The surge in deployment of IoT devices requires advanced network security. Specifically, network operators need to be able to identify every user and device that connects to the network and then grant or limit network access appropriately. Furthermore, the network needs constant supervision to ensure ongoing safe operation with automated responses to threats as they are detected.  FortiNAC from Fortinet can provide those capabilities so that network operators can confidently know who and what is on their network. Come and see how FortiNAC can provide visibility, control, and response for your network.
