This white paper seeks to simplify the RFP process for organizations seeking the network access control vendor that best suits their security needs. While requirements vary according to each organization's unique network infrastructure, user profile, and security expectations, some features are common to the most robust NAC solutions. Most notably, the best systems leverage an organization's existing network architecture, requiring no additional investment beyond the NAC appliance to secure the network environment. These guidelines are intended to help organizations undertake the NAC vendor assessment process with a better sense of what they should realistically expect from, and know about, prospective service providers.
