Does your business need Network Access Control? 10 questions to ask

Mobile devices are an indispensable tool in our professional lives today. With an endless amount of new applications and devices coming out every year, your employees, clients, guess, etc. expect to be able to access your network to use their devices.

With many IT departments being outpaced by user demand, they need an answer to help them keep up.

With the right network access control solution in place you can successfully support this need and go beyond access policy enforcement and support a richer, more dynamic user experience.

However, the question still remains, how do you know if your enterprise wireless network actually needs to implement network access control?

To help you make the right decision, here are 10 simple questions you need to ask yourself to determine if an NAC solution is right for your business or organization.

Question 1: 

Has your business or another business in your same industry recently suffered a security breach?

Question 2: 

Are a large number of your end-users (employees, guests, students etc.) using mobile devices?

Question 3:

Do you hire contractors, or work collaboratively with partners/agencies?

Question 4:

Do you have frequent and large numbers of guests on your environment?

Question 5:

Do you have distributed offices?

Question 6:

Are you planning on moving into a new building, or consolidating sites?

Question 7:

Have you recently been or are you about to be involved in a merger or acquisition?

Question 8:

Are you a public sector organization that is being encouraged by the government to share resources?

Question 9:

Are you in an industry where new regulations or legislation have recently been or are about to be introduced, which relates to information security or operational risk?

Question 10:

Do you have a multi-vendor network?

If you answered “yes” to one or more of the questions above, it’s probably time to seriously consider deploying a network access control solution.
