Network Access Control (NAC) Market Size, Industry Analysis Report, Regional Outlook, Growth Potential, Competitive Market Share & Forecast, 2020 - 2026
Report ID: GMI2755
Network Access Control (NAC) Market size is driven by the increasing malware attacks on enterprises. The evolving hacking strategies and antiquated security technologies across various business enterprises and government agencies have attributed to the rise in malware attacks. Furthermore, emerging technology trends, such as bring your own devices (BYOD), have further fostered the growth of NAC market. The widespread adoption of mobile devices along with faster data transfer speeds and advancements in mobile security platforms have facilitated the adoption of BYOD platforms.
Moreover, compatibility of NAC with operating systems, such as Microsoft, Android, and Mac OS, have improved the market demand. For instance, Microsoft’s Intune offers interoperability with its network access control partners to help enterprises secure corporate data when devices try to access company resources. Similarly, Nordic Aviation Capital has adopted Citrix’s solution XenApp & NetScaler Unified Gateway to establish a flexible cloud-based solution that would allow its employees fast & secure access to company resources whether on campus or out in the field.
The key restraints in the market are high capital requirement and the need for appropriate administrative policies. The other challenges associated with network access control deployment are time delay during the phased-out approach and full lockdown during the accelerated approach. Furthermore, the lack of complete control to identify user access & guest access affects the market.
Hardware, software, and services are the major components of the NAC market. The hardware component reports information to central console which in turn can enforce the policy. The deployment of hardware products has limited risks and hence, they hold the majority share in the market. The software products enforce pre-admission and post-admission policies on the end-stations to provide them access to the network.
The various services provided across the NAC market are installation, training, integration, professional services, and support & maintenance. The high security requirements such as role-based network access and endpoint isolation across various financial institutions and corporations have driven the demand for services.
NAC solutions can be deployed into on-premise and cloud-based models. The on-premise is also known as infrastructure-based, which connects the user to a wired network and allows access to its resources. The cloud-based model also known as appliance-based model provides a role-based access control & authentication to its users through LAN, VAN or other wireless connections.
NAC systems have been used in various industry verticals including financial services, government, manufacturing, telecommunication, IT, healthcare, businesses, insurance, entertainment, media, retail, and transportation sectors. Financial service is estimated to account for the majority share in the market due to the increasing adoption of NAC solutions across banks, insurance, and other financial institutes to control security and access control from a centralized location. Furthermore, the system also offers high scalability, flexibility, and local intelligence to protect against communication failures.
North America region holds the largest market share in the NAC market. This is attributed to the early adoption of smartphones and IoT technologies. The growing use of IoT in manufacturing and retail coupled with the burgeoning connected car market has driven the demand for endpoint security technologies using NAC platforms. Asia Pacific and Latin America regions are estimated to grow substantially during the forecast period due to the increasing adoption of cloud-based technologies and social media platforms in developing countries including India, Brazil, and China.
The major vendors in the market are Key Innovator, Portnox, Pulse Secure, LLC., Auconet, Avaya, Bradford Networks, Hewlett Packard Enterprise Development LP, Impulse Point, Cisco Systems, Extreme Networks, and ForeScout Technologies. The companies operating in the market space focus on forming partnerships to gain a competitive edge over their competitors. For instance, in January 2018, Portnox launched its global partnership program Portnox Sphere. This program offers Portnox’s network visibility & access control solutions to a wide range of businesses and controlling access for more customers. Similarly, in December 2016, Bradford Networks, a provider of network security solutions partnered with select Managed Security Service Providers (MSSP) to deliver business-class security controls as a managed offering that will accelerate the adoption of mobile and IoT endpoints.
