Portnox Q3 2019 Revenue Surges 40% Year-Over-Year with Expanding SaaS Customer Base in U.S., U.K. & Beyond

By | press releases | No Comments

Cloud-delivered network security solution & subscription-based business continues to fuel revenue growth for cybersecurity firm

NEW YORK–Portnox, a leading provider of network access control, visibility and device risk management solutions, today announced that third quarter revenue for 2019 surpassed the same period for 2018 by 40%. Driving this year-over-year growth is the increasing adoption of Portnox CLEAR, the only cloud-delivered network access control (NAC) solution on the market today.

“We bet big on Portnox CLEAR and the SaaS business model,” said Portnox CEO, Ofer Amitai. “We knew that mid-market companies and large enterprises alike – particularly in the U.S. and U.K – would begin to demand cloud-delivered solutions for network access control. We’ve seen this prediction prove itself out over the last year or so, and we’re excited to help more and more organizations properly secure their network in the cloud and sleep well at night.”

Portnox CLEAR is the first cloud-delivered NAC-as-a-cloud-service solution that controls access using continuous risk-scoring of each endpoint; including mobile, BYOD and IoT, connecting from anywhere in the world. It is purpose-built to simplify the complexities associated with implementing NAC, while ensuring organizations have the necessary network visibility and access control mechanisms to protect against non-compliant and rogue devices that can introduce security risks.

In nearly every corner of the globe and across every sector and area of tech, cloud adoption is thriving – from SMBs all the way to large enterprises. In the U.S., 84% of enterprises have implemented a multi-cloud strategy, and spending on cloud services as grown 24% since 2018. In the U.K., cloud adoption among organizations has risen nearly 20% in less than five years. These figures shine a light on a massive transition off of on-premise software solutions to SaaS subscription models. As this new revenue stream grows, many vendors are shifting their focus to developing new cloud offerings, leaving fewer and fewer resources for legacy product innovation.

Earlier this year, Portnox was named Best Network Access Control Solution in Cyber Defense Magazine’s 2019 InfoSec Awards at the RSA Conference in San Francisco, CA. Portnox will return to the RSA Conference in February 2020. More recently, Portnox received the award for Most Valuable Vendor for MSPs (managed service providers) at MSPWorld 2019 in Las Vegas, NV. Since the start of 2019, Portnox has expanded its market focus beyond traditional business-to-business – now offering a comprehensive self-service, multi-tenant portal for MSPs to manage network security for their full portfolio of clients.

Portnox Joins MSPAlliance, Signifying Continued Commitment to Delivering Enterprise-Grade Wifi Security & Network Access Control Solutions via Managed Service Providers

By | press releases | No Comments

With MSPAlliance membership, Portnox aims to strengthen cyber security for businesses via MSPs, & to further democratize cloud-delivered, enterprise-grade wifi security & NAC-as-a-Service solutions

NEW YORK–Portnox, a market leader for enterprise-grade wifi security, network visibility, access control and device risk management solutions, today announced that it has joined MSPAlliance. With more than 30,000 cloud computing and managed service provider (MSP) corporate members, MSPAlliance has grown to become the largest industry association and certification body for cloud computing and managed service professionals.

As a member of MSPAlliance, Portnox seeks to help MSPs deliver simplified enterprise-grade network security solutions to their clients in the cloud – solutions that, until now, were often too complicated to deploy, too difficult to manage and not worth the financial investment. With Portnox CLEAR, the market-leading NAC-as-a-service solution, Portnox is enabling companies to tighten network access control, gain complete visibility into the devices connected to their networks, eliminate network threats in real-time and more.

“With cyber security threats on the rise globally, we believe every company deserves enterprise-grade solutions for wifi security and network access control without having to jump through the hoops associated with complicated configurations and prolonged deployments. We’re confident that in joining MSPAlliance, we will enable many of today’s leading organizations in Financial Services, Healthcare, Manufacturing and beyond to effectively secure their networks and eliminate significant losses – both data and financial – that occur as a result of insecure corporate networks each year,” says Portnox CEO Ofer Amitai.

Today, many organizations both large and small still rely on pre-shared passkeys to access their wifi networks. As such, MSPs are typically called up to update passkeys when employees from their clients’ companies leave. Portnox CLEAR provides a superior grade of security based on the 802.1X standard. With CLEAR, MSPs and their clients alike don’t need to endure complicated and expensive deployment processes. Rather, MSPs can now offer their customers affordable identity-based or certificate-based device authentication and network access through Portnox’s seamless multi-tenant MSP client portal.

MSPAlliance holds its annual MSPWorld Conference and Expo in Las Vegas, Nevada from October 9-11, 2019, where Portnox will serve as a sponsor alongside Citrix, Dell, Leonovus and more. For more information about Portnox’s sponsorship at MSPWorld, or to meet on-site with a Portnox representative, please visit Portnox’s website.

4 tips to safely onboard IoT devices onto your Wi-Fi network by Ofer Amitai – as posted on TechTarget’s IoT Agenda

By | news | No Comments

Catch up on what our CEO, Ofer Amitai, has to say about keeping your IoT and WiFi secured. In this article Ofer discusses the fact that enterprise IoT and Wi-Fi security are not always carefully planned and monitored and that as with BYOD, organizations are oftentimes dealing with IoT without even knowing it. As IoT endpoints are being added to many organizational Wi-Fi networks, the end-goal should be to incorporate enterprise-grade Wi-Fi security to avoid network breaches. Furthermore, Ofer elaborates on the importance of using WPA2-Enterprise authentication to turn the business Wi-Fi into a safer IoT network.

Read all about it here.
