ANAHEIM, Calif. Portnox, a market leader for network visibility, access control and device risk management solutions, today announced the availability of the Portnox CLEAR app for the Palo Alto Networks® Application Framework. The Application Framework is a cloud-based framework that extends the capabilities of the Palo Alto Networks Security Operating Platform, which allows organizations to rapidly consume and implement a variety of innovative cloud-based security applications from any provider, large or small.
The app will offer Palo Alto Networks customers a complete view of the network, the ability to mitigate device risk by coping with threats in real time, as well as the ability to automate network access and on-boarding scenarios for employees, contractors, guests and non-corporate machines, IN and OUTSIDE the enterprise perimeter.
CLEAR is Portnox’s NAC-as-a-Service cloud solution, offering network administrators robust network and cloud access controls, visibility and risk monitoring capabilities. CLEAR augments network security by providing continuous endpoint visibility, including real-time risk assessments in all locations, device discovery and visibility of Internet of Things (IoT) and BYOD devices. CLEAR generates unique risk scores for each device based on the security configuration and posture of the device in conjunction with contextual behavior patterns, whether a device is on or off premise, over wired, VPN or wireless networks. As part of the Application Framework, the Portnox CLEAR app will enable customers to monitor a network or endpoint threat indications from the framework, to update the risk score of devices, and to identify all devices that share the same threat by using CLEAR’s unique visibility and data discovery capabilities. Based on policy, CLEAR will then automatically authorize or block devices from accessing the network.

All organizations need total visibility into their networks and every endpoint. Portnox is committed to making endpoint visibility and access control easier than ever before by having real-time rapid response capabilities as well as risk-mitigation tools. Our app for the Palo Alto Networks Application Framework will further help us provide complete visibility and control, keeping more enterprises safe and secure.”– Ofer Amitai, CEO, Portnox
