Network Access Control (NAC) has become essential for enterprise networks. Changing business practices, regulatory demands and an explosive growth in vulnerabilities are driving enterprises to control who may be admitted to the corporate network and what resources - servers, applications, stored data and the like - they may access. Businesses have essentially begun proactively enforcing corporate access policies because the risks are just too high to simply trust that all users will adhere to security and access policies on their own. The changes in business operations have created security vulnerabilities that are compounded by an explosive growth in malware and breaches. Outbreaks are targeting more devices and are moving more rapidly, and the time between patches and a new threat is shrinking.
