NAC Continues To Struggle

Tony Bradley Tony Bradley Profile: Tony Bradley

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.

    Turn this into a physical analogy. No one wants to have to go through 10 steps just to get into their house. Treating your employees like a prisoner doesn't say "we value you" at all. There are plenty of other ways to do that, without resorting to oppressive network access control on the end-user layers.
