Aruba is in the midst of a massive transition away from networking technologies that were designed for the 20th century when mobile, IoT and cloud did not exist. The surge in mobile and IoT means that the wired and wireless network must deliver more than just connectivity—the network is expected to provide actionable insights about the use of mobile and IoT to justify future investments, so that businesses can adopt new technologies and serve the needs of GenMobile—while keeping the network secure and without breaking the budget. Cloud networking—Aruba Central—Aruba Central manages, monitors and secures wired, Wi—Fi and wide area networks from the public cloud. Thanks to its multi—tenant operation, it enables Aruba and end users to support multiple disparate networks from a single location. Aruba Networks Mobile First Networks are optimized for today’s enterprise and SMB environments where mobile and IoT are pervasive.
IntroSpect User and Entity Behavior Analytics (UEBA) uses AI-based machine learning to spot changes in user behavior that often indicate inside attacks that have evaded perimeter defenses. Security teams are armed with insights into malicious, compromised or negligent users, systems and devices—cutting off the threat before it does damage. Entity360 represents an entity’s security—relevant activity regardless of data source, devices used or activity type. It includes a risk score (0 to 100) as well as a full security profile with hours worth of investigation available in a single click. Entity risk scores based on machine learning can account for key factors like the order and time of incidents across various attack stages as well as time since detection and business context.
Accurate, normalized scores mean security analysts can confidently prioritize their efforts. Machine learning-based analytics build baselines for normal behavior of both individual entities and groups by continuously monitoring IT activities—like authentication, remote access, internal access to high—value resources and cloud app usage—across network and log data. Attack detection and forensics are intrinsically tied together, providing analysts with instant access to complete investigative records. Security teams can now triage more efficiently, make more informed decisions, and respond before damage is done. Aruba security provides 360 degree protection by combining ClearPass network access control with behavior analytics—based attack detection and alerting for a complete solution that secures your organization from malicious threats.
Using policy management in a mobile environment, where users connect over wireless and wired networks throughout the day solves a set of entirely new challenges that didn’t previously exist. If a device is denied access today, user and it productivity is lost. With the right policy management approach, it organizations can ensure that the growing universe of #GenMobile workers get instant access to the apps, printers and network services they’re authorized to use, no matter where they are or what device they have. Mobile devices—authentication services are fairly consistent between AAA and policy management systems.
However, any form of health checks or device interrogation will require a policy management system. A critical policy management capability entails making real—time decisions based on intelligence gathered from devices using NAC and/or MDM agents. the policy management system determines if a device can connect, if remediation is required or if access should be denied. Most it organizations currently rely on active Directory or lDap to assign and enforce security policies for users and devices.

Enterprises moving to voice and video calling on Wi—Fi need their IT departments to design a wireless infrastructure that supports these apps at high density. Wired infrastructure—the integration of the HP Enterprise and Aruba Networks access portfolios is a key ingredient in our mobile—first approach. As organizations transition to the digital workplace, they won’t need as many ports as before because of the increased use of Wi—Fi. Although a highly mobile workforce means that the majority of users will connect via wireless, the surge in IoT devices and the increasing use of Wi—Fi bandwidth means that the wired infrastructure is critical, too.
Predict network issues before they happen—with the huge scale of devices connecting to the network, IT needs granular visibility into the access layer—at the user, device, and app level—to keep things running without disruptions to the business.
