Embrace ZERO TRUST NAC for seamless compliance with NCUA ACET guidelines & unrivaled network security.

The NCUA ACET (Automated Cybersecurity Examination Tool) framework was developed by the National Credit Union Administration to assess and enhance the cybersecurity posture of credit unions. Today, credit unions are leveraging zero trust NAC from Portnox to ensure secure access to resources, authenticate users, monitor endpoint risk, and enforce strict security policies in alignment with the NCUA ACET guidelines.

Access Control

Credit unions across the country are using Portnox to enforce access control policies by authenticating users and devices before granting network access. This prevents unauthorized or compromised devices from connecting to the network, reducing the risk of unauthorized access and potential data breaches.

Endpoint Security

Portnox's zero trust platform delivers 24/7 endpoint risk posture assessment, which checks for the presence of up-to-date antivirus software, firewalls, and more. By ensuring that devices meet specific security requirements, the Portnox Cloud helps to mitigate the risk of compromised or vulnerable endpoints connected to the network.


With Portnox, credit unions are able to meet regulatory requirements, such as those outlined by the NCUA. Our zero trust platform helps enforce policies and controls that align with cybersecurity standards and best practices, reducing the likelihood of non-compliance issues.

Network Visibility

Portnox's cloud-native NAC provides detailed visibility into network activity, including the devices connected to the network, their behavior, and potential security threats. This visibility allows credit unions to detect and respond to suspicious or anomalous activities promptly, enhancing their ability to identify and mitigate cybersecurity incidents.

Incident Response

In the event of a cybersecurity incident, the Portnox Cloud can play a vital role in isolating affected devices or blocking unauthorized access, limiting the impact of the incident and preventing lateral movement within the network. The platform can facilitate automated responses or integrate with other security systems to support incident response efforts.
