In the fields of physical security and information security, access control is the selective restriction of access to a place or other resource.
Antivirus or anti-virus software (often abbreviated as AV), sometimes known as anti-malware software, is computer software used to prevent, detect and remove malicious software.
Bring your own device (BYOD)—also called bring your own technology (BYOT), bring your own phone (BYOP), and bring your own PC (BYOPC)—refers to the policy of permitting employees to bring personally owned mobile devices (laptops, tablets, and smart phones) to their workplace, and to use those devices to access privileged company information and applications.
Cisco NAC Appliance, formerly Cisco Clean Access (CCA), is a network admission control (NAC) system developed by Cisco Systems designed to produce a secure and clean network environment—the NAC appliance is however still referred to as Cisco Clean Access by some in the industry or Universities such as University of Alabama in Huntsville and Cleveland Clinic.
Cisco Systems, Inc. is an American multinational technology company headquartered in San Jose, California, that designs, manufactures, and sells networking equipment.
The Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) is a standardized network protocol used on Internet Protocol (IP) networks for dynamically distributing network configuration parameters, such as IP addresses for interfaces and services.

IEEE 802.1X is an IEEE Standard for port-based Network Access Control (PNAC).
Microsoft Windows (or simply Windows) is a metafamily of graphical operating systems developed, marketed, and sold by Microsoft.
Network Access Control (NAC) is an approach to computer security that attempts to unify endpoint security technology (such as antivirus, host intrusion prevention, and vulnerability assessment), user or system authentication and network security enforcement.
Network Access Protection (NAP) is a Microsoft technology for controlling network access of a computer, based on its health.
A network packet is a formatted unit of data carried by a packet-switched network.
A network switch (also called switching hub, bridging hub, officially MAC bridge) is a computer networking device that connects devices together on a computer network, by using packet switching to receive, process and forward data to the destination device.
PacketFence is an open-source network access control (NAC) system which provides the following features: registration, detection of abnormal network activities, proactive vulnerability scans, isolation of problematic devices, remediation through a captive portal, 802.1X, wireless integration and User-Agent / DHCP fingerprinting.
A personal firewall is an application which controls network traffic to and from a computer, permitting or denying communications based on a security policy.
A router is a networking device that forwards data packets between computer networks.
A vulnerability scanner is a computer program designed to assess computers, computer systems, networks or applications for weaknesses.
