I have this technologies in my enviroment DHCP(windows Server), Checkpoint, Cisco Access switch 3550, AD 2008.

I have an issue, any machine can be plugged on the network and DHCP will dish out an IP for that machine and that machine will have access to the network the only thing that can stop that person to have access is credentials in some cases by luck if they get the IP that have access to the internet automatically have access to the internet.

I need to know with the tools i have can i control this network access or we need to investigate another tool that can control access to our network.

Basically we looking at something that will make the PC usless after giving an IP only us we can start giving it privilleges up on request. Or maybe getting meseare from the DHCP server to meet certain criteria before dishing out IP adress, Please advice.
