Cisco, Aruba..and plenty of other vendors all have commercial offerings in
the NAC space. Most have eg dissolvable clients and the like but all of
them have weaknesses , either some platforms have little or no support, or
they require certain other technology to be adopted too (eg the vendors
other appliances for DNS or proxy) and their particular radius server,  per
client licence or only works with 2 of the common browsers

It's all rather a mess
