Growing awareness of sophisticated data safety issues and threats: a major market driver
Presently, the rising technological improvements have increased the threat to data security, and privacy as more and more businesses are going online. Any form of data breach will lead to system downtime, which will hamper the organizational brand equity. Along with damages to the brand name, following a data breach, there are costs related to legal actions and insurance claims. As technological maturity increases in the world, the concerns related to data security and privacy also increases. A major challenge in the market is to keep the enterprise IT system safe and its data secure.

Commoditization of NAC solutions: emerging market trend
NAC is expected to be moderately commoditized in the upcoming years owing to the gradual evolution in its features and development of the end-consumer demand. This trend is expected to drive the market across and beyond the forecast period. It is early to state if NAC is going to be completely replaced, however, it cannot be denied that the scope of NAC is continually evolving. In this era of hyper-connectivity and enhanced network threats, there is opportunity for NAC to alter and evolve. The core capability of network security will enable the capabilities of a NAC solution to be bundled together with other network solutions and be offered as a complete end-to-end network management suite by players. These NAC solutions are expected to be unified and bundled with a firewall, anti-virus, or other integrated bundles.
According to a senior analyst at Technavio for research on IT security, “The contemporary office environment is a heterogeneous setting owing to the customized and hybrid software deployments across departments and processes. There are a diverse set of networked systems and devices. On a diverse set of networked systems and multiple platforms, a NAC acts as a point of contact for access to files and information. The scope of NAC is expected to increase from only network security to end-to-end network management owing to increase in competition and product development. NAC is expected to be an essential component in the comprehensive network software systems.”
