Best Practices for Effective Network Access Control
There is often confusion between the functions and benefits of 802.1X and those of commercially available NAC solutions. 802.1X is the IEEE standard for port-based network access control that provides an authentication mechanism for devices and users attempting to connect. NAC is a widely adopted solution that provides authentication of users and devices.
Which is best for securing access to a particular network? View this paper to find out. Explore:
- Fundamentals of 802.1X and NAC technologies
- Why a combination of both is often required to provide the level of security, control and visibility needed in today’s network
