Workplace design and technology — as you move to the digital workplace, it’s critical to get your IT infrastructure ready. To meet the challenges, Aruba offers an integrated wired and wireless portfolio, with industry-leading advances in network management and security.

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 Aruba Networks WLAN Mobility Controllers 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. Aruba Networks AirWave is a powerful and easy-to-use network management system that manages Aruba Networks wired, wireless, and remote access networks, as well as multi vendor wired and wireless infrastructures.

Create Smarter, More Efficient Spaces With IoT

BYOD changed the playing field and allowed the workplace to go mobile. Now IoT is taking things up a notch by creating smarter, more efficient work spaces — intelligent meeting rooms, location services, and real-time monitoring. Aruba Networks was there to solve your BYOD challenges and we’re ready for IoT. Are you? With the surge of IoT devices connecting to enterprise networks, conventional BYOD methods of securing access won’t be enough. Safeguard your network with Aruba technologies — 802.11ac, AppRF, SDN, and Aruba Networks  ClearPass — to make sure devices talk to the things they should. Aruba Networks AirWave software is a powerful tool for not only monitoring your entire access network but also improving user experience with rich analytics. Aruba Networks AirWave 8.2 meets this challenge by offering better network analytics and predictive visualization. With Aruba Networks AirWave, IT now gets unprecedented insights into Wi-Fi connectivity.

Aruba Networks ArubaOS

ArubaOS is the operating system for all controller-managed wireless LANs. With an extensive set of integrated technologies and capabilities, Aruba Networks ArubaOS is able to deliver a wide range of critical campus mobility services, and is designed to easily share rich contextual information with third-party business and IT applications in real-time. Aruba Networks ArubaOS 8 can be deployed as a virtual machine running on servers, significantly simplifying moves, adds, and changes in your infrastructure. This gives you flexibility to just buy the licenses you need and install the Aruba Networks VMC software to get started, without waiting for controller hardware. Aruba Networks Mobility Master is the next generation of master controller that runs ArubaOS 8 and is deployed as a virtual machine or hardened server appliance for more memory and compute power. With the Aruba Networks Mobility Master, major ArubaOS 8 features can be updated via software without requiring any planned network outages.

Analytics

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.

Clearpass

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.

Features

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 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.
