In addition to the network access control, detailed monitoring of the authorized systems with respect to compliance with the security guidelines is increasingly important. In many situations, "small security breaches" are adequate to provide easily accessible points of attack. Permanent monitoring of the "compliance status" and automated enforcement of guidelines is thus indispensable. As a specialist for network access control, macmon secure is aware of this requirement. With macmon compliance, macmon is the first manufacturer to offer the option to use multiple, connectable components in order to effectively enforce the company guidelines.
