Grazed from Portnox

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.
