CSO - "In 2013, we estimated that the NAC market was 350 million dollars, which was an increase of about 55-percent over 2012," says Lawrence Orans, Research Vice President, Gartner, Inc. According to Orans, Gartner expects that growth to slow in 2014, with an estimated increase of 45-percent over 2013 numbers. Burgeoning enterprise BYOD concerns have been the major drivers in that growth, says Orans. NAC vendor ForeScout is integrating its capabilities with those of Invincea in order to further abate those concerns.

A new BYOD protection approach combines ForeScout's CounterACT NAC technology with Invincea's FreeSpace containerization technology in order to better protect corporate data. In this partnership, ForeScout offers what it describes as a control fabric for security and an architecture- and process- based approach to protecting BYOD, based on industry standards rather than isolated proprietary technologies. The control fabric works in tandem with network junctions such as firewalls and switches, where it collects data and controls / initiates the network's response to attacks and infections.
