NETWORK ACCESS CONTROL
Network Access Control (NAC) is a technology that helps organizations protect their networks from malicious actors. It allows network administrators to control who can access the network, what resources they can access, and which devices are allowed in the network. NAC also ensures that only authorized users and devices can access confidential information and other sensitive data on the network. By putting these rules in place, organizations can better protect themselves from potential threats such as malware or unapproved activities. Additionally, Network Access Control solutions provide an additional layer of security by monitoring user activity on a continuous basis so any suspicious behavior can be flagged quickly. This way, potential problems are identified before they become more serious issues. Ultimately, NAC is an essential tool for ensuring network security and preventing cyber attacks. Together with other security measures, Network Access Control can help organizations ensure their networks remain safe and secure.

What to consider?
- User AuthenticationEnsuring that only authorized users have access to the network is essential for maintaining security. NAC can provide user authentication, allowing network administrators to easily track who is accessing what and when.
- Device AuthorizationAllowing only approved devices into the network can help prevent unauthorized access of sensitive data or malware infiltration. NAC solutions can authorize devices based on various criteria such as software version, device type, etc., ensuring that only secure and compliant devices are allowed in the network.
- Activity MonitoringNetwork Access Control solutions also allow organizations to monitor user activities so suspicious behavior can be quickly identified and addressed before it becomes an issue. This way, organizations can ensure their networks remain safe from potential threats.
- Automated EnforcementNAC also provides automated enforcement, allowing network administrators to quickly respond to security threats and other issues. This helps organizations stay proactive in their approach to network security, ensuring that their networks remain safe and secure.
