To better handle business critical mobility and emerging IoT connectivity requirements organizations need/want to simplify IT operations, secure access, and have visibility to EVERYTHING that is on their network. This session will show how to do this on any manufacturers network.

What if you never had to configure a switch or a switch port again? Do you know EVERYTHING that is on your network? Are you managing wired and wireless networks independently? These and other questions will be answered an demonstrated using Aruba’s ClearPass policy management solution. Dynamic Segmentation simplifies and secures networks by unifying policy enforcement across wired and wireless networks. Enforcement is based on intelligence gathered from ClearPass, Aruba’s policy management solution. The role-based policy capability, user firewalls, alongside rich layer 7 application visibility and integrated web content filtering allows networks to be set up without configuring ports and switches. With ClearPass as the overlay that ties together ANY MANUFACTURERS network infrastructure in the campus or distributed branch environments organizations save time and reduce errors with misconfiguration through policy automation. Improve traffic separation for confidential and guest traffic through segmentation. Gain better visibility with context into users, devices, applications, and network location through centralized policies. Policy here follows the user and enables a simpler architecture that requires minimal touchpoints and results in better segmentation. Come and see why Gartner, IDC, Forrester Analyst have all ranked Aruba’s solution number 1 above all others.
