Identify, connect, and protect mobile and IoT at the edge.
The move to smart buildings causes security challenges, especially given the huge number of mobile and IoT devices connecting to the network. Aruba’s 4-step approach to secure connectivity at the edge allows businesses to harness the value of IoT, while keeping the network — and sensitive corporate assets — safe.

Identify what’s on your network.
Security starts with understanding what’s on the network—unmanaged smartphones, rogue endpoints, IoT devices. These all increase the attack surface and threaten enterprise security. The new Aruba ClearPass Universal Profiler gives you a simple and cost effective way to identify what’s on multi-vendor wired and wireless networks, so you can take steps to protect the network.

Wired is the new worry.
In the past, network access control discussions centered on securing the wireless network. With many IoT devices connecting via wired, it’s time for the same level of attention to be given to securing the wired infrastructure.

Connect smart buildings with an intelligent wired infrastructure.
Aruba switches are designed to power and secure the intelligent edge. The new 2540 switch is cost effective, cloud manageable, and supports role-based profiles (ACL, VLAN, policing) for distributed enterprises with IoT. The higher-end Aruba switches also add the ability to do port-based or role-based tunneling to a controller to further secure the network and extend services.

Protect the network by enforcing policies across wired and wireless infrastructures.
Once you have device visibility and know your risk exposure, you need a way to automatically authenticate and enforce policies. Aruba provides an upgrade path from the ClearPass Universal Profiler to ClearPass Policy Manager for policy control and workflow automation. And the OnConnect feature uses existing switch protocols for visibility, access controls, and enforcement across wired ports.
