  • Network Access Control does a great job of identifying unmanaged devices on the network and "quarantining" them.
  • The inventory feature of CounterAct is a handy place to see what version of applications are running on which machines on our network.
  • Policies can be very intricate.
  • Policies ability to be very intricate also adds complexity to the building of the policy.
  • Initial configuration is complex
  • Uses SMB1 which is a vulnerable version - needs to be updated asap.
