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.
