PacketFence v4.0.1 Released network access control (NAC) solution

PacketFence is a fully supported, trusted, Free and Open Source network access control
(NAC) solution. Boasting an impressive feature set including a captive-portal for registration and
remediation, centralized wired and wireless management, 802.1X support, layer-2 isolation of
problematic devices, integration with the Snort IDS and the Nessus vulnerability
scanner; PacketFence can be used to effectively secure networks – from small to very large
heterogeneous networks.

Packet Fence 4.0.1  introduces a brand new modern, fast and responsive web administrative
interface. It also simplifies the definition of authentication sources in one place and allows
dynamic computation of roles. The portal profiles can now be entirely managed from the web
interface, simplifying their definitions and eliminating possible configuration mistakes. Using a
centralized caching system, configuration is now propagated instantaneously - absolutely no
downtime required!
