Cloud-Native Network Access Control

The Critical Cybersecurity Tools Needed to Protect Corporate Networks, Devices & Data in an Increasingly Hostile & Complex World

Traditional legacy on-premises network access control (NAC) products have evolved into massive, monolithic systems that are heavy to deploy, difficult to maintain, and a drain on resources. To maximize efficiency and protect their bottom lines, IT teams need to shift to cloud-native network security products – starting with network access control.

In this white paper, Portnox explores:

  • How legacy NAC products fall short
  • The pitfalls of "cloud-managed" security tools
  • Why NAC is essential to your security program
  • The operational values of cloud-native NAC

Deploying NAC is as Easy as 1-2-3

Customers Are Saying...

When we initially got access to the environment to conduct our proof of concept, we set up our account and then set a meeting for a week out to assess where we were and what we still needed to do. Well, my systems admin basically got everything configured in a few days all on his own.


Chris Becker
National IT Director @ AbsoluteCare

Our network engineers have found Portnox very easy to configure. The team particularly likes that there’s no on-prem component or need to upgrade servers on a regular basis.


Marcelo Lew
IT Security Manager @ Univ. of Denver

We conducted a test of Portnox CLEAR – your cloud NAC service – for access control across our WiFi environment. It took literally ten minutes to set up with the help of Portnox’s support engineer.


Andrew Sayegh
IT Infrastructure Engineer @ Schuman Cheese

We decided to go with Portnox because of its ease-of-deployment - we were set up within half an hour, and are very satisfied with how easy it is to use this centrally managed solution....With Portnox, it’s been easy to scale to other locations quickly.
