Cupertino, Calif. — November 7, 2012 — BYOD and its flood of unknown, unmanaged, unsecured devices onto corporate networks introduce the risk of data leakage, breaches and malware. At the same time, companies are struggling (as they have for years) to maintain high levels of endpoint compliance (for endpoints that they own) and introduce as much automation as they can to lower operational costs. All of this activity has led more enterprises than ever to implement network access control (NAC) solutions. While some may recall NAC offerings from years back that were cumbersome and hard to implement, today’s modern NAC solutions are very easy to deploy and manage.
The webcast “Why NAC? Why now?” will take a deep dive into NAC and the considerations and opportunity with regards to deploying NAC within the large enterprise. Panelists with in-the-trenches experience from Hadassah Medical Center, Queens College, Atrion Networking and Forescout Technologies will present proven process and technology considerations that InfoSec professionals can put to immediate use. Topics covered will include:
- How NAC has evolved over the years
- Real-world issues, considerations and operational impact
- The importance of combining NAC, MDM and other technical controls under one set of policies
- Why companies deploy NAC when they have zero interest in blocking devices from the network
The SC Magazine webinar, sponsored by Forescout, will take place on Wednesday, November 28, 2012 at 11:00 a.m. PT/ 2:00 p.m. ET. IT professionals can register for the webcast at: //www.forescout.com/whynac. As a special bonus, registrants will receive a complimentary, in-depth IDC white paper on the issues presented.
