LONDON, May 16, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Network Access Control (NAC) Global Market : Comprehending the Endpoint and Network Orchestration
In 2015, network access control (NAC) proved to be among the most successful cyber defense platforms as NAC vendors experienced 30% YoY growth in revenues for appliances and related services. Frost & Sullivan anticipates continuing demand for NAC through 2020. NAC is a technology that can be used to provide immediate mitigation from cyber threats by changing access privileges for suspect or infected endpoints. Next generation NAC provides visibility into what devices are on the network, and then adds contextual awareness about endpoints to assist in incident investigations. One important feature NAC has is network orchestration which is bidirectional communication between NAC and other cyber security defenses enhancing the efficacy of each.
Network access control (NAC) is a foundational network security defense. The premise of network access control is the security principal where end users/endpoints can be blocked, quarantined, or redirected to different parts of a network if there is an Indication of Compromise (IOC).
o NAC also provides endpoints visibility after data passes a cyber security perimeter, but before data is enriched and taken into storage by a security information and event management (SIEM) appliance.
o Rules written to end user devices, and role-based access are critical to the overall health of the network. End user devices and endpoints are ultimately the place where intrusions to networks matter, and the last chance to defend or detect a network breach.
• Frost & Sullivan estimates NAC vendors sold $ million of NAC appliances, NAC related services, and NAC software as a service (NAC as SaaS) for the base year of the study 2015. This represented an improvement of % over 2014.
• For 2016, much the same is expected. Forecasted NAC revenues are expected to be $ million reflecting % year-over-year (YoY) growth.
• In 2015, the average selling price (ASP) for a small to medium-sized business (SMB) thru enterprise-sized NAC (1?9,999 endpoints) is $ . By 2020, the same deployment will be worth $ .
• The ASP for a large enterprise NAC in 2015 is $ . By 2020, the same deployment is $ .
• All types of NAC deployments are likely to prosper from now through the end of the forecast period (2020) as 802.1X platforms, non 802.1X NAC deployments, virtual, and cloud-based NAC as SaaS each address distinct networking needs.
