Tom would like to deploy NAC technology that is capable of constantly monitoring the configuration of endpoint machines and quarantining machines that fail to meet a security baseline. Which technology would be most appropriate for Tom to deploy?
A. Agent-based NAC
B. Agentless NAC
C. Captive portal
D. Dissolvable NAC
Correct Answer: A
Tom should deploy an agent-based NAC solution or, more specifically, a permanent agent. This technology leaves software running on the endpoint that may remain in constant contact with the NAC solution. Agentless NAC, captive portal solutions, and dissolvable agents do not maintain a constant presence on the system and would not meet Tom’s requirements.
