I will be giving an hour-long Webcast Wednesday, July 23, 2008, at 11 a.m. PT / 2 p.m. ET, on InformationWeek's 2008 NAC Survey. We asked information professionals about their plans for NAC; why they were embarking on a NAC project; what they expected to achieve; and what their concerns were. We compared these results to past surveys to see what, if anything, has changed.Not surprisingly, the glow and excitement that surrounded network access control (NAC) in its formative years have largely dissipated. Early adopters, usually those who had to implement NAC to meet internal or external requirements for control and reporting, have deployed the technology and taken their knocks. Many of them shared their stories via our third annual InformationWeek NAC survey. In a nutshell, we found that adoption took these cutting-edge companies longer than expected, and what they're getting out of NAC is slightly different from what they had planned.

In this Web cast, I present the results from InformationWeek's 3rd annual NAC survey and discusses the implications. You can register on the registration page.
