Network Access Control (NAC), Security Information Management (SIM) and Policy Compliance Management (PCM) are technologies that all fall into the category of advanced security management solutions. A recent survey conducted by Info-Tech Research Group's Indaba division analyzed the market penetration of these technologies as well as the implementation intentions of the surveyed enterprises. This research note evaluates the data contained in that report and breaks it down along the following guidelines:
- High-level implementation status for all three technologies
- Implementation intentions by company size for each individual technology
- Implementation timelines by industry for each individual technology
Enterprises of all sizes are aware of these technologies and a significant percentage plan to implement them within the next 18 months. Understanding what the market is doing in regards to these technologies will allow the enterprise to make educated decisions.
