Portnox Announces New NAC-as-a-Service, Portnox CLEAR App for the Palo Alto Networks Application Framework

Portnox, a market leader for network visibility, access control and device risk management solutions, today unveiled its Portnox CLEAR app for the Palo Alto Networks Application Framework. The app will offer Palo Alto Networks Application Framework customers a complete view of the network, ability to control the risk by coping with threats in real time, as well as increased visibility into devices - including Bring Your Own Device (BYOD), Internet of Things (IoT), mobile and managed devices, anywhere in the world.

Consuming cybersecurity innovations has become an arduous process. Organizations waste time deploying new sensors every time they want to collect a new piece of data and managing point products rather than improving security controls to stay ahead of attackers. The Palo Alto Networks Application Framework makes it easy to add new security capabilities quickly and efficiently. The framework extends the capabilities of the Palo Alto Networks Security Operating Platform, with a suite of APIs that developers can use to connect innovative apps with rich data, threat intelligence and enforcement points. Organizations gain immediate security value from apps developed by an open ecosystem of trusted innovators.

CLEAR is Portnox's NAC-as-a-Service cloud solution, offering network administrators robust network and cloud access controls, visibility and risk monitoring capabilities. CLEAR augments network security by providing continuous endpoint visibility, including real-time risk assessments in all locations, discovery and visibility of IoT and BYOD devices. Portnox CLEAR generates unique risk scores for each device based on the security configuration and posture of the device in conjunction with contextual behavior patterns, whether a device is on or off premise, over wired, VPN or wireless networks. As part of the Application Framework, the Portnox CLEAR app will enable customers to monitor a network or endpoint threat indications from the Framework, update the risk score of devices, and, based on policy, automatically authorize or block devices from accessing the network.


The Portnox CLEAR app will be available in conjunction with the Palo Alto Networks Application Framework availability.

The Palo Alto Networks Application Framework is targeted for worldwide availability in August 2018 and will be available to customers who have purchased either Palo Alto Networks next-generation firewalls or Traps advanced endpoint protection and the Logging Service subscription.
