Network Access Control (NAC)

Control the security of devices that attach to your network. Enforce policies and reduce risks from non-compliant devices that are trying to access your network.

IoT and BYOD increase access points and vulnerabilities in your network. Network Access Control solutions provide you the visibility and control you need. Develop, implement, and enforce security  policies for controlling device and user access. Identify and stop threats based on security polices from mobile devices as they attempt to access your network.
