“Network Access Control” (NIC) is a modern form of firewall that defines and implements a policy that defines how to secure access to networked computers when they first try to access the network, usually by using software such as a firewall or anti-virus software. This type of control provides a method for restricting or blocking certain types of network traffic based on authorized access. While some people are familiar with this technology in its most basic form, understanding the way it works can be more complex.

The term “endpoint security” refers to the use of a token, also known as an access key, which allows network traffic to proceed according to predefined rules. An access control key can be derived from any one of several factors: a hardware device such as a firewall or network card; a digital signature on files, documents, or installed applications; a password, or a combination of these factors; or a token obtained from the client computer in an authenticated electronic format. The advantage of using an access key rather than a username or password is that an unauthorized user can easily be prevented from gaining access to the resources on a network, making it more difficult for malicious people or malicious programs to gain access to a system.

Endpoint encryption is another type of NIC technology that allows a company to establish secure sockets layer (SSL) certificates that allow network users to access data stored on a server, without exposing the private key that controls access to the secured data. This type of encryption makes it difficult for an unauthorized device to access a system without the proper authentication, preventing eavesdropping or hacking, which are common problems for network devices that are not protected by encryption. Some companies also use Byodels to provide unified access control to multiple sets of endpoints, allowing authorized devices to access information contained on a different network without compromising the security of the overall network. However, the best way to provide NIC security is to combine several types of technologies, each offering a layer of security that cannot be compromised by random attackers or hackers.
