Network Access Control
Network access control is more than just protecting the functionality of your network.
The WiteSand Advantage
The challenge of managing individual silos of tools and heterogeneous hardware across multiple campuses creates network complexity as hybrid work environments exploit network vulnerability.
WiteSand takes cutting-edge NAC to the cloud for seamless network identity-based access through a single interface. The result? Better management, control, and visibility without the manual configuration of every on-premise switch and port.
Full Visibility and Endpoint Fingerprinting
Enable the discovery, classification, and monitoring of connected devices, including IoT devices such as network printers, smart card readers, or IP-enabled door locks to mitigate security threats.
Exercise complete control over pre-admission and post-admission user access to sensitive data with default deny and explicit allow policies.
Single, Centralized Dashboard
Consolidate network functions in an omniscient, intuitive interface that leverages the power of simplicity to provision your existing hardware, even across geographically dispersed locations.
The enterprise office environment includes staff employees, contractors, guests, and connected IoT devices. The implementation of zero trust as part of a comprehensive network security strategy is essential. Network Access Control (NAC) is available from many vendors, but the current market solutions suffer from these shortcomings:
- Need to install on-prem boxes at various locations
- Complicated workflows to deploy and maintain, often requiring a consulting practice
- Inability to control all aspects of segmentation
To provide a better solution, WiteSand integrated NAC with provisioning.
NAC authenticates users and devices and eventually directs the network switches to enforce the policies. An independent NAC tool may duplicate the work of discovering, maintaining inventory, attracting network flows, and SNMP scanning, while still being limited in what it can enforce in switches. With legacy systems, implementing NAC requires extensive preconfiguration of switches, as well.
WiteSand’s unique cloud-delivered intent-based NAC, with no on-prem footprint, provides easy workflows to manage worldwide locations. It is combined with the provisioning of switches and access points to achieve what is impractical with a solitary NAC solution. With the return of employees to the office, WiteSand customers are implementing our unique approach to tighten segmentation and isolation in the network. And WiteSand’s modular approach gives customers the option to consume NAC independently.
