ABSTRACT: Information security has undergone a sea change in the past 10 years. Compliance mandates in the form of industry standards and Federal rules like NER, FFIEC, HIPAA/HITECH and PCI-DSS are the new normal. To stay in compliance, IT teams need to be able to keep up with updates and changes to existing mandates and be prepared for new ones. To maximize efficiency, manage risk and reduce potential violations due to compliance failure, organizations need to implement tools that apply and support multiple facets across different compliance specifications. Network Access Control (NAC) supports numerous critical security and protection functions across multiple mandates.
