Juniper has completed integration of its 802.1X components with existing UAC functionality, including elements of the Odyssey Access Client and Steel-Belted Radius.
UAC 2.0 combines Funk's 802.1X components and Radius technologies with Juniper's existing UAC system, according to Hitesh Sheth, vice president of security products at Juniper.
"With UAC 2.0 we enable customers to use Juniper's firewalls and/or any 802.1X-enabled switch or wireless access point as enforcement points to secure access to applications and resources across distributed networks," he said.
UAC 2.0 is an open standards-based Layer 2 and Layer 3 access control supporting current and future interoperability within multi-vendor environments.
"Enterprise networks are increasingly complex and distributed, with a multitude of users requiring access to critical business information from network endpoints that may be poorly managed, unmanaged, or in many cases completely unmanageable," said Lawrence Orans, research director at Gartner.
"The threat from dangerous and vulnerable endpoints has made network access control a critical security process for enterprises.
"As the access control market evolves and access control deployments increase in scale and scope, enterprises will require solutions that enable them to leverage existing investments in network and security infrastructure, and are capable of interoperating seamlessly within heterogeneous IT environments."
