DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/jhcxn5/analysis_of_the) has announced the addition of the "Analysis of the Global Network Access Control (NAC) Market " report to their offering.
In 2013, network access control (NAC) entered a hot market stage. Frost & Sullivan estimates that NAC global revenues grew 40.5% year-over-year. Continuing strong demand for NAC functionality is expected over the next five years. The primary reason is that NAC is an essential last line of defense against cyber-attackers that see network-connecting endpoints as a soft target.
For vendors that have taken NAC from first- to second-generation, deep visibility into evidence of compromise and risk, and policy enforcement options in both in pre- and post-admission have advanced dramatically. Tight and out-of-the-box integration with other network security technologies have elevated NAC's position in a holistic network security defense strategy.
- NAC vendors can be lauded for improving the fundamentals of traditional aspects of NAC platforms. Devices are easier to register and place onboard onto networks; directories are easier to integrate onto RADIUS servers; and BYOD and mobile devices are easier to recognize and protect.
- NAC vendors can additionally be lauded for expanding their platforms. In recent years, three larger technological developments have made NAC more essential to network security:
- - Endpoint visibility including configuration assessment adds value to the platform and helps to provide crucial information about corporate assets, specialized devices, their location, and the security posture of endpoints.
- - NAC platforms are being bidirectionally integrated with other network and security platforms. If properly done, NAC integrated with firewall, advanced threat detection (ATD), vulnerability management (VM), security information and event management (SIEM), mobile device management (MDM), and other platforms improves the efficacy of both NAC and the integrated platforms, and allows these platforms to trigger NAC defense actions.
- - With true endpoint visibility and improved posture assessment, NAC adds context to controls. IT Directors can establish very granular policies; can build risk management into NAC; decrease the number of alerts; and anticipate potential weaknesses in the network through posture assessment and visibility into configurations.
