In 3 bullets, summarize why this product or service is different from the competition and deserves recognition:

1. The ONLY cloud-delivered pure NAC solution that has zero office footprint and can secure all access layers- wired, wireless, VPN and cloud.
What does cloud-delivered mean? It means that it is native for multi-branch organizations as it is built for the Gartner SASE model. It means that CLEAR auto-scales and allows adding as many endpoints as needed without overloading the system, built-in geo-redundancy, zero on-site infrastructure, best fit for a remote workforce, auto-updates: getting alerts with the latest capabilities in real-time.
2. Simple to use - CLEAR works with any type of equipment and edge network without vendor lock-in and the SaaS model provides easy deployment, registration is online as opposed to installation, deployment & server configuration with the competition, deployed in hours vs. weeks/months with competitors, simplified subscription process without annoying "add-ons".
3. Low Total Cost to Ownership (TCO) - as a SaaS solution CLEAR requires zero maintenance and there are no “change windows”, no patch deployment, seamless upgrades etc. Additionally there are no special skills required for deployment & operations which is crucial for companies, unified posture assessment scores & remediation for all use cases – on premise, remote access & cloud applications, seamless integrations with many common cloud services such as Okta, Azure AD, G-Suite, etc., pay per use – never over-provision licenses or resources.
