Mobility in a Secure Environment
With hundreds of secure, government-validated networks accredited and deployed, Aruba stands alone as the leading provider of enterprise-class mobility and wireless LAN (WLAN) solutions to the U.S. government.
Government agencies now recognize that commercial mobile devices – laptops, tablets and smartphones – deliver many of the same efficiencies and modernization benefits that enterprise organizations enjoy.
Only Aruba Networks provides government-compliant infrastructure and client software for general purpose commercial mobile device access without limitations. Aruba’s Mobile Virtual Enterprise (MOVE) (PDF) for Government architecture combines advanced WLAN technology with government validated and policy compliant mobile device software supporting stringent government security regulations such as Common Criteria Certification, FIPS 140-2 Validation, DoD directives 8100.2 and 8420.01 Compliance.

Aruba is the only company to combine advanced WLAN technology, military-grade cryptography and security certification compliance to safely allow these mobile devices to access networks that handle sensitive but unclassified, confidential and classified information.
Leveraging its next-generation MOVE architecture, Aruba securely unifies disparate computing infrastructures into one seamless in-building, outdoor and deployable network access solution – for government employees, contractors, visitors, and military personnel in garrison or in deployment.
Aruba MOVE for Government allows secure mobility by linking access privileges to a user’s unique identity and by employing all forms of standards-based security, including NSA-specified Suite B encryption. That means authorized users get secure access to network resources based on who they are – no matter where they are, what devices they use or how they connect.
- Government compliant, secure wireless LANs provide mobility for government workers, military personnel, contractors and guests. Aruba was the first wireless LAN vendor to support stringent government security regulations such as Common Criteria EAL-4, FIPS 140-2 Validation, and DoD directives 8100.2 and 8420.01. Read more »
