Regulatory Compliance

Integrated wireless security controls to achieve compliance

Businesses must secure their IT applications and infrastructure to meet a growing number of regulatory requirements as well as their own corporate IT security policies. Organizations need an effective way to ensure the security of their wireless LAN (WLAN) to meet these complex requirements.

Aruba WLANs are architected with multiple levels of protection to meet today’s stringent security requirements. With Aruba, organizations gain a simpler and more cost-effective path to security compliance.

Organizations across many sectors must comply with security regulations, including:

  • Retail

    Payment Card Information Data Security Standards (PCI DSS) apply to any organization that stores, transmits and accepts credit or debit cards. PCI requires the periodic scanning of wireless traffic even if WLANs are not used. Aruba’s integrated wireless intrusion prevention capabilities are the most cost-effective way to comply with PCI requirements globally. Read more (PDF)

    Heath Information Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA), Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health (HITECH), ISO/IEC 27002 mandates and best practices describe network security requirements that protect electronic personal health information. Healthcare organizations can use Aruba’s integrated role-based firewall, wireless intrusion prevention and logging capabilities to address these requirements. Read more (PDF)

  • Government agencies and departments

    Federal Information Processing Standard (FIPS), CESG Manual Y, Common Criteria and DoD Directive 8100.2 are defined by international government bodies and must be met before a WLAN can be deployed. Aruba 802.11n WLANs have built-in security capabilities and certifications that comprehensively address these requirements. Read more (PDF)
