Quotes From Members

We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:

Pros
We really like that we get full visibility of devices in the local network.We think it's simple. We think it's very useful and we really like reports and everything.It allows for good detection of all the vendor products we have on-site.The user interface is quite simple.The most valuable feature is the blocking of USB devices.I have noticed that in the last year the license model has changed from licensing the whole appliance to licensing the number of devices. It's more simple for a large installation, or a user to have CounterACT as their peripheral site in the company. It's a good choice to have changed the license policy.The most valuable features are remote access and administration scripts.Emergency response, risk assessment information to get a view of the of the vulnerability.

The minute people have issues on their network, we can see what is happening right away.This is a self-sufficient network monitoring and security product that saves time and employee resources.Previous to the deployment we didn't have complete visibility of all the endpoints, all the devices that are connected to the network. But with the deployment of portnox, we could see all the devices and where they're connecting. We can equally segregate and apply different rules, policies to each location that we didn't monitor specifically.It's agentless, and it's scalable.

Cons
It's scalable, but not without a big investment. It doesn't do so well at the branch. At the home office, it does okay and not so well at the branch.The biggest disadvantage is the pricing.The solution could always improve by adding more features to make it more robust.The solution does have a bit of complexity, and there's some complexity in the deployment. Users need to be trained before undertaking an initial setup.The ability to block external devices in Mac is lacking and needs to be added.For the user, the policy that they have implemented sometimes needs adjustments. Sometimes the features that the customer asks for aren't involved in the main installation, and I need to bolt an add-on in. However, I never know if this policy is the right one when I do this.We experienced some detection issues when checking compliance for the Sophos agent.Search - needs boolean functionality (or pseudo operand now working).

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.It might be beneficial to improve the ease of integrating the product with firewalls.

Pricing and Cost Advice
Devices with multiple IP's count multiple times against your license count.

We pay for port licensing and support on a yearly basis, and it's not cheap.Pricing is not cheap. It is based on licenses per port. After licensing is purchased, you only pay for support.
