With Soliton you can take control over the access to your network
Network Access Control relieves a lot of access worry without complexity and hassle. Whether an HR intern is accessing the network from their smartphone, a freelance web designer is connected to the system on their own laptop, or the CFO is doing a deep dive into the company cash flow: correct BYOD and employee versus non-employee access is ensured.
How does Network Access Control work?
Malware can’t get in on its own, meaning it needs to ride along with something or someone. But as this something (e.g. a printer) or someone (e.g. an employee) tries to come into the network, it first comes up against a Network Access Control solution.
This means that it runs into a virtual customs that uses pre-defined rules to check whether the user and his device comply with corporate security policies. It can tell who the user is, whether he uses a laptop, PC or tablet and whether he connects to the company network through cable, Wi-Fi or VPN. Users and devices that are cleared can come in, but only to specific network sections
The great thing is, that this all happens before any connection is made between the device and the network. It’s why this type of Network Access Control (called port-based NAC) is so effective in managing users and devices in and around your company walls. And it gets even better: today’s NAC solutions are often automated too.
