How Does Network Access Control Enhance the Security of Today's Modern Organization?
Today, organizations face growing challenges in keeping their private networks safe and secure from external threats. As employees grow more dependent on mobile phones and other network-connected devices, organizations are now tasked with building more sophisticated security strategies to ensure these outside devices meet certain security protocols to safely access an organization's private network.
Network Access Control or NAC utilizes a variety of security solutions to keep unauthorized users from accessing a private network and ensuring that the external devices that do access a private network meet a certain standard of device security to minimize the risk of these devices facilitating a cyber attack. To do so, NAC strategies often utilize multi-factor authentication and verifies that the device in question meets certain security standards and anti-intrusion software. In implementing these strategies, organizations can effectively minimize their threat exposure while still maintaining business continuity by ensuring employees and other users can access the internal network.
