Leveraging FortiNAC to Strengthen Compliance with Industry Regulations

Leveraging FortiNAC to Strengthen Compliance with Industry Regulations

What is NAC- Network Access Control ?

Network access control (NAC) and is also called network admission control, is a method of strengthen the security of a proprietary network by restricting the availability of network resources to endpoint devices that comply with a defined security policy.

So as per the NAC, the end devices are being authenticated to access the network. Hope you understand the use of the NAC- Network Access Control. While the computer is being checked by a installed software agent, it can only access resources that can remediate any issues. 

Once the policy is met, the computer is able to access network resources and the Internet, within the policies defined within the NAC system. NAC is mainly used for endpoint health checks, but it is often tied to Role-based Access. Access to the network will be given according to the profile of the person and the results of a posture/health check.

What is FortiNAC ?

FortiNAC is a Network Access Control (NAC) solution offered by Fortinet, a leading cybersecurity company. It provides comprehensive visibility and control over all devices and users that connect to the network, including IoT devices, BYOD devices, and guest devices.

FortiNAC provides real-time device discovery, classification, and profiling, enabling network administrators to identify all devices on the network and enforce access policies based on device type, user identity, and other contextual factors. It also offers continuous monitoring and enforcement of network access policies to ensure that only authorized devices and users are allowed on the network.
