Improve security and increase level of automated policy enforcement with Cisco and Intel

15 December, 2006

Cisco and Intel have identified the most critical challenge facing IT departments is securing network endpoints by validating their compliance with network policies. Network administrators need a way to automate policy enforcement for all endpoints regardless of PC location, power state, the availability of the OS, or the status of management agents.

To meet these challenges Cisco and Intel are working together to enable better enforcement of endpoint security policies through an integration of Cisco Security Agent2* and Intel® vPro™ technology.
