Siemens Enterprise Communications has announced that it has successfully integrated its HiPath Wireless Manager with Microsoft’s Network Access Protection platform.
Siemens launched the HiPath Wireless Manager, a centralised wireless Lan management platform, earlier this month. It is designed to enable enterprise-wide management of thousands of wireless access points and tens of thousands of users from a single console.
Network Access Protection is a policy enforcement technology built into the forthcoming Windows Vista and Windows Server “Longhorn” operating systems, designed to help users protect network assets from unhealthy computers by enforcing compliance with network health policies.
Integration between HiPath Wireless Manager and the Network Access Protection platform will mean IT managers do not have to duplicate their network security infrastructure for wireless users. Instead, Network Access Protection will provide a single administration interface to manage corporate security policies and help prevent wireless security breaches.
Network Access Protection can be used as a common interface to control wireless and wired LAN access, simplifying management.
