Government agencies must protect highly sensitive data and critical network infrastructure from a constant barrage of security threats. A single security breach can cost millions of dollars in damages and lawsuits, as well as have an intangible but very costly impact to the agency's reputation. Furthermore, government organizations are challenged to reach compliance with an ever changing range of regulatory requirements. Complex and evolving network environments further increase the strain on the network staff and their security budget.
Cisco Network Access Control (NAC) can help government agencies meet many of their security goals, regulatory demands and network management challenges. This paper addresses both critical infrastructure assurance and security compliance through the implementation of Network Admission Control.
