AU's Network Admission Control System Upgraded
Since 2004 AU has used the Cisco Clean Access (CCA) system to limit access to the university network to authenticated members of the AU community and to perform a health check to make sure that each workstation meets our minimum security requirements.
This past summer, the Office of Information Technology performed a large-scale upgrade of the system to expand its functionality. Now CCA is able to perform a health check on Windows 7 workstations and support a larger variety of antivirus software. This upgrade also positions us to begin performing a health check of Macintosh workstations in the next academic year.
