We recently ran a survey asking for your experience with Network Access Control (NAC) products and your thoughts on an upcoming NAC solution from Juniper. I'm happy to share that your input made a huge impact-just last week, Juniper launched the Mist Access Assurance, which leverages Mist AI and a modern microservices cloud to provide a full suite of NAC and policy management functions. Our Juniper stakeholder said the solution was launched with that name after your feedback confirmed it was the right choice!
Here are some snippets of what you and your industry peers shared in the survey:
- The vast majority (96%) of members are aware of NAC and two-thirds of them have had a positive experience with it.
- Those who have not had a positive experience with NAC products say it's mainly because of the tedious set-up and poor ease of use.
- After hearing the description of Mist Access Assurance, the majority said that it would solve their dissatisfaction with existing NAC products in the market.
- And two-thirds said that Juniper Mist Access Assurance offers value that existing NAC products do not, with its most important attributes being:
-Automatic updates for feature/security with no downtime
-High network availability
-Simple network policy creation and enforcement
One respondent from the United States said: "I think that Juniper Mist Access Assurance sounds like a very modern, innovative, and futuristic service that has a lot of beneficial technical features, which I think will help Juniper customers save a lot of time."
Thank you again for your participation in this study! Our stakeholder says: "We appreciate your candid input and look to incorporate your feedback into future campaigns. Thanks for being part of the Juniper family!"
