11 Reasons to Consider EVAS for Network Security
In its 2015 Annual Security Report, Cisco Systems explains the ongoing race between cyber attackers and information network defenders, and defenders arent the ones winning. Included is a look at the move away from Network Access Controls (NAC)which TechTarget defines as a method of increasing security by restricting availability of the network to endpoint devices that comply with a defined security policyto a more sophisticated method called Endpoint Visibility, Access and Security Controls, or EVAS. Here is a look at EVAS. (Photo: Fotolia)
What is EVAS?
Unlike older NAC technologies, EVAS uses more granular information to enforce access policies, such as data about user role, location, business process considerations and risk management, Cisco says. EVAS controls also help grant access beyond computers, allowing network administrators to provide access through mobile and IoT (Internet of Things) devices. (Photo: Fotolia)
