If your business is pursuing a bring-your-own-device (BYOD) strategy, effective network management and security becomes critical. How can you ensure resources are accessible to staff who need them but not vulnerable to attack? The answer could lie in an often-maligned technology: network access control (NAC).

As Gartner analyst Lawrence Orans pointed out during a recent presentation in Sydney, NAC first found favour around 2003 as a potential means of dealing with worm-based network attacks. While relatively few businesses adopted it for that reason, it does have potential as a means of securing business apps and content in a non-device dependent fashion.
