SACRAMENTO, CALIFORNIA, UNITED STATES, April 6, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — Beyond Security, a pioneer in automated penetration testing and vulnerability scanning, announced today that it has partnered with Portnox, a market leader in next-generation network access control (NAC) solutions. The partnership offers a seamless integration between Beyond Security’s beSECURE and Portnox CORE – allowing customers using both products to immediately block vulnerable hosts from accessing selected networks via remote armed incident response teams.
“With today’s volatile and ever changing networking needs, where people switch from accessing the corporate network from work to home computers, the need to be ever vigilant when a security vulnerability is discovered is now possible with the close integration between beSECURE and Portnox,” said Noam Rathaus, Beyond Security co-founder and CTO. “Whenever a security risk that does not meet your security policy is found, the offending desktop, server, or any other BYOD asset is placed in quarantine – disallowing him from corporate network access.”
The rapid adoption of Bring-Your-Own-Device (BYOD) and remote work opens organizations up to attack through rogue devices and unmanaged endpoints not visible to network security teams. The integration allows full visibility of the network and all connected endpoints (including IoT and BYOD), as well as the possibility to quarantine or block infected devices.
“We’re thrilled to be partnering with Beyond Security. The integration of beSECURE and Portnox CORE creates an unparalleled fusion of network vulnerability assessment and access control capabilities,” said Portnox Vice President of Products, Tomer Shemer-Buchbut. “This is especially critical today, as many employees are being forced to work remotely, making networks vulnerable to a whole host of remote access threats.Pairing beSECURE with Portnox CORE enables organizations to effectively identify, mitigate and eliminate network threats across all access layers.”
Beyond Security’s beSECURE customers and Portnox’s CORE customers will now enjoy a layered defense, response and remediation plan on their networks. Blocking and quarantining devices will be based on thorough analysis of reports provided by automated network scanning – increasing accuracy of finding vulnerable assets while blocking them quickly and automatically.
