Network Admission Control (NAC) is available as an architecture-based framework solution designed to take advantage of an existing base of both Cisco network technologies and existing deployments of security and management solutions from other manufacturers.
Through the Network Admission Control Program for third-party vendor integration, Cisco shares technology features with participants, who design and sell client and server applications as well as services that incorporate features compatible with the NAC infrastructure. The Program currently has more than 75 participants.
