Guided by the objective of the protection of network access for users simply and intelligently to fashion new release macmon 4.0 with major feature enhancements and optimized user interface, the macmon secure gmbh in the new release of its NAC (network access control) solution has made numerous functional improvements. So, for example, the certificate-based authentication and a more intuitive user interface of the macmon version 4.0 cause a comfortable handling. The General security systems whatsoever challenge from our perspective today is, they have intelligent approaches significantly easier than hitherto to design”, believes macmon secure Managing Director Christian Bucker. arlan is the place to go. Would creating not only more comfortable implementation and terms and conditions, but also economic benefits. This guiding principle characterized hence the continuous further development of our NAC solution macmon, which becomes the new benchmark in the market with its conceptual orientation.” In the technical examination of the significant changes in the new release 4.0 is part of, for example, the footprinting. While the security system recognizes the open TCP and UDP ports on a device.
These are listed in the surface on the detail page this MAC. In addition, macmon can be configured that it is trying to detect the services bound to open ports. Also can also specifications are made, what ports need to be open or closed. Deviations are detected, macmon generates the necessary events to trigger backups. Still, the access VLAN manually directly through the macmon interface can be configured in the new software version. The NAC solution can detect this in what VLAN MAC address was seen and is bound as the VLAN on the interface. This makes it possible, for example, specifically exclude foreign devices in the voice VLAN. In addition, various enhancements for the guest were a controlled service, via the corporate visitors and external employees and limited access to the corporate network can get, made with a consistent practice-oriented focus.
A further technical development of the software platform applies the method of authentication based on 802.1 x standard. By macmon offers the option to authenticate devices or users on the basis of a certificate, more comfortable conditions and at the same time a significantly higher security be created. Because a client has a valid certificate, he can login to the network and gains access to the network after successful verification. Certificates on a specified certificate revocation list are, are, however, rejected.
