Remember when network access control (NAC) was all the rage? Remember the competing standards from Microsoft, Cisco, and the Trusted Computing Group? Back around 2006, there were dozens of NAC products, many of which turned out to be buggy and difficult to implement.
But NAC hasn’t disappeared. In fact, NAC products have evolved and improved as well. I reviewed Enterasys/Extreme Networks Mobile IAM, Hexis Cyber Solutions NetBeat NAC, Impulse Point SafeConnect NAC, Pulse Policy Secure, and Portnox NAC. Overall, Portnox (above) was tops.
