  • Ease of Use: As a zero-touch solution with a pre-set-up infrastructure, even the most complex integrations are made possible with a click of a button. Novice users can complete deployment without any previous knowledge or training required. In monitoring-only mode, gain complete visibility of all endpoints regardless of credential validity or policy violations to allow for simplified and optimized 802.1X deployment.
  • Continuous Risk Monitoring: As a cloud solution, Celestix NAC Cloud is armed with comprehensive capabilities for monitoring the risks presented to the organization by both corporate (managed) and personal (unmanaged) assets, at all times and in all locations. Unlike other NAC solutions, Celestix NAC Cloud enables visibility into and control over endpoints both on and off premise – wherever and whenever a user tries to access the enterprise network.
  • Risk Adaptive Access: Celestix NAC Cloud (Powered by Portnox Clear) enables automated access based on the user’s strong identity and their device risk score when accessing over wired, wireless and virtual networks. Celestix NAC Cloud’s risk scores are derived from endpoint parameters, collated with machine learning to establish an understanding of typical endpoint behavior on the network. Based on risk scores take automated network actions including: quarantining, blocking or requesting updates on endpoints as a condition for access.
  • Greater Visibility: Gain more insight into user and endpoint behavior with full visibility across the extended enterprise. With Celestix NAC Cloud, you can defend more effectively and improve network operations.
  • Fully Compatible with Always On VPN including Microsoft DirectAccess.  Out-of-date software, plugins, and browsers, plus unpatched and unprotected systems leave remote employees even more vulnerable to attack. Businesses now can gain full visibility of their network endpoints from the cloud, giving IT departments the contextual endpoint knowledge, they need in order to know that their data and networks are secure.
