NAC is a multifaceted framework to thoroughly control who and what gets access to network resources, and help keep malware from entering the enterprise. Today, there are huge challenges to implementing as-yet immature NAC solutions on an enterprise-wide basis, including convoluted integration requirements, inadequate inspection capabilities, and weak policy management.
Ultimately, it all adds up to one thing: lack of control. You need more control over the amount of time it takes to put the budget together, more control over how long it takes to make a change in the budget whenever it's needed, more control over the accuracy of the data, and more control over who can access that data.

According to Baseline Consulting, approximately 32% of corporate data is contained in enduser computing (EUC) applications and approximately 68% is stored in IT controlled applications. These EUCs – primarily spreadsheets, PC databases (e.g. Access databases), BI reports, and word documents – are often stored on employee desktops and corporate file shares, and for the most part, are uncontrolled. They lack the proper safeguards and controls one would expect with IT controlled applications, including documentation, version control, back-up and archival, change control, testing, security and access control, and more.

The Rodgers & Hammerstein Organization (R&H) manages and administers musical and theatrical licensing rights for the heirs of Richard Rodgers, Oscar Hammerstein II, and many other talented writers. The company implemented Microsoft Dynamics AX in 2006 to gain complete control and visibility over its licensing and business operations. More recently, the company wanted to give employees quick and easy access to the information they need to perform their jobs more efficiently. R&H enrolled in the Microsoft Technology Adoption Program and became one of the first companies in the world to implement Microsoft Dynamics AX 2009. Now, employees throughout the organization have almost instant access to company information tailored to their specific roles. Employees spend less time tracking tasks and more time efficiently serving customers.
This document describes how Likewise and Microsoft Active Directory can foster compliance with the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard, a set of requirements for businesses that process payment card information. Developed by Visa, American Express, Discover Financial Services, and other members of the PCI Security Standards Council, the standard sets forth policies, procedures, and practices to protect customer account data. The standard includes specific requirements for strictly controlling access to customer data, authenticating business users, monitoring access, maintaining a secure network, and auditing system resources. Likewise integrates Linux, Unix, and Mac OS X workstations and servers into Active Directory, providing the basis to assign each user a unique ID for authentication, authorization, monitoring, and tracking. Likewise also provides group policies for non-Windows computers so that their security settings and other configurations can be centrally managed in the same way as Windows computers.

A key difference between consumer and business-to-business branding is the influence of selling channels, including sales reps, dealers and distributors. While many consumer products are also sold through a channel, the marketer generally reaches past the channel with branding messages, relegating the channel to the status of a local point of sale. By contrast, in many B-to-B markets, the local dealer or distributor really “owns” the end customer and can control access and communications to and from the customer.

Windows’ newest technology, the User Account Control, found in the Vista operating system has been erroneously called an additional level of security by many computer security professionals. Instead, in the hope to reduce the incidence of malware, unauthorized software installation, and unintentional system changes the User Account Control separates standard user tasks from requiring administrator level password access.
For over a decade now, RADIUS servers have been a mainstay of dial-up and VPN access control. The rather inconspicuous RADIUS server, perhaps better known as that beige, general-purpose PC collecting dust in the corner of your data center, has proved sufficient for performing basic duties like validating passwords and granting network access.
