Pros
The most valuable features of the solution are the user-friendliness, the graphical interface, and the technical support. The interface is very nice and the customization is good.The interface is good and simple to use.The initial setup was easy and straightforward.Compliance checks are a good feature. Compliance check is for windows updates and for antivirus updates, etc.The solution is good at giving a deep dive into each product. It tells you, for example, what is connected to the network. It gives us good reporting tools.When it works, it's great. It keeps things off the network which are supposed to be off the network.

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
For our organization and our clients, the price is the main concern. They should work to make it more competitive.The course content could be improved, it's not that simple to work through.The dashboard needs to improve.The implementation process needs improvement. Right now, it's somewhat complicated. They could create some templates to facilitate implementation. Right now everything is done manually, and it just takes a really long time at the initial setup.I think the network devices need to give more information.The technical support is bad. We've had to escalate to Tier 2 and Tier 3. My customer relationship manager on the other side of this has stopped returning phone calls and emails, because there has been such a constant back and forth.

Overview

The proliferation of Internet of Things (IoT) devices, has made it necessary for organizations to improve their visibility into what is attached to their networks. They need to know every device and every user accessing their networks. IoT devices enable digital transformation initiatives and improve efficiency, flexibility, and optimization. However, they are inherently untrustworthy, with designs that prioritize low-cost over security. FortiNAC provides the network visibility to see everything connected to the network, as well as the ability to control those devices and users, including dynamic, automated responses.

As a software-based Network Access Management (NAM) platform, Portnox CORE’s patented solution allows for efficient management of the security and compliance challenges that organizations face in a smart and simple way.
