Annual penetration convinced a medium-sized credit union that they were vulnerable to attacks because unauthorized devices on their network often went undetected for long periods of time. Using NAC features of their networking equipment proved NAC had value but also showed they needed broader capabilities, integration to other security processes and better support. After evaluating several solutions, they chose Great Bay Software. The credit union is still early in the deployment cycle but has already seen security and business value, as well as learned lessons that will ease the broader roll-out.
