Work from home with secure, always-on connectivity

Deliver the in-office experience, anywhere.

The toughest challenges IT teams face with a hybrid workforce

With more people working remotely, unreliable network access and lack of visibility can lead to soaring help desk calls and increased security risk.
  • Delivering the in-office experience at home is difficult.
  • Applying consistent security controls can be tricky.
  • Consumer-grade equipment makes help desk calls more difficult to resolve.
  • Advanced services can require more hardware in the home.
  • New solutions rarely work right out of the box.

5 essentials for powering the hybrid workforce

Bring the on-campus network experience to the home office with Aruba EdgeConnect Microbranch. Find out how you can support mission-critical work from home with greater ease and control.

Connect with confidence

IT ships an Aruba access point to the employee’s home; the employee plugs it in, downloads a configuration from the cloud, and they’re ready to go.

Optimize the network

Define policies to enhance security and improve user experience for the applications your business relies on, from video conferencing to cloud-based and SaaS applications.

Secure the network

Extend Zero Trust and SASE frameworks to the home office with consistent policy-based access control and integration with cloud-based security services.

Gain deeper visibility

Get a holistic view of the home office network from AP to ISP to accelerate troubleshooting.

Manage from the cloud

Deliver cloud-based security, management, and analytics services directly via the access point—no on-premises gateway required.
