NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Nov 13, 2019--

Portnox, which supplies network access control, visibility and device risk management to organizations of all sizes, today announced its newest integration with Okta, Inc., the leading independent provider of identity for the enterprise.

“Our recent integration with Okta for improved IAM will make the self-onboarding process easier and more secure for new and existing Portnox CLEAR customers who already rely on Okta for single sign-on (SSO) and identity management,” said Tomer Shemer-Buchbut, Vice President of Product at Portnox. “Portnox CLEAR customers can now take advantage of our simplified, cloud-delivered NAC platform with a built-in integration with Okta – out of the box,” continued Shemer-Buchbut.

Portnox CLEAR is a cloud-delivered service for automated network visibility and access control management (NAC as-a-Service) providing control of IoT, as well as managed and unmanaged devices. The platform’s integration with Okta Universal Directory now allows Portnox CLEAR end-users to enroll their devices into CLEAR and connect to organizational networks using their corporate Okta accounts. Additionally, organizational administrators now have the ability to log into their CLEAR portal from their Okta user portal using SAML SSO.

“This integration signifies our commitment to improving and further simplifying the Portnox CLEAR user experience from start to finish,” said Portnox CEO, Ofer Amitai. “With Okta’s industry-leading Identity-as-a-Service platform, we’ve further strengthened the Portnox product offering and helped many of our customers extend their SSO requirements to their network security efforts,” added Amitai.
