Network access control (NAC) is an advanced security solution that provides security against unauthorized endpoint devices including laptops, smartphones, printers and others. Network access control (NAC) protects private networks from malicious software (malware) and secures network vulnerabilities. Furthermore, network access control recognizes users with their devices and their role in the network. Moreover, to increase network security and efficiency it can be integrated with the existing security platforms.
The global network access control market is expected to witness significant growth during the forecast period (2020–2027). The growth of the network access control market is majorly attributed to a wide number of advantages offered by network access control to users. For instance, in NAC, the end user requires multi factor authentication which is a far more secure method than identifying user with IP or username and password combination method.
The major factor restraining growth of the global network access control market is high cost of implementation. Enterprises are adopting NAC solution due to its benefits, however, implementation of NAC solutions is time and money consuming. For instance, according to Coherent Market Insights analysis, NAC solutions cost around US$ 10,000 - 1000,000 depending on the requirement and company size (number of end user devices). Additionally, the company needs to provide supporting infrastructure such as IT department, network administration & security, and others. All these factors require time and money.

Global Network Access Control Market: Impact of Coronavirus (Covid-19) Pandemic
According to the International Monetary Fund Analysis, the global economy is expected to shrink by 3% in 2020 compared to 2019. Companies across the globe are struggling to sustain their businesses. Companies have started providing work from home option to employees. Network access control helps companies implement policies for controlling devices and user access to their networks. Network access control helps set policies for role, device, resource and location-based access and enforce security compliance. Hence, remote working trend is expected to fuel demand of Network access control solutions over the forecast period. However, implementation of network access solutions is money and time consuming. For instance, according to the Coherent Market Insights analysis, NAC solution requires 2-5 months implementation period after deployment of the solution. Thus, to reduce the financial strain some companies are likely to postpone its installation.
