North America houses the major players of the NAC market such as Cisco Systems Inc, ForeScout Technologies Inc, Trustwave Holdings Inc, Bradford Network Inc, Pulse Secure LLC and others.
Cisco has partnered with experts in the anti-virus, patch management, and personal firewall fields to extend the NAC solution to address all areas of concern which will further boost the NAC market in the North American region and other regions as well Additionally, the existing datacenter facilities in North America are also witnessing expansions, which will approximately increase the usage of Network Access control Solutions and boost the market. For instance, in March 2019 Cyxtera has, announced the expansion of its datacenters in Phoenix, Silicon Valley, New York, Metro Atlanta, and Toronto, which will set to boost the NAC solution during the given forecast period.
Drivers – Network Access Control Market
- Continuous development of hardware and software NAC Solutions
NAC uses the network infrastructure to enforce security policy compliance on all devices seeking to access network computing resources; this results the limited damage from emerging security threats such as viruses, worms, and spyware. There by, the continuous development of hardware and software NAC solutions will further boost the NAC market during 2020-2025.
- Rapid increase in Cyber Attack
Cyber Security industry is growing every day due to rapid increase in cyber-attacks. For instance, 100,000 groups in approximately 150 countries and more than 400,000 machines were infected by the Wannacry virus in 2017, which accounted to losses of around $4 billion. In 2017, cybercrime costs accelerated with organizations spending nearly 23 percent more than 2016 — on average about $11.7 million. There by companies such as Cisco and others has been launching advance network access solutions for the security of data centers. The shift increase in the cyber-attacks and increasing investments towards preventive solutions is set to boost the NAC market from 2020 to 2025.
Challenges – Network Access Control Market
- High cost for the successful implementation of NAC
NAC Solution faces monetary challenges due to high installation and implementation cost. For instance, network access control implementation cost from $100,000 to 1000,000 and 18 months of time duration for the complete implementation. Apart from these, there are various requirements for the successful implementation of NAC which include settlement of IT department, including desktop support staff, network administrators and security people and others. There by, these requirement will further add up cost for the solution and may likely to hinder the growth of the market.
