FortiNAC: Network Access Control

Security for Networks with IoT

FortiNAC Overview:

The proliferation of Internet of Things (IoT) devices, has made it necessary for organisations to improve their visibility into what is attached to their networks. They need to know every device and every user accessing their networks. IoT devices enable digital transformation initiatives and improve efficiency, flexibility, and optimisation. However, they are inherently untrustworthy, with designs that prioritise low-cost over security. FortiNAC provides the network visibility to see everything connected to the network, as well as the ability to control those devices and users, including dynamic, automated responses.

FortiNAC Product Details:

The IoT revolution has raised a new challenge for network owners. How can you see and protect against a myriad of devices showing up on the network? Network Access Control has come back to the forefront of security solutions to address that challenge. This technology was deployed to assist with bring-your-own-device (BYOD) policies and is now getting renewed focus as a means to safely accommodate headless IoT devices in the network. FortiNAC enables three key capabilities to secure IoT devices:

  • Network visibility to see every device and user as they join the network
  • Network control to limit where devices can go on the network
  • Automated response to speed the reaction time to events from days to seconds

Collectively, these three capabilities provide the tools that network owners need to secure a world that is embracing IoT.

FortiNAC is Fortinet’s network access control solution that enhances the Security Fabric. FortiNAC provides protection against IoT threats, extends control to third-party devices, and orchestrates automatic responses to a wide
range of networking events.
