TCG's Trusted Network Connect (TNC) network security architecture and open standards enable intelligent policy decisions, dynamic security enforcement, and communication between security systems. TNC provides pervasive security, Network Access Control (NAC) and interoperability in multi-vendor environments.
TNC Offers Interoperable Standards For:
Secure Guest Access: With TNC, guests obtain restricted network access, without threatening the host network.
User Authentication: TNC integrates user authentication with network access to better manage who can use the network and what they are allowed to do.
Endpoint Integrity: TNC performs a health check for devices connecting to the network. Devices out of compliance can be restricted or repaired.
Clientless Endpoint Management: TNC offers a framework to assess, manage and secure clientless end points connected to the network, such as IP phones, cameras and printers.
Coordinated Security: Security systems coordinate and share information via the IF-MAP standard, improving accuracy, and enabling intelligent response.
