3 Pints and a NAC

Alan Shimel links to a video feature he starred in before RSA, discussing NAC over pints with Mike Fratto at InformationWeek and Dominic from Nevis Networks.

 

From NSS Labs…

Rick Moy clarifies that there is no such thing as a “PCI compliant product” – rather, NSS likes to say that products address or support compliance, but no product can make a company compliant. He stresses that we need to broaden the security discussion beyond tools and address policies and practices as well.
