The Evolution of Network Access Control (NAC)

September 4, 2018

The proliferation of bring-your-own-device (BYOD) policies and the Internet of Things (IoT) have both changed the shape of networks and subsequently how they must be protected. When it comes to protecting endpoints, network security strategies such as previous-generation network access control (NAC) solution are outdated. They lack the comprehensive visibility, control, and automated responses necessary to ensure secure enterprise deployments of both IoT and BYOD devices. Beyond putting an organization’s data, users, and regular business operations at risk, this defensive shortfall also exposes the enterprise to potential regulatory fines and other possible punitive damages. Learn more about how IoT and BYOD devices have impacted NAC and the evolution of the 1st, to the 2nd and 3rd generation of NAC solutions.
