Have you been compromised by ransomware?  Has your network been breached by uncontrolled wired or wireless access?  By now, most IT professionals are familiar with the basic concepts of network access control.  Several vendor partners offer robust solutions for this security need.  As is the case for most security needs, the demand for strict access control measures continues to grow exponentially across all verticals.  Numerous companies, ranging from local to global, have found themselves to be victims of malicious attacks originating from inadequate network access controls.  Simply put, many organizations have little or no way to detect and prevent malicious attacks from guests and patrons physically connecting to internal networks providing access to sensitive data.
