Open source or commercial software to check for updates and up-to-date AV products.

I have seen a couple places where they have a radius server or some server that CHECKS for up-to-date AV package, and a fully updated/patched system in order to even be granted a connection.

Please give me the skinny on such products!!!

Just looking for the software package that sans these systems.... I already have plans for VLANS.

Cisco calls it Network Admission Control (NAC) and Microsoft calls it Network Access Protection (NAP).

Lots of enteprise class Cisco devices do their version and Windows 2008 or later can do Microsoft's version.

I need to perform an all inclusive Windows update and AV update prior to being granted network access.

Will either a NAP or a NAC do both?
