Portnox Brings Increased Network Visibility And Enforcement With TrapX Integration

NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--

Portnox, a market leader for network visibility, access control and device risk management solutions, and TrapX Security, the global leader in deception-based advanced cyber-security defense, announced today the integration of Portnox’s cloud-based and on-premise network access control (NAC) solutions, Portnox CLEAR and Portnox CORE, with TrapX’s DeceptionGrid product. The joint solution will give customers the ability to detect unauthorized activity on the network, as well as enforce security policies in real time.

The integration of Portnox’s solutions with DeceptionGrid provides CISOs, CSOs, IT teams and network administrators with a complete view of the network, as well as increased visibility into devices – including BYOD, Internet of Things (IoT), mobile and managed devices, anywhere in the world. As DeceptionGrid identifies threats, it shares that information with Portnox to either allow or restrict device access. Portnox generates unique risk scores for each device based on whether a device is on or off premise, over wired, VPN or wireless networks and creates accurate risk profiles and authenticates devices according to score.

“As today’s workforce is increasingly complex and difficult to secure, organizations need a way to secure both the entire network and every endpoint – whether it’s a laptop, smartphone or even a TV in the boardroom – attempting to access the network,” said Ofer Amitai, CEO, Portnox. “We are committed to helping enterprises implement easy-to-deploy network security solutions and our integration with TrapX, further helps us provide complete visibility and control. Partnering with TrapX, the deception market leader, allows us to provide both the detection and enforcement enterprises need to keep their networks safe.”

Additionally, as more organizations undergo digital transformation, it’s important they have the right solutions to minimize digital business risk. Portnox CLEAR, the cloud-based NAC solution, has all the benefits of a Security-as-a-Service solution paired with robust access controls, network visibility and risk monitoring capabilities.

“Cyber adversaries have found new ways to bypass perimeter solutions and penetrate the network. As our customers undergo cloud and IoT transformations, they are looking for end-to-end solutions that allow them not only to detect highly sophisticated attacks across their network, IoT and cloud infrastructure, but to also automatically repel those attacks,” said Ori Bach, VP of Product, TrapX Security. “Integrating with Portnox was a natural fit that enhanced our detection capabilities to include enforcement of access policies for all devices with the goal of preventing unauthorized access.”

Together, the integration of Portnox and TrapX enables customers to:

  • Detect threats faster in areas of the network where they previously had limited visibility, minimizing the chances of a successful breach. This deep visibility into malicious activity within an organization’s cloud can minimize or eliminate the risk to intellectual property, IT assets, critical infrastructure and impact on business operations.
  • See relevant security risks on the network. The joint solution will provide continuous visibility, including real-time risk assessments of all endpoints in all geographical locations, as well as discovery and visibility of IoT and BYOD devices.
  • Control access by mitigating cybersecurity risks with automated features to limit access, quarantine and block rogue devices or install patch updates. Portnox immediately remediates security issues by allowing for complete control and wield over all network variables.
  • Automate reactions based on device and user behavior to prevent breaches. By automating access policies based on device risk scores, customers are prompted with administrator reactions such as patch, anti-virus and OS updates.
