Everything you wish your Mother Told you About Network Access Control (NAC)

  • James D. Brown, CEO StillSecure
  • Tuesday, July 16th, 12:30pm - 1:15pm

Most networks are like a Tootsie RollĀ® lollipop: hard shell on the outside, with a soft, chewy, center. Many security tools are designed to keep the bad guys off your network, by fending off any and all frontal assaults. This is a little like putting a wall around the perimeter of your property, itās never a bad idea however; it does little to keep an aggressive trespasser out. So too, the edge network defenses, which are often strong enough to hold off most intruders but the persistent attackers will keep trying to get past them.

And most networks, if you can get behind that strong wall of defenses, are nearly helpless in the face of an attack. Unfortunately, many organizations rely solely on anti-malware and host-based firewalls for endpoint protection. This stops some attacks, but not the most likely ones: spear phishing, zero-day attacks, or unauthorized port access.

So how should companies combat this? This course will cover all the ins and outs of network access control including providing tips and tricks to detect vulnerabilities, offer steps to implement a secure BYOD policy, insight on how to choose the right NAC vendor (and red flags to look out for), as well as debunk common NAC myths.
