New York, November 14, 2018 – Portnox, a market leader for network visibility, access control and device risk management solutions, today announced the availability of the Portnox CLEAR solution on Microsoft Azure Marketplace and the Microsoft AppSource.
To date, CLEAR is the only NAC as-a-Service solution provided in the Azure Marketplace and the Microsoft AppSource. As a SaaS solution, CLEAR is always running the latest version, latest security and latest features with seamless upgrades.
Portnox CLEAR, the first cloud-delivered network access control solution, offers Azure Marketplace and AppSource users a complete view of the network and visibility into all devices, as well as the ability to mitigate device risk by coping with threats in real time. Additionally, users can automate network access and on-boarding scenarios for employees, contractors, guests and non-corporate machines, on or off premise. Key features include expanded threat management, breach remediation, network access control, and automated implementation of compliance protocols.
Today’s geo-distributed and highly mobile workforce requires network access via different types of endpoints (corporate issued, BYOD and IoT) and via multiple access layers (VPN, wired, wireless or cloud). CLEAR augments network security by providing continuous endpoint visibility, including real-time risk assessments in all locations, device discovery and visibility of all endpoints, including Internet of Things (IoT) and BYOD. Unique risk-scores are generated for each device based on its security posture in conjunction with contextual behavior patterns. If the risk-score is too-high, CLEAR will not allow access or will allow limited access by quarantining the endpoints to a certain VLAN. If the risk-score is low – CLEAR continues to monitor the endpoint. Additionally, with automated threat response, CLEAR prompts patching, anti-virus and OS updates based on company policy, thereby making it more challenging for cyber offenders to exploit vulnerabilities.
“With the influx of connected devices on the corporate network, reaching 200 billion connected devices by 2020, and geo-distribution of organizations a common phenomenon, today’s workforce is increasingly complex and difficult to secure. 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.”
