Allows us to see all the devices and where they're connecting, but they need more support staff

What is our primary use case?

It's being used in a bank of over 4,000 devices, and so far it has been good. No complaints.

Pros and Cons

  • "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."

    What other advice do I have?

    When selecting a product, if I want to bring in a new solution, I will look up the competing solution: What features do they have that are better than what I'm bringing, which will put me in a better position to make an informed decision and advise the customer accordingly. If I'm to advise a customer that wants to buy a similar solution, I would first of all find out what their needs are, what their priorities are. Would they want agent or agentless? Would they want software or hardware? Those are the questions I would have to ask before I can say, "Go for this," or, "Go for that." Honestly…

    Deployment Issues

    Yes, it didn't block rogue devices in 90 seconds, it took 6 minutes, but they fixed it. Besides that, there were a few security issues they fixed.
