Keep your network safe from malware, recently terminated employees, or attack by remotely disabling a host's network cards. NIC Padlock allows an administrator to temporarily or permanently disable a remote host's network interface cards (NIC’s). NIC Padlock is a great solution when you need to ensure that a remote host is disconnected from your network immediately.
In many organizations it is not uncommon to have several virtual computers running on a single server or workstation, using virtualization software.
It may not always be clear on which physical hardware a virtual computer is running. If you encounter any of the above scenarios occurring on one of your virtual host’s, NIC Padlock can provided the quickest way to take a virtual system off your network either temporarily or permanently, without disrupting the connectivity of any other virtual system.
