Microsoft will no longer support Windows XP after April 8, 2014 and will not provide security updates or patches for operating system software vulnerabilities. Devices running Windows XP after this date are not considered protected and are susceptible to malicious attacks.

Impulse will provide a Windows XP custom policy that will allow network administrators to notify remaining Windows XP users of its end-of-life status and provide information on upgrading to a supported operating system. The custom policy provides customers with maximum flexibility in that SafeConnect can initially audit the network for Window XP devices, present users with a warning and grace period to comply, or quarantine devices based on the security policy decisions of the organization.

“It’s vital that our customers know that devices with outdated operating system are accessing their network even more so than updated systems,” says Kirk Anderson, Customer Support Manager at Impulse. “We’re continually pushing updated OS fingerprints to our customers so that their systems recognize devices as soon as possible. Devices with outdated operating systems are especially vulnerable to malware, and present a very significant risk to the network.”

The end-of-life custom policy for Windows XP is available for customers through the Impulse Support Portal.

“Once again SafeConnect has saved the day by allowing us to detect the Windows XP machines currently on our network,” says David Hamwey, Network Manager at the University of Puget Sound. “It is highly recommended to restrict these machines from our network, and SafeConnect is our tool for the job. SafeConnect has proven time and time again to provide us with the security, flexibility and customizing capability we need to maintain a safe and secure network.”

SafeConnect™ is supported by the NAC industry’s most comprehensive managed service program which includes a 48-hour Service Level Agreement (SLA) for recognition of new devices, operating systems, software updates, and endpoint security software:

• Proactive 24/7 remote policy appliance monitoring.
• Problem determination and resolution ownership.
• Daily device recognition and software updates.
• Installation of all software maintenance.
• Appliance hardware maintenance, if applicable.
• Daily remote policy configuration backups.
• Overnight appliance replacement and restoration services.
• Future application version enhancements - upgrade protection.
