Genians provides the industry’s leading Network Access Control (NAC) solution, which ensures full visibility of all IP-enabled devices regardless of whether they are wired, wireless, or virtual. It also ensures that they conform to the highest levels of enterprise-mandated security and compliance.

Genians Device Platform Intelligence (DPI), which provides Next-generation device fingerprinting for the IoT era, combines technology information with business context to understand where vulnerabilities may exist. This demands not only a more comprehensive view of the devices themselves but also better understanding of risk indicators.

Network Surveillance
Genian NAC can monitor IP-enabled devices on your network in real-time using a non-disruptive Layer 2 based Network Sensor and classifies those devices and their users into logical groups based on your business requirements. Genian NAC has the intelligence to sort out a wide range of network-connected devices and their states to present immediate, meaningful, and actionable information.

Device Platform Intelligence (DPI)
“Device Platform” refers to any hardware or software, or any combination of hardware and software (OS), used to access a network.
Genian NAC incorporated with Device Platform Intelligence (DPI) can present the most accurate device identity, its contextual, and its risk information in order to enhance network visibility and secure network access for the IoT era. DPI can be shared through the Genians Cloud. 

Network Access Control
Genian NAC leverages multiple techniques to enforce IT security policies dynamically using contextual information (What, Who, When, Where, How) to quarantine any non-compliant devices and remediate them to be compliant through automated processes.

WLAN Security
Genians’ Network Sensor has the capability of scanning all SSIDs in your network and identifying who connects to which SSIDs, capturing not only your organization’s APs but also neighboring APs and controlling what is connecting to those APs. You can allow or deny Wifi-enabled devices accessing different SSIDs based on their policy compliance by groups, such as Authorized AP, Rogue AP, Misconfigured AP, Tethering device, and more.

Critical Security Controls (CIS) For Effective Cyber Defense

Cybersecurity compliance and the management of security risk are clearly two different things. Yet achieving the optimal cyber-defense framework for your organization requires that the two are managed in a mutually supportive fashion. Genians’ Next-Gen NAC supports this approach by leveraging the Center for Internet Security (CIS) Controls.

The CIS Controls provide global standards for cybersecurity. These have become recognized around the world for providing a set of best practices that can be leveraged to secure IT systems and data against attacks.

  Basic CIS Controls Guide Genian NAC Can
1 Inventory and Control of Hardware Assets Detect all IP-enabled devices on the network and identify their specific platform information
2 Inventory and Control of Software Assets Collect installed software information on all devices.
3 Continuous Vulnerability Management Check the status of IT security policy compliance and remediate non-compliant devices.
4 Controlled Use of Administrative Privileges Authorize devices/users based on users’ roles and responsibilities.
5 Secure Configuration for Hardware and Software on Mobile Devices, Laptops, Workstations and Servers Inspect detected devices’ configuration and security settings and maintain security baseline.
6 Maintenance, Monitoring and Analysis of Audit Logs Monitor every single access event by devices and log all access history as part of the audit trail

Without disturbing existing IT infrastructure or impacting systems availability, Genian NAC gathers and monitors the hardware and software asset information of all IP-enabled devices. It then leverages its Device Platform Intelligence capability to determine each device’s technical and business contextual details, identifies all known or potential device vulnerabilities, establishes the level of user access to be provided, and ensures that all detected devices are being compliant. Additionally, Genians NAC can integrate with security solutions such as NGFW, SIEM, and EMM to share intelligence to respond to cyber threats on time. Additional controls, such as those below, can also be implemented efficiently using Genian NAC.
