Network Access Control (NAC)

The IoT revolution has raised a new challenge for network owners. How can you see and protect against a myriad of devices showing up on the network? Network Access Control has come back to the forefront of security solutions to address that challenge. This technology was deployed to assist with bring-your-own-device (BYOD) policies and is now getting renewed focus as a means to safely accommodate headless IoT devices in the network.

 

 

 

FortiNAC: Network Access Control

FortiNAC provides the network visibility to see everything connected to the network, as well as the ability to control those devices and users, including dynamic, automated responses.  

FortiNAC enables three key capabilities to secure IoT devices:

  • Network visibility to see every device and user as they join the network
  • Network control to limit where devices can go on the network
  • Automated response to speed the reaction time to events from days to seconds
