Network Access Control Market Statistics: 2032

The global network access control market was valued at $2.6 billion in 2022, and is projected to reach $16.2 billion by 2032, growing at a CAGR of 20.6% from 2023 to 2032. With the rise in remote work and BYOD, the attack surface for potential security threats also expanded significantly. As a result, to provide enhanced services, network access control solutions have evolved to implement robust security measures, including authentication, authorization, and endpoint compliance checks. These measures further ensured that only authorized and secure devices can access the corporate network propelling the growth of the cloud local technologies market.

Network Access Control Market

Network access control is an enterprise security solution used to assess, manage, enforce, and optimize security and authentication policies through different measures like endpoint security measures, user access authentication, and network security policies. In addition, the fundamental goal of network access control is to create a security barrier that prevents illegal device activity, network-based threats, and unauthorized individuals from entering. Network access control used to be primarily concerned with network and computer security, making sure that all traffic was authorized. Network access control, however, has a far wider and more substantial impact area now that the internet of things (IoT), many linked endpoints, software-as-a-service (SaaS) applications, and personal gadgets that double as professional devices are all on the rise.

However, enterprise protection requires highly adaptable and modern network access and security specialists due to the constantly changing and dynamic nature of the cyber threat environment. In addition, high-profile data breaches have increased exponentially. On the other hand, cloud-based solutions and security for network access control is very necessary to figure out the security of operating systems and for greater scalability compared to on-premises systems. As a result, this allows for easier expansion of network access control systems to accommodate the growing number of devices and users in an organization.
