We are a solution provider and this is one of the products that we implement for our clients. My role is security and I deal with products to protect data centers. FortiNAC makes up part of the security solution in a data center.
I was certified in FortiNAC (Part of Fortinet-NSE6) last year and I've personally implemented FortiNAC in three organizations. We work as a team with people who have expertise in different areas and Vendors and have exposure to different infrastructures. FortiNAC scans your network to discover every user, application, and device (IOT), With up to 18 different techniques, it can then profile each element based on observed characteristics and responses for granular visibility - We then apply state-based control(eth0 VLAN switching) and Policy based control rules for access control and response. Anyone (Domain users, Contractors, guests, etc) wanting to connect to the network has to be accessed by the NAC. Users come in at different times and some may be working from branches or home through a VPN and they will be authenticated in the same way with different privileges on the Network. So it has to run 24/7. It's authenticating users all the time. We are gold partners with FortiNac.
The solution is generally used for compliance and other related items such as network visibility.
I'm a senior network architect and our company is a reseller of FortiNAC. This is a new product for me and we'll be starting implementation shortly. We've been testing the product and I'm just finishing the course. I'll be implementing for our client which is a medium-size company.
The primary use case is that we are using it as a network access control (NAC), preventing external devices from plugging into the network or foreign computers from joining the network. We are using the latest version.
