Network Access Management
What is a Network Access Management (NAC) solution?
Network access management solution is a solution used to manage the connection of endpoint devices by collecting multiple sources of information from network devices in the system to identify and automatically classify devices. user according to the organization’s access policy.
With the ability to integrate with multiple manufacturers of wired and wireless network equipment, the solution enables flexible integration even in enterprise environments with different network devices belonging to different manufacturers .
Along with that, the solution supports many methods to determine the type of device to help system administrators make policies to control device classification and, ultimately, flexible network access decentralization.
The importance of Network Access Management solutions:
Enterprises carry out digital transformation with the goal of applying technology to business operations and development, in parallel, one of the most used technologies is the Internet of Things (IoT), using IoT as a The connection platform allows devices in the network system to exchange information directly with each other. However, this will lead to the problem of how to control IoT devices (printers, cameras, door systems, timekeeper …) to participate in the network, moreover, most IoT devices do not It is designed for security, making it easy for hackers to attack and gain control.
In addition, the network is an open and easily connected environment, defining categories and ultimately decentralizing access to end devices is essential to ensure the target of each group of devices. after the network connection is assigned right to access the network system for the enterprise.
Network access management solutions help solve the above problems, help businesses improve security for accessing the network and provide the ability to identify which devices are connecting to the network.
Some key features of Network Access Management (NAC) solution
- Vision: Identify end devices connecting to the network, identify and classify groups of devices after accessing the network. Provides an interface for automatic registration of guest devices when accessing the network.
- Control: Automatically assigns access rights according to classified groups of devices, the network now has the ability to automatically switch the connection for each group of terminals according to the policy set by the enterprise.
- Response: Automatic isolation blocks terminals at the network stage when they receive information from security components in the system that the corresponding terminal is having unusual access or access. into harmful content.
