The InfoExpress CyberGatekeeper solution is a core component of the Alcatel-Lucent Safe Network Access Control Solution. It integrates with Alcatel-Lucent OmniSwitch and VitalQIP.
The CyberGatekeeper solution enables enterprise businesses to provide guest access and ensure endpoint devices are verified to be compliant and healthy when connecting to the network. Only those endpoint devices that are compliant with enterprise security policies are allowed access to the production network. Those endpoint devices that fail the host integrity check are redirected and placed into quarantine.
The CyberGatekeeper solution attempts to bring the endpoint inline with policy requirements. Once compliant with security policies, the endpoint is allowed network access. As long as the endpoint is connected to the network infrastructure, the CyberGatekeeper solution provides continuous surveillance. If a violation of the security policies is detected the endpoint is immediately placed into quarantine
InfoExpress CyberGatekeeper is easy and fast to deploy without major network overhaul and without sacrificing effectiveness.
The CyberGatekeeper solution requires zero network changes or upgrades. Heterogeneous network support ensures interoperability in multi-vendor network environments.
Ensures 100% of network end points are compliant (patch levels, configurations, and application settings) or they are quarantined until remediated
Separates authentication mechanism from security
802.1x not a requirement for host integrity check (HIC)
End points can be plugged into phones and still be secured
Will not interfere with existing VoIP deployments
Keeps rogue devices off the network
Reduces vulnerabilities as security solutions, OS and patches are assured to be running and up-to-date
Lowers help desk costs – automatic remediation of non-compliant PCs
Improves security compliance/auditing scorecard
Reduces risks associated with improperly configured computers
Integrates with existing patch management solutions to preserve software investments
Reduces support costs by maintaining standard configurations across desktops
