My School has made CISCO NAC compulsary. But it is not detecting Comodo Internet security suite nor its virus definition updates. Please tell me how to proceed. I do not want to switch to some other antivirus just because my School does not detect Comodo.
Looks like your school admin could do some manual changes to the NAC config.
Where possible, Cisco recommends using AV Rules mapped to AV Definition Update Requirements when checking antivirus software on clients, and AS Rules mapped to AS Definition Update Requirements when checking anti-spyware software on clients. In the case of non-supported AV or AS products, or if an AV/AS product/version is not available through AV Rules/AS Rules, administrators always have the option of creating their own custom checks, rules, and requirements for the AV/AS vendor (and/or using Cisco provided pc_ checks and pr_rules) through Device Management > Clean Access > Clean Access Agent (use New Check, New Rule, and New File/Link/Local Check Requirement). See the Cisco NAC Appliance - Clean Access Manager Configuration Guide, Release 4.7(2) for configuration details.
Note that Clean Access works in tandem with the installation schemes and mechanisms provided by supported AV/AS vendors. In the case of unforeseen changes to underlying mechanisms for AV/AS products by vendors, the Cisco NAC Appliance team will update the Supported AV/AS Product List and/or Agent in the timeliest manner possible in order to support the new AV/AS product changes. In the meantime, administrators can always use the “custom” rule workaround for the AV/AS product (such as pc_checks/pr_ rules) and configure the requirement for “Any selected rule succeeds.”
And I’ll notify Staff to get in contact with CISCO to become part of the supported AV/AS list.
Thanks for the information.
Our admin is insisting us on using the anti-virus provided by our School and is not ready to change configurations. I guess, I will have to wait till Comodo is associated with Cisco NAC to use Comodo on campus. :-\
