By using the word "still" it implies that SecureACS can do this also, but as 
far as I know, unless something has changed recently, cisco equipment only 
supports this feature with TACACS+ and not RADIUS.. Comparing a SecureACS 
TACACS+ server with FreeRADIUS is comparing apples and oranges...

FreeRADIUS is generally MUCH more powerfull than SecureACS in its RADIUS 
functionality.. FreeRADIUS, doe not however support TACACS+ at present..
