GUEST is the OpenNAC Enterprise module that authenticates external users on their personal devices.
External users and their devices go through an authentication and authorization process where security controls are implemented to grant access to the corporate network.
It offers connectivity to third parties (consultants, partners, etc.) with security controls to ensure the corporate network remains secure and restrict the attack surface.
Dynamically adapts your network to changing demands and the access permissions of numerous guest users. This way you can modify the access rights of multiple guest users.

Eva is part of the sales team at a multinational construction company and uses a network without password protection so that all clients can consult project information when they visit.
She has received a visit from a ‘client’, who turned out to be a competitor on a spying mission. She recognized her and noticed that she was connecting to the guest network to access information and steal clients.
Eva reported the case to the IT department and asked to be able to grant or deny access to this network and the data on it. In this way, she can first evaluate the client’s profile and then grant access to the information.
The construction company has OpenNAC Enterprise and has started implementing access control to the guest network. The control will be through a web portal and only the clients that are given access by the sales team via email will be able to access the information.
The web access portal for visiting clients has been a resounding success. It has been smartly customized, the sponsor for accessing information on the construction projects is the sales agent and the clients enjoy the feeling of a more personalized visit.
About the module
Algunos de nuestros clientes hablan sobre los resultados obtenidos tras la implementación del módulo de la solución OpenNAC Enterprise.
“We had a large number of external users from suppliers, who managed their access personally once they were here on site. Access was granted with a time delay, there was no defined process, suppliers had to personally seek authorization once on site. What’s more, the scope of access permissions was almost identical to the that of our internal users, putting company assets at risk. After implementing the GUEST module, suppliers access the network through the compliance of their devices with a specific security posture and the manager of the department where they are working authorizes the external user’s connection by means of an email ”.
