    Our school doesn't allow access onto the network without McAfee Spyware&AV + SiteAdvisor installed. NAC is the safest and easiest implementation of making sure the students are fully protected.

    AV/Spyware for all those baddies.
    Siteadvisor/Squid for all those web requests, theres nothing illicit or illegal they can do, and thats what we want for a boarding school.

    And the benefit of McAfee it runs on all OS, just different engines. We do have quite a few Mac users and quite a few Linux users


    ....yes

    I didn't say there was anything wrong with it, I just mentioned it might be worth looking into what the uni require....

    Nor did I. Pretty much all AV companies now have compatiable engines for Linux, OS/X and Windows

    that doesn't neccesarily mean the NAC will pick it up.

    Ok, I never considered that .
