Convert your Edge data into new business outcomes with Aruba ESP

Aruba ESP is cloud-native architecture built for the Intelligent Edge. Hover over the numbers to learn how each element helps you gain deeper insights into the potential of your Edge data.

Analyze and Act

Conventional ways to manage distributed network infrastructure are too dependent upon scarce IT resources and the overwhelmingly manual processes required to set up, configure, maintain, and optimize Edge networks:

Go beyond human scale with AI and automation that provides recommendations with greater than 95% accuracy, so you can optimize your network without having to wade through a sea of information.

Protect

Managing legacy networks with primarily manual processes creates visibility gaps to potential security vulnerabilities, is prone to human error and latency, and creates unacceptable delays in quarantining potential data breaches:

Apply Edge-to-Cloud security, featuring a build-in foundation for Zero Trust and SASE frameworks, incorporate best practices to protect your network estate from device- and Internet-based threats. Keep your business, customer, and patient data safe by limiting network access based on role, policy, and detailed device profile information-even for headless IoT devices.

Connect

Cloud-native services deployed either in the cloud or on-premises to deliver solutions that integrate setup, configuration and management in a single point of visibility and control with Aruba Central. Rapidly migrate new capabilities from Aruba and ecosystem partners that can be seamlessly added.
