Cisco have a new product that does just this - Cisco Security Agent.

Thoughts, comments?
This is the Okena product, after Cisco's acquisition.  They were previously

These are "bolt-ons", which give capabilities management to legacy OS's  - 
Winders and Solaris.  Similar to LIDS or the "St. Jude" model :
