important component of Cisco Network Admission Control. Cisco Network Admission Control (NAC) is a multiple vendor program led by Cisco Systems ® that focuses on limiting damage from emerging security threats such as viruses and worms. With NAC, customers can allow network access only to compliant and trusted endpoint devices (such as PCs, servers, and personal digital assistants [PDAs]) and can restrict the access of noncompliant devices. This innovation helps enable compliant endpoints or other system elements to report misuse emanating from rogue or infected systems during an attack. Cisco expects to use this intelligence to dynamically quarantine infected systems from the rest of the network and significantly reduce virus, worm, and blended threat propagation.
Cisco Secure ACS is available in two options: Cisco Secure ACS for Windows and the Cisco Secure ACS Solution Engine. For more information on the Cisco Secure ACS Solution Engine please see http://www.cisco.com/en/US/products/sw/secursw/ps5338/index.html.
