Network Access Control (NAC) solutions are the key to full network security and thus to secure Workplace 4.0. These solutions enable employees, customers or guests to have secure access to their networks across all device types. Your network will be secure and protected from any attack because you have complete control over network access.
Insecure Network Access becomes a Security Risk
Modern forms of work and new generations of IT tools such as BYOD and IOT enable companies to mobilise unexploited potential. For example, the efficiency of employees can be increased. They are no longer tied to their workplace, but still want to work together with their colleagues, whether at home, at the team office or in the airport. To do this, they use their own devices/ clients, tailored to their needs, through which they access company infrastructure and data.
However, this flexibility also involves great risks for companies: These personal devices often contain malware, since they are rarely protected by current patches and virus scanners. In addition, open networks provide a broad contact surface for targeted attacks. Experienced attackers connect specially prepared devices to the network, redirect data traffic, steal corporate secrets, or deliberately fire at system vulnerabilities. Given the fact that four out of five attacks come from within the company, this is a precarious side effect of Workplace 4.0. When asked, “Who’s on your network?”, only very few system operators know the answer, because everyone can freely connect their personal device to the corporate network.
