In response to questions regarding Vidder’s Precision Access™ Trusted Access Control solution and how it compares to traditional Network Access Control (NAC) solutions we’ve created an infographic. The column on the right highlights the time to value impacts of replacing NAC with Trusted Access Control based on each row of characteristics.
As you’ll note, each characteristic has significant implications for the level of protection, complexity and required resources. Traditional network access control solutions, for example, typically require high upfront costs and single vendor switch networks, not to mention specialized skills.
The hardware-based deployment also does not scale onto IaaS or hybrid networks, requiring yet another solution to manage cloud security.
