FortiNAC is a zero-trust access solution that oversees and protects all digital assets connected to the enterprise network, covering devices from IT, IoT, OT/ICS to IoMT.

FortiNAC is Fortinet’s network access control solution that enhances the Fortinet Security Fabric with visibility, control, and automated response for everything that connects to the network. FortiNAC provides protection against IoT threats, extends control to third-party devices, and orchestrates automatic response to a wide range of networking events.​

For over 20 years, FortiNAC has been safeguarding organizations in the digital transformation journey by protecting ever-growing networks and digital assets. With continued technology advancement and innovations, FortiNAC expands its protection for today’s dynamic and ever-growing attack surface. It does this through real-time visibility, streamlined enforcement, dynamic policy adjustment, and automated response to compromised devices or anomalous activity.​

Integrating with FortiGate and other Fortinet Security Fabric, FortiNAC gains a more comprehensive and accurate view of connected devices and users. Expanding its capability with true multi-vendor environment, FortiNAC can leverage existing infrastructure and orchestrate network segmentation and automated response. ​

Introduction to FortiNAC

Gain visibility, control, and automated response across your wired and wireless network using network access control.

Watch Now

The FortiNAC product line includes hardware appliances, virtual machines and licenses.  The licenses can run on either the hardware appliance or the virtual machine.  Each FortiNAC deployment requires both a Control and Application server.  Note that if your deployment is larger than what a single server can support, you can stack servers for more capacity.  The FortiNAC solution has no upper limit on the number of concurrent ports it can support.
