Cupertino, Calif. — October 3, 2012 — The market for managed firewall, virtual private network, intrusion prevention, web filtering and anti-malware services is mature and fairly saturated. Driven by business requirements for greater network resource accessibility, increased security automation and the demand to secure “bring your own device” (BYOD) and “choose your own device (CYOD), the next IT security service opportunity set for growth is network access control (NAC).
“Concerns around malware, data leakage and compliance have organizations looking for products that provide comprehensive network visibility, access control, endpoint security and policy enforcement. It may be surprising to IT professionals and service providers that next-generation Network Access Control (NAC) products can address these very difficult challenges,” said Chris Rodriquez, network security industry analyst at Frost & Sullivan. “Correspondingly, NAC solutions have become easier to implement and more effective so as to enable service providers to consider NAC to complement their security portfolios.”
A new MSP webcast, “NAC-as-a-Service: What, Why and How,” will present real-world reasoning, considerations and opportunity with regards to expanding security managed/hosted services with NAC. Led by Charles Weaver, founder of the MSPAlliance, this expert/practitioner panel will feature guest speaker Chris Rodriguez, security analyst at Frost & Sullivan and panel members from Integralis, Axial Systems, Konsultek and Forescout as they discuss:
- What is NAC, why NAC, why now
- What is the business value for the customer and service provider
- What are common NAC service, deployment and implementation options
- What are key SLA development and operational process considerations
- How to package NAC, price out the service and combine with other security services
This webinar, sponsored by Forescout, will take place on Thursday, October 18, 2012 at 12:00 PM EDT/9:00 AM PDT. Forescout invites service providers, users and media to register for the webcast at: //www.forescout.com/nacmsp. As a special bonus, registrants will receive a complimentary, in-depth Frost & Sullivan research paper on the issues presented.
