Genians NAC Listed In Frost & Sullivan’s Global NAC Market Report
North Andover, Mass. – May 14, 2020 – Genians, an industry leader of Next-Gen Network Access Control (NAC) solutions for the IoT era, announced it has been named a representative vendor in Frost & Sullivan’s Global Network Access Control Market, Forecast to 2024.
This report finds that the proliferation of the Internet of Things (IoT), the convergence of information technology (IT) and operation technology (OT), and digital transformation to the cloud are rapidly demanding NAC capabilities. At the same time, the report indicates that the complexity of 802.1X deployment, surging diversity of IoT devices, and increasing NAC solution costs are the biggest obstacles facing any organizations trying to adapt NAC to secure their network.
“To overcome the challenges, non-disruptive network sensing technology, dynamic policy enforcement, interoperability, flexible deployment options via on-prem and Cloud, and affordable pricing are necessary,” said Tony Massimini, Senior Industry Analyst at Frost & Sullivan who recognizes Genians as a leading NAC vendor able to deliver next-gen NAC capabilities without disturbing existing infrastructure.
According to Frost & Sullivan NAC customers are accelerating their migration to the cloud for easier and faster deployment, energy and space savings, scalability, and lower hardware maintenance costs.
Genian’s CTO Kyeyeon Kim notes, “As Massimini indicates, traditional approaches, such as legacy device fingerprinting, 802.1x, switch integration, and the use of agents is no longer sufficient to meet the demands of the IoT era. However, we at Genians have successfully renovated our enterprise-grade NAC offering by leveraging Cloud technology for businesses of all sizes. Additionally, we consolidate essential cybersecurity features to manage IP/MAC, SSID, Users, Endpoint Configuration, and Logs & Alerts to ensure secure connections end-to-end. And Genians’ Device Platform Intelligence is changing the cybersecurity paradigm by delivering the entire lifecycle of all secure, connected devices holistically.”
“As we have supported over 1,600 customers across multiple countries and various industries since 2005, we have developed the most advanced NAC technology, meeting the needs of highly-practical use cases. It’s time to share this technology and our experience with those organizations struggling with technical challenges and budgetary issues in this unprecedented time,” says Genians’ CEO Dong-Bum Lee.
Highlights of Genians Next-Gen NAC capabilities within the Frost & Sullivan report include:
- Device Platform Intelligence (DPI) addresses not only technology-specific matters (e.g. the most accurate platform name) but also identifies both business (e.g. EOL/EOS) and risk-related contexts (e.g. CVE)
- Layer 2-based non-disruptive Network Sensing Technology empowered by DPI
- Node grouping for dynamic classification and policy enforcement
- Multi-Layered Dynamic Network Access Control achieved by orchestrating 802.1x, DHCP, ARP enforcement, TCP reset, Agent-based and Agentless
- Vendor agnostic architecture integrates a wide range of IT security and business solutions (Firewall, VPN, IDS/IPS, VM, MDM, SIEM, APT, DLP, CRM, ERP, etc.) via native protocols
- Flexible deployment options: On-premise, Cloud-managed, and NAC as a Service
- Pragmatic implementation: Basic (Network Surveillance), Professional (Network Access Control), and Enterprise (Network Automation)
