NAS view page gave a virtual graphical view of the switches, similar to the physical view, and just like how you see the ports on them. 

There is an add-on feature for application control to kill unwanted applications when launched on a user's device.

It has a feature to check the compliance state of computers. An example is for an antivirus. It checks if it was installed, installed but not running, or not installed, then it defines policy action based on compliance status, which it applies.

It supports a good number of known antivirus products.

It has scheduling reports for backward review of incidents.

Its knowledge base refers you to similar tickets or solutions.

Great visibility on who and what is connected or joined the network at any one time. This also allows for security posture attainment because of the profiling features of Portnox Core that allow for a particular endpoint update baseline to join the network or be quarantine until the baseline is met

Manager at a financial services firm with 201-500 employees

Sophos has an endpoint side, a firewall side, access control, and a phishing side. It is an entire network security solution.

What Sophos has done is integrate almost the entire OSI layer infrastructure. It gives me visibility across my infrastructure. It gives me visibility into all the mobile devices that are on my network and into the security I have on those mobile devices. I also have visibility into my users, my servers, and into what is happening at all my gateways, as well as visibility on my switches. So it gives me a global view of my infrastructure.

The beautiful thing about it is that it has an integration between the endpoint and the firewall. So if any of my endpoints, systems like desktops or laptops, does not have an updated patch, it will be disconnected from the network.

The solution is quite scalable. You can expand it if you need to. It's designed to be modular.

We've found the solution to be very stable. The performance is great.

The installation is very straightforward.

It's a great solution. We use it for the internet here and it's been helpful. It's a great product for our Mac PCs and we can implement it to both our wireless and our wired network.

It's very quick.

The compliance aspects of the solution are excellent and one of the solution's best features. It helps us maintain the compliance of our endpoints.

In terms of physical tools, we are very satisfied.

In our organization, the solution provides us with a sound perimeter. 

The user interface is quite simple.

The version we're currently on, 8.6, has a lot more plugins than past versions. Now you can plug in anything you want. It helps us to utilize the product more fully.

Sr. Network Engineer at William Blair & Company

The key feature we use is AD integration. That feature needs the least amount of attention once set up. 

Monitoring and logging are the pieces that we use most day-to-day. These are used by both our network and security teams to ensure proper operation with minimal risk. Whether machines attempting access are firm managed, vendors visiting, or IoT, all are available within the CA appliance. We plan to extend the use to further support growth functionalities and new work from home initiatives going forward.

Senior Network Engineer at Tessy Plastics

The biggest benefit to our organization is the fact that being in manufacturing you have many different types of devices. Only a small section of these types of devices support dot1x authentication. This makes Network Access Control very difficult to implement. With Forescout, the difficulty becomes significantly less. Being able to actively identify the client without a certificate allows you to control every device on your network regardless of the make, model, and software running. This allows for end-to-end security.

Senior Security Engineer at a healthcare company with 10,001+ employees

There are so many to list: 

  • The policies and what you can do with them is amazing. 
  • The ability to narrow down devices online versus offline.
  • Get the MAC Addresses last attributed with a device or IP address on a device and connect that to its switch port or router. This is very beneficial when assisting in tracing back physical connectivity, if needed. 
  • The ability to move a device off the network is very useful. The hardest part is showing the help desk what they need to do when troubleshooting a device connectivity issue.

Access control: Being able to set policies that determine how devices join our network and how they are expected to behave while on the network. The fact that we are able to access the hygiene of our endpoint and monitor it continuously makes it fit for purpose.

The 802.1X configuration, which is difficult for all switches, is not required. It makes it easier to work with switches and IoT devices.

Product Manager - IT Security at a tech services company with 11-50 employees

Its feature that I have found most valuable is that it is very granular. You can configure granular controls just as you want those policies to be implemented. It gives you that flexibility to go granular in how you want your controls to be implemented. That's something I like about it. 

The pricing, technical support, stability, scalability, initial set up, interface, dashboards, management, and monitoring are fantastic. They are excellent. 

The licensing of the solution is pretty simple. The process of deploying the solution is pretty straightforward. The dashboard, in terms of monitoring and management, is pretty simple. Maybe because I have a very robust technological background is why I don't struggle with these things. In terms of management, deployment, and support, although I really don't require their support, so far, so good.

Senior Network Engineer at a government with 5,001-10,000 employees

I think the most valuable feature is that the port-based 802.1x configuration on switch ports is not required. It operates by listening to the wire and talking to networking devices. That is a huge reduction in configuration complexity.

You can quickly filter your view of devices and zero in on the ones you want using a variety of tools, such as what subnet it is on or what it has been classified as.

Another good thing about the product that it can examine every endpoint and give information about it, even IoT devices.

Senior Cybersecurity Solution Architect at a computer software company with 10,001+ employees

We are only consultants, so we implement FortiNAC for our customers. The good part about FortiNAC is that it works seamlessly across either public cloud, private cloud, a hybrid one or on premises. So, depending on the client's requirements, I usually suggest that they go for public cloud where they have remote locations, and that they go for an application where they have a large deployment, adequate network and technical staff to support the requests.

The features we generally propose is basically agent-based authentication and the agent case solution product for wireless endpoints, which allow them to do automatic registration, and the third would be the health checks.

Cyber Security Specialist at a tech services company with 51-200 employees

There are quite a number of things that are valuable about this solution. Having dealt with Cisco ISE, I realize that FortiNAC is different in a way that gives you granular visibility of the entire network infrastructure related to IOT devices (Who, What, When, Which information). It's helpful that you can know what's going on from your phone, your tablet, and from home. The solution provides containment, reporting and security event-alarm mapping and saves log and carries out further analysis for cyber thefts. It really is a good solution.

The .1x authentication schema is the most valuable aspect of the solution. It makes it possible to have multiple policies and it can still adapt to us. We can authenticate and calculate our trajectory and so on. The policy is very easy to put in place. It's got to be easy due to the fact that we have more than 200,000 devices.

The implementation is very simple.

To be clear, I'm not an expert in networking, so I'm pretty much like a user.

I really like the guest WiFi. Those kinds of features are pretty convenient. When I have a guest in the form of a third party, I can grant access to the guest for a certain period of time and have a dynamic password generated. It's great.

The user experience of the solution is great. It's a very transparent system.

We are a system integrator and Cisco ISE is one of the products that we sell and implement at our customers side. I have built ISE's POC and provided training to our customers.

I also used real rent lab which was including; Active Directory integration, network access and core switches, access points, wireless access controller, and end points. (some end points have cisco client - anyconnect, and have not), and Web Server for creating wireless authentication portal solution end to end

The AAA features were awesome and have important attributes, and also the security groups (SGTs) concept to enforce policies for each group of users, regardless they coming via wired or wireless network devices. also i see the guest authentication is very rich and easy tom implement

The posturing is the solution's most important aspect. When a user connects his or her machine to the network, the first is for ISE to check whether that machine is authorized, check that that machine is compliant with respect to antiviruses, whether it complies with respect to Windows updates, et cetera. If not, a feature is on auto-remediation, so that the proper antivirus and Windows updates can be pushed to the machine.

At the moment, ISE seems to integrate very well with a number of other technologies. It integrates well with Microsoft and integrates well with other wireless systems.

Solution Architect Telecom at a manufacturing company with 10,001+ employees

The actual radius is the most valuable aspect of the solution. We need to have a centric solution either on MarTech X and for the wireless user authentication. We were mainly on Cisco and we continue to use them. However, this is the time period for a refresh as the five-year lifespan is completed. We may look for other options.

Technical support is okay.

In terms of features, I think they've done a lot of improvement on the graphical user interface — it looks really good right now. ISE is always very complicated to deploy because it's GUI-based. So they came up with this feature called work centers, that kind of streamlines that process. That's a good feature in the product right now.
