Aruba NAC

This product is a feature added on top of their hardware line. The product extended the capabilities of the Aruba wireless product line.

ClearPass Policy Manager

Implementation was fairly simple

Still new but learning

ClearPass Access Management, ClearPass Policy Manager

Implementation was more difficult then expected with several missed milestones

Product was complex to install and ran over on milestones as a result. Reuired upgrades to several other systems to enable support for clearpass. CLI syntax is very sensative, errors resulted in severe service disruptions with SSL VPN. tech support not willing to assist as they point to Cisco ASA. Do not offer any guidance or solutions

ClearPass Access Management

Implementation was straight forward for most platforms, but some did not integrate.

Most of the TACACS+ and RADIUS integration worked well. Some of the platforms that support TACACS+ did not work and we had to implement RADIUS as a substitute. This is not necessarily all Aruba Networks issue as both Aruba and the device vendor need to properly implement the protocol and possibly to some integration tweeking to get interoperabilty.

Set up and customize anything you can think of with Clearpass and Airheads community.

We use Clearpass as a RADIUS-server for 802.1X authenticating ca. 2500 wired and wireless and checking the health status of about 600 devices. It also serves as a captive portal with sponsorship enabled. We initially intended to use Onboard for automatic configuration of BYOD devices, but we let that go because of the behaviour differences between mobile operating systems. Because of it's flexbility, Clearpass is very easy to integrate in a multi-vendor and technology environment. That flexibility also allowed us to set up a good working alternative for Onboard. The large and active community behind Aruba Networks (Airheads) allowed us to get in touch with experienced users quite easily which allowed us to finetune our system and gain experience.

Aruba works with Customer to implement Secure Wireless Solutions

The vendor worked well with us on the wireless deployment and even brought ideas to the table for our guest wireless solution.

A low maintenance cost effective wireless management solution.

The product was easy to implement, the 3rd party vendor was very knowledgeable and made the learning process a breeze. This software has been opperating relatively maintenance froo for a couple of years now.

ClearPass Policy Manager

Great way to manage thousands of wireless users and their privileges…

The vendor has been very helpful in configuring the CPPM service. We originally purchased it to support AirGroup, but have since used it to overhaul our captive portal for guest wireless. Overall, the product was pretty straight forward, and the feedback from the field has been terrific.
