Pros: so effective in finding out non-compliance devices based on the policies that are defined and immediate remediation is applied right away

Cons: for some reason, log in to customer support portal is just a complete mess. you got 2 sets of login, one to open up a support case and one to download software updates....

Overall: the best nac out there, no doubt about it...but you have to pay the price...this device is not cheap!!!

Pros: The solution provides clear visibility and control to all devices on the network. It also a lot more flexible than other nac solutions.

Cons: Solution is pretty difficult to deploy and configure. They also do not have a Mac management client available. This forced Mac users to use a windows VM to access the management console.

Overall: Visibility and control

Excellent NAC solution that adds visibility

Pros: CounterACT offers NAC solution without an Agent required to see all devices as soon as they connect to the network. Because of the agentless approach it adds visibility of all devices and with 1 of several management configurations, CounterACT can provide visibility into process, programs, ports and many other criteria.

Cons: Currently ForeScout does not have a Cloud deployable solution or an MSP solution for multi-tenancy that I am aware of. I do believe it is in the works though.
