Trinity University Uses Cisco Network Admission Control to Deny Network Access to Devices With Malware and Viruses

Trinity University is one of the top private undergraduate institutions in the United States, ranking first among western U.S. universities by U.S. News & World Report for 15 consecutive years. As with any large computing environment, protecting users and the Trinity University network from viruses and malware is a constant challenge. Unlike a private enterprise, however, the university's IT staff must try to secure an environment in which thousands of new users appear each year, bring their own laptops from home, and require unfettered access to the Internet. To address the problem, the university deployed a NAC solution in 2005 aimed at helping ensure that all users complied with security policies, such as having up-to-date antivirus and operating system software.
