BYOD Growth Leads to NAC Magic for ForeScout
Being named a Network Access Control (NAC) leader is important to ForeScout as we are constantly striving to innovate our products to help organizations meet today’s IT challenges, such as BYOD security, head on. So I’m really excited, although not surprised, that ForeScout has been named for the second year in a row as a leader in the 2012 Magic Quadrant for Network Access Control. This honor also reaffirms what our customers and partners have been telling us – we have the best, enterprise-class NAC platform.
The report also confirmed what we’ve seen with customers, that BYOD is a driver for Network Access Control. Specifically, Gartner’s “Magic Quadrant for Network Access Control”1 stated, “the BYOD trend continues to be the major driver in NAC adoption. NAC vendors must have flexible approaches (partnerships and/or internally developed capabilities) for enforcing policies on the use of personally owned devices. Mobility and bring your own device (BYOD) trends have increased demand, and the largest NAC suppliers have seen strong increases in growth. Driven by these trends, we expect market growth of approximately 63 percent in 2013, as businesses are spending on mobile device management (MDM) and NAC as the primary means for meeting demand of personally owned smartphones and tablets, while containing risks.”
Are you looking to adopt or extend a BYOD strategy in 2013? If so, you’ll need to consider NAC as well as MDM options. Why not take ForeScout CounterACT for a test-drive? To see first hand how a best-in-class, next-generation NAC works please visit http://blog.forescout.com/landing-CounterACT-7.
