StillSecure Leverages WSUS for Automated NAC Remediation

New WSUS Integration Provides Seamless Policy Enforcement and Patching for Windows Environments

SUPERIOR, CO--(Marketwire - June 10, 2009) - StillSecure®, provider of secure network infrastructure solutions, today announced that Safe Access, the company's award winning NAC (network access control) solution, has been integrated with WSUS (Windows Server Update Service) for automated remediation of non-compliant devices. The integration provides administrators with a closed loop process for monitoring and enforcing the health of an endpoint device -- from the moment it connects to the network to the time it logs off. Furthermore, it provides organizations with a streamlined process for ensuring that network devices meet corporate policies and requirements.

WSUS is one of the most frequently used patch and remediation tools for Windows based computers. It is a free download available from Microsoft that automatically deploys new updates -- including critical updates, security updates, service packs, and hotfixes -- to endpoint devices. When integrated with Safe Access, non-compliant devices that don't meet corporate security policy are updated according to administrator-defined policy requirements ranging from automated remediation to self-remediation.

"Automated remediation has become an integral piece of the complete NAC lifecycle, and an end-to-end process to manage non-compliant endpoint devices is critical to a successful NAC strategy," said Alan Shimel, Chief Strategy Officer of StillSecure. "By integrating with WSUS, Safe Access provides a seamless method for ensuring endpoint devices are up-to-date and in compliance with corporate security policy."

The new WSUS integration complements StillSecure's existing automated remediation capabilities for Safe Access that are available via integration with Microsoft SMS.
