Portnox Wins Award for “Cutting Edge NAC” in 9th Annual Global InfoSec Awards at RSAC 2021

NEW YORK–Portnox is proud to announce it has won the award for “Cutting Edge Network Access Control (NAC)” from Cyber Defense Magazine, the world’s leading information security e-magazine. “We’re thrilled to receive one of the most prestigious and coveted cybersecurity awards in the world from Cyber Defense Magazine. We knew the competition would be tough – after all, the judges are leading infosec experts from around the globe. We couldn’t be more pleased,” said Ofer Amitai, CEO at Portnox.

Portnox’s cloud-delivered NAC-as-a-Service – Portnox CLEAR – has taken the network access control (NAC) market by storm in recent years, seeing a surge of new customers seeking to move off of their legacy on-premise NAC solutions. In 2020, Portnox saw its revenue grow 30% year-over-year.

“As the only true SaaS NAC product on the market, Portnox CLEAR is making NAC implementation and deployment easier for enterprises – particularly those with highly distributed networks,” said Tomer Shemer-Buchbut, Vice President of Products at Portnox. “By eliminating on-going maintenance like upgrades and patches common of on-premise NAC, we’re offering companies far better total cost of ownership.”

“Portnox embodies three major features we judges look for to become winners: understanding tomorrow’s threats, today, providing a cost-effective solution and innovating in unexpected ways that can help stop the next breach,” said Gary S. Miliefsky, Publisher of Cyber Defense Magazine.

With 80 billion connected devices expected to be in use by 2025, the NAC market is growing rapidly – projected to reach nearly $12 billion globally. Device proliferation paired with an ever-expanding number of cyber threats and hybrid workforce operations has made network access control a critical component of any enterprise cybersecurity stack. “NAC is front and center for CISOs and their IT security teams. Expect the demand for network access control – particularly cloud NAC – to continue to grow as companies continue to embrace emerging networking models like SD-WAN, ZTNA and SASE,” said Amitai.

Portnox Aids Credit Unions in Meeting New NCUA ACET Compliance Standards for Cybersecurity

By | press releases | No Comments

As the NCUA’s cybersecurity standards tighten, Portnox’s network access control solutions are enabling credit unions to remain compliant & operational

NEW YORK, NY – March 3, 2021 – Portnox, a leading provider of network access control (NAC) and network security solutions, today announced that it has begun working with a number of U.S.-based credit unions to enhance their cybersecurity programs and meet stricter controls standards laid out within the National Credit Union Administration’s (NCUA) new Automated Cybersecurity Examination Tool (ACET) framework.

According to the NCUA, the ACET mirrors the FFIEC’s Cybersecurity Assessment Tool developed for voluntary use by banks and credit unions. Just like the FFIEC’s Tool, the ACET consists of two parts: The Inherent Risk Profile and the Cybersecurity Maturity level. The Control Maturity portion measures a credit union’s level of cybersecurity controls. The levels range from “baseline” to “innovative,” with the 123 baseline statements representing the minimum regulatory expectations.

“In light of recent network hacks, and as the NCUA audits continue to expand, many credit unions struggle with finding an effective solution to meet Domain 3 controls within the ACET framework,” said Ofer Amitai, CEO at Portnox. “Fortunately, Portnox can provide the network access control, endpoint awareness, risk and real-time remediation capabilities that either directly meet or highly contribute to many of the most difficult ACET Domain 3 audit areas and requirements.”

Portnox CLEAR, the first and only cloud-delivered network access control solution on the market, is a natural fit for credit unions. With no on-site networking hardware required to operate, no patching or on-going maintenance, and low overall total cost of ownership, Portnox CLEAR caters to financial institutions with minimal in-house IT resources needing to meet regulatory and compliance standards.

“We spent years looking for a NAC solution for our clients that was affordable, and more importantly, something that wasn’t extremely difficult to install. We found that with Portnox CLEAR, and now our clients are benefiting from enhanced security and compliance by using CLEAR,” said Lee Bird, President at Btech, a managed security services provider and Portnox partner based in Pasadena, California that specializes in cybersecurity for credit unions.
