Network Access Control Market Sales is expected to grow USD 14.5 Billion by 2032

The network access control market size was valued at USD 2.9 Billion in 2023 and is expected to have a market size of USD 14.5 Billion by 2032 with a CAGR of 19.5%. 

Network Access Control security technology enables organizations to regulate and monitor the access of devices to a network. It ensures that only authorized and compliant devices can connect to the network, thus reducing the risk of data breach. The rising incidence of cybercrimes across the globe is leading to rising demand for network access control solutions across various verticals. To safeguard national security and reduce financial losses, governments and financial institutions are among the early adopters of NAC solutions.

The network access control market experienced growth in the recent past fueled by the rising network infrastructure security concerns. Enterprises are increasingly embracing the consumerization of IT strategy, aiming to minimize capital expenditure by permitting employees to utilize their personal computers or laptops to access corporate networks and data. While this approach enhances overall productivity, it also brings forth significant apprehensions regarding network access and security, particularly concerning verifying user authenticity within enterprises.

According to Verizon’s 2023 DBIR, approximately 19% of data breaches stem from internal actors, including full-time employees, independent contractors, interns, and other personnel. Moreover, such breaches result in financial losses and data compromise for companies. IBM’s Data Breach Report for 2023 reveals that the average global cost of a data breach amounts to approximately USD 4.5 million.

Network access control offers dynamic endpoint intelligence, empowering IT teams to make informed decisions, adjust policies, and take action through a centralized console. Its policies can be applied to verify the authorization of users/devices attempting to access or currently accessing the network. Consequently, the network access control market is poised for significant growth in the forthcoming years.
