Quotes From Members
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use.
Here are some excerpts of what they said:
Pros
"It is very easy to scale the product."

More Impulse Point SafeConnect Pros →

"The most important feature is that this solution is agentless. So, you don't have to install any agents on endpoints.""It's so easy to set up, you don't need outside assistance.""For the information security team, the security level was improved because it helped to manage and prevent rogue devices from connecting to the corporate network. The reporting was granular, and reports we scheduled for delivery on Portnox were useful during investigations and audits, especially in cases where the IP address changed.""There is an add-on feature for application control to kill unwanted applications when launched on a user's device.""It's a stable product.""Technical support was very helpful when we needed them."

Cons
"The solution would be much better if it offered self-service onboarding."

More Impulse Point SafeConnect Cons →

"Portnox CORE can improve on support for unmanaged switches (or hubs) and other brands of network devices. These kinds of devices are still in use in organisations, especially SMEs who cannot afford to buy a managed switch.""The solution did have some stability issues, however, all I had to do was restart it.""The integration between Portnox CORE and Portnox CLEAR can be better. These are two different systems, and there is no unique console for both devices. Portnox CORE is agentless, whereas Portnox CLEAR is not agentless.""Now, the way security is viewed, maybe including something like AI, to automate some of the things that are required to be done would be great.""One of the things for the on-premise is that sometimes you click on it and it takes a while for it to respond."

Pricing and Cost Advice
  • "For our tier group, for one year, the cost is probably around $10,000 for the license. If you do multi-year, you could get two years, and you could get it for about $8,000 per year. If you do three years, you get it around $7,000 a year."

  • "The vendor price is fair."
  • "The licensing module should be reviewed to count the number of devices instead of port numbers of total switches. There is a case for this where not all ports for a switch are used by devices. Unused ports are calculated in the license, then the customer pays for license for those unused ports."
  • "The users are not very happy with the new licensing option where there is only a subscription license. There is no perpetual license."
