A Case for Aruba’s ClearPass Access Management System

A recent article from the CIO Journal (see below) discusses the security challenges in the workplace posed by tablet computers.

This is a case where the workplace can benefit from Aruba’s ClearPass Access Management System.  (Especially in this ever-expanding mobile landscape, where personal devices have taken the lead!)

The ClearPass Policy Manager platform provides Role- and Device-based network access control across any Wired, Wireless and VPN Network.  Granular network access privileges can be based on user role, device type and health of endpoint, time-of-day, and more.

For instance, a devicetype-based policy can be defined to block all mobile devices from accessing workplace mission-crucial resources.   Security is managed at the ClearPass level.  No need to modify the user accounts, filesystem permissions, ACLs, or the mobile devices themselves.
