NAC, Network Access Control, Networking
A couple of years ago the concept of network access control (NAC) was introduced and many touted it as the next shift in network security technology. A product that sits between the client and the network and ensures that devices are clean and safe and meet with the prescribed network security policy before allowing them to connect with network resources seems like a no-lose situation. As it turns out, the various implementations of NAC have had their share of issues and NAC adoption hasn’t been quite the tidal wave of acceptance that some had predicted. Check out this Computerworld.com article for more about the issues with NAC and the current state of NAC implementation.
