What are the differences between FortiAuthenticator and FortiNAC?

Hi peers,

How do FortiAuthentucator and FortiNAC differ? I am also comparing it with Aruba ClearPass.

The NAC can operate without the 802.1x mechanism on the switch side. Also, I think you are making a very wrong comparison on the basis of the class it belongs to(FortiNac vs FortiAuthenticator).
