We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"I can know which end users are using which features."
"This is a self-sufficient network monitoring and security product that saves time and employee resources."
"The minute people have issues on their network, we can see what is happening right away."
"There is an add-on feature for application control to kill unwanted applications when launched on a user's device."
"For the information security team, the security level was improved because it helped to manage and prevent rogue devices from connecting to the corporate network. The reporting was granular, and reports we scheduled for delivery on Portnox were useful during investigations and audits, especially in cases where the IP address changed."
"It's so easy to set up, you don't need outside assistance."
"I'd like to have access to more information on the traffic passing through."
"It might be beneficial to improve the ease of integrating the product with firewalls."
"The licensing is based on a per-port price, even when you are not using all of the ports, and this is something that could be improved."
"Portnox CORE can improve on support for unmanaged switches (or hubs) and other brands of network devices. These kinds of devices are still in use in organisations, especially SMEs who cannot afford to buy a managed switch."
"Now, the way security is viewed, maybe including something like AI, to automate some of the things that are required to be done would be great."
"Pricing is not cheap. It is based on licenses per port. After licensing is purchased, you only pay for support."
"We pay for port licensing and support on a yearly basis, and it's not cheap."
"The vendor price is fair."
"The licensing module should be reviewed to count the number of devices instead of port numbers of total switches. There is a case for this where not all ports for a switch are used by devices. Unused ports are calculated in the license, then the customer pays for license for those unused ports."
