What's the answer to managing access to your network while improving performance and ensuring proper security? The answer could be as simple as 1, 2, 3 -- or more specificaly, N, A, C. In today's episode, we explain three simple reasons why you need to consider network access control.
What's going on everybody. My name is Danny. Welcome to the Wi-Fi Minute. Today's topic, three simple reasons you need to consider Network Access Control. Okay. Let's put 60 seconds up on the clock and let's go.
One: Better Management of Your End Users
Network Access Control enables you to define who your end users are, students, guests, employees. What type of device they're using, laptops, smartphones etc, and where the user device is accessing the network from. This type of context helps you to improve performance and security, by delivering the exact resources that everyone and everything needs. Nothing more and nothing less.
Two: Better Support of BYOD
By enforcing customized policies such as which types of devices can access my network through BYOD, and who can access my network using BYOD, Network Access Control finally helps you answer the question of how do I safely manage the devices I don't own. You can also integrate with additional third party solutions like MDM and firewalls, to further fortify your security platform.
Your financial flexibility is always a factor when it comes to your wireless platform. NAC can actually help you lower your cost by consolidating the number of different systems or appliances you have, automating device on-boarding, reducing help desk tickets, and minimizing potential security breaches.
These are just three ways Network Access Control will have a positive impact on your wireless platform. Down in the description, I've included a link to our wireless network design kit, which will provide you with everything you need to know before you deploy a large scale wireless network.
