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.

Global NAC Market: Key Market Drivers Global, 2016–2020
NAC platforms provide complete endpoint visibility which is the focal point of access, policy, performance, and security.
The ?access control? part of the NAC acronym completely differentiates NAC from other cyber technologies.
NAC is being integrated with other security platforms to enhance the efficacy of the NAC as well as perimeter network defenses.
Advanced analytics on NAC platforms as well as integrations with other security platforms provides contextual awareness.
The NAC platform is evolving to address IoT, heterogeneous networking, and multiple site locations.
Global NAC Market: Key Market Restraints, Global, 2016–2020
NAC deployments may be cumbersome in terms of either hardware equipment, operational constraints, or IT involvement.
Technology platforms aside from NAC also offer capabilities around endpoint assessment/visibility, and remediation.
From an organizational standpoint, no one said this would be easy.
Each NAC deployment is different in terms of scalability and usability—creating a unified marketing message is problematic.
