Network access control (NAC) is a foundational element to network security defense. The principal of NAC is that devices are provided policy-based access to parts of the network, and blocked, quarantined, or redirected if found non-compliant with security policies. Information Technology (IT) and Operational Technology (OT) convergence offers benefits of improved efficiencies and exposes previously isolated systems to cyber attacks. As IT and OT converge, the benefits of NAC device visibility, understanding, and control are rising in importance.
