What is Network Access Control And Why is It important?

Network Access Control or NAC for short, is the practice of managing access to an organization's IT network through the use of software solutions, hardware solutions, and security policies to enhance the control organizations have regarding who has access to their network.

Network Access Control is critically important as it defines the scope of access a given user has in accessing an organization's network. As organizations grow, more and more users gain access to their internal network. Although this act of network access is often harmless, bad actors and malicious users try and exploit these access points as ways to gain entry to an organization's environment and gain access to that organization's sensitive information.

To mitigate the risk of these bad actors gaining access, Network Access Control implements solutions surrounding policy lifecycle management, guest network access, security posture checks and other strategies to greatly improve the overall security of the organization's network and limit the ability for bad actors to gain access.
