Client application to control access to untrusted networks?



Hello,I am just looking to see if anyone can provide any experiences and/or recommendations of software to be installed on clients that is "location aware" and can enforce certain ACL's or network policies. i.e. Symantec, McAfee, Cisco?

My scenario and what I am trying to do is with my users laptops, currently we do not allow them to connect to any public wireless networks. Ofcourse this is something that I am being pressured on allowing. We would like to be able to force a VPN client to load as soon as the mobile device running Windows XP connects to a public "hot spot" and if the VPN connection fails to disconnect the system from that network. It would be an IPSEC VPN from either Cisco or Juniper.

Thank you!
