Device Posture Security Explained
NordLayer’s Device Posture Security is a feature that verifies the security posture of devices before granting them access to a network. It checks various aspects of a device, including operating system versions, antivirus software, firewall settings, and more. By enforcing these checks, businesses can ensure that only devices that meet their predefined security standards can connect to their network.
Device posture checks can be customized based on the specific security requirements of a business. For example, a company may require all devices to have the latest operating system updates and antivirus definitions installed. NordLayer’s Device Posture Security can be configured to enforce these requirements and automatically block devices that fail to meet them.
