Hi, If Network Access Control (NAC) is more stringent than VPN, then yes, that would likely be what we have. My cursory reading on NAC seems to indicate it would give admins fine grain control on access. Machines that don't pass scans get put in quarantine until they are fixed. Pulse Secure not supporting CAC authentication will prevent me from using a Linux system to telework from conferences and at home. The WiFi system requires CAC for two-factor authentication, so that will be an issue I'll have to work on my own since Ubuntu's generic WiFi login interface won't work. Thanks for the work-hour quotes of 50 for setup and 2 for annual maintenance. I really appreciate your rapid feedback. Over time, I hope to find and engage the right folks to enable Linux telework.
