Portnox Sphere MSP/MSSP Channel Program Enables Partners to Deliver NAC-as-a-Service

Sponsored by Businesswire

a leading provider of network access control, visibility and device risk
management solutions, today announced a global partner program tailored
to the needs of managed service providers (MSPs) and managed security
service providers (MSSPs). The Portnox Sphere MSP/MSSP Program enables
partners to deliver network access control (NAC) as a service from the
cloud, without making any hardware or software investments.

According to MarketsandMarkets™,
the global Managed Security Services market size was worth USD 20.81
Billion in 2017 and is expected to reach USD 47.65 Billion by 2023,
growing at a Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) of 14.7% during the
forecast period.

“Midsize enterprises are choosing Portnox because our technology can be
deployed on-premise or as a cloud service, support any device from all
access layers and eliminate the management complexity of other network
access control products,” said Ofer Amitai, CEO and Co-Founder of
Portnox. “We expect to extend our market lead in 2019 as more managed
service providers adopt our cloud-delivered CLEAR product to offer

Using Portnox CLEAR, MSPs/MSSPs can centrally deploy, provision and
manage NAC services to provide their end customers with complete
visibility and control over all devices connecting to wired, wireless
and VPN networks, including BYOD and Internet of Things (IoT) systems.
Until now, the cost, complexity and ongoing management overhead of
traditional NAC solutions has prevented many midsize organizations from
deploying this foundational network security technology.

The Sphere MSP/MSSP Partner Program now makes it possible for
organizations with limited IT resources to acquire NAC as a subscription
service from qualified and trusted providers they may already be working

“Today’s world is about mobility and cloud-centric work environments.
Often, WiFi is vehicle for these connections. Our customers are battling
to keep up with the growing number of on-premise and remote devices they
are required to maintain and manage. To that end, network access control
has become the gotta-have technology for these customers,” said Niccolo
Alicandri, CBO for CipherTechs. “The Portnox CLEAR technology enables
our clients to enforce NAC from the cloud to businesses anywhere in the

“Since employees access corporate data from managed and unmanaged
devices, network access control has become top-of-mind with many of our
partners,” said Nathan Heintzeman, Business Analyst for Symplexity.
“Portnox CLEAR minimizes the complexity of NAC, while providing in-depth
security, visibility and device risk management.”

The Portnox MSP/MSSP Program includes the following elements to create a
profitable recurring revenue stream for managed service providers:

  • Lower administrative overhead with flexible payment options that
    remove up-front costs of annual contracts. With SaaS pay-as-you-go
    subscriptions, users only pay for what they need
  • Single pane of glass to manage all customers via a unified management
    portal. The management portal enables single-sign-on, customization
    and configuration for each MSP customer
  • Unique MSP pricing model – discounts are based on the total amount of
    devices under management (not per organization under management) as
    well as an additional MSP partnership level discount
  • Tailored security stacks: provide the ability to customize security
    integrations to implement unique solution stacks based on customer and
    partner requirements. A documented RESTful API is available for MSPs
  • Sales tools and dedicated marketing support
  • Dedicated customer support resources for partners
