With the growing number of devices on a network and a decreasing level of control over these devices due to trends such as Bring-Your-Own-Device (BYOD), companies must now ensure endpoint compliance as part of endpoint management.
Network Access Control has evolved from simply controlling network access, into a more advanced use case of mitigating risks posed by vulnerable and compromised endpoints on today’s dynamic networks. It has emerged as a critical element of an enterprise-wide network security posture that bridges the gap between the SOC and NOC, by eliminating error-prone manual processes via security automation and orchestration.
As the number of devices on a wired and wireless network continues to grow with initiatives such as Bring-Your-Own-Device (BYOD), so does the network attack surface for cyber criminals. Enterprises must be ready to combat the influx of cyber-threats by gaining complete network visibility, addressing vulnerabilities, implementing network segmentation, and responding autonomously to contain compromised endpoints.
