Mention Network Access Control (NAC) to some security or network operations engineers, and they just might grimace. Why? Most people still associate NAC with a set of technologies that were complicated to deploy and implement effectively.
Today, however, those nightmare assumptions are far removed from the reality. In this newly released white paper, Jon Oltsik, Senior Principal Analyst for the Enterprise Strategy Group, discusses how NAC is transforming into something more—a technology he calls Endpoint Visibility, Access, and Security or EVAS. Mr. Oltsik discusses how the NAC market has changed to reduce complexity in both deployment and usage. Through this advancement, this evolved technology has become an increasingly more critical component in securing enterprise networks. In addition, Mr. Oltsik discusses how Cisco and the Cisco Identity Services Engine (ISE) are in the best position to meet IT security challenges in terms of what EVAS should be and how it helps.
