Open source software company Inverse released the version 1.8.5 of 
PacketFence.

PacketFence is a fully supported, Free and Open Source network access 
control (NAC) system that runs on Linux. It can be used to effectively 
secure networks - from small to very large heterogeneous networks. 
PacketFence has been deployed in production environments where thousands 
of users are involved - on wired and wireless networks.

PacketFence provides an impressive list of supported features. Among 
them, there are :

    * Registration of network components through a captive portal
    * Automatic isolation, if desired, of unwanted devices such as Apple 
iPod, Sony PlayStation, wireless access points and more
    * Instant stopping of computer worms or virus propagation
    * Blocking of attacks on your servers or other network components
    * Compliance for computers present on your network (software 
installed, particular configurations, etc.)

PacketFence is an unobtrusive solution that works with equipment from 
many vendors (wired or wireless) such as Amer, Cisco, Nortel, 
Hewlett-Packard, Enterasys, Extreme Networks, Accton/Edge-corE, 3Com, 
D-Link, Intel, Dell and many more.
