Understanding Network Monitoring¶
Getting Visibility of Network and Endpoint¶
Network access control is generally established through the following steps.
- Obtain visibility of assets through network discovery and information gathering
- Classify the collected assets according to security policy and status
- Establish network access control policies for classified objects
Genian NAC collects information of various network assets through network sensors and agents and provides real time visibility to network and endpoints including:
- Network Node
- IP Address
- Switch / Port
- Wireless LAN
The network sensor and the agent monitor the management target network or the endpoint in real time and transmit the new information or the changed information to the policy server. The administrator can inquire the information of the entire management target network and the endpoint through the management console provided by the policy server.
