802.1X Authentication Has Never Been So Easy

Stronger authentication is possible with 802.1X although several challenges currently exist for IEEE 802.1X NAC and authentication. For the most part, the challenges relate to the need for costly hardware, the complexity of integration, and other issues such as authorization and device compliance. 802.1X confers multiple benefits, including enhancements in security that is not dependent on PSKs (pre-shared keys), easy installation and setup of access permissions, and fully integrated management functionality. Given these pros and cons, 802.1x Network access control is a must-have when formulating solutions based on this authentication system. But how can this be achieved easily while not compromising security? Read more here ....
