RE: How can I deny VPN access based on Virus DAT

My understanding of the best way to go about this would be to allow the VPN
connection but not allow access to network resources until the user clears a
network quarantine (AV defs, patches, etc). As far as implementation or
actual devices go, I'm only familiar with some of the Symantec h/ware
appliances for this.

How are you going to verify that without already establishing the VPN?
Do you want to rely on the client telling you "yep, ev'rything's just
fine"? Why would $MALWARE refrain from forging that claim?
