Aruba, a Hewlett Packard Enterprise company

Empower your business with a new world of possibilities.

Aruba, a Hewlett Packard Enterprise company is leading the industry in wired and wireless networking. Its portfolio consists of best-in-class wireless, wired, SD-WAN, security and management solutions. Aruba offers a wide range of access points and controllers, switches, location services and management tools. Management of these solutions is possible in both cloud and on-premise.

Wired Networking

Aruba delivers next-gen infrastructure built on cloud-native principles. Performance, automation and analytics are central to support the businesses of today. Newer technologies and future business needs won’t go far with switches stuck in the past. Aruba’s portfolio is purpose-built for mobile, cloud and IoT.

Datacenter & Campus Networking

With the innovation of CX switches, Aruba has created a single OS (AOS-CX) for both datacenter and campus networking. Aruba CX switches reduce complexity by giving you one portfolio of switches that can be deployed with one operating system, one approach to management, and one operating model. The portfolio of CX switches is built for simplifying networking via intelligent automation, distributed analytics and an always-on infrastructure. This model reduces risks, improves efficiency and delivers a high-performance network.

  • Automation
  • Analytics
  • Availability


New tools and practices are needed to cope with rising complexity and to act with greater agility. Automation is an effective way to meet these needs. Aruba CX switches give you several ways to increase the level of automation by implementing options like Turnkey Automation, Event-Driven Automation, Network Overlays, Automation Frameworks and Custom Automation.


Every Aruba CX switch has an integrated Network Analytics Engine (NAE) that runs within the operating system. NAE performs intelligent monitoring directly on each switch, giving operators distributed analytics and actionable insights into network-wide health, without delays or loss of information. Using these insights, IT can detect problems in real time and analyze trends to predict or even avoid future security and performance issues.

 


Aruba delivers the always-on level of availability needed in modern networks. It starts with the AOS-CX network operating system, which is designed to maximize availability and resiliency.

All software processes run as microservices that communicate via the state database of the switch; there is no direct communication between microservices. Should a software process crash, the impact of that failure will be limited. The microservice will restart, access the state database, and quickly restore the switch to full operation.

Network Access Control

ClearPass

Laptops, smartphones, tablets and Internet of Things (IoT) devices are pouring into the workplace. With every employee now utilizing an average of three devices, the addition of IoT increases the vulnerabilities inside the business – adding to the operational burden.

Identifying who and what connects to the network is the first step to securing your enterprise. Control through the automated application of wired and wireless policy enforcement ensures that only authorized and authenticated users and devices are allowed to connect to your network. At the same time, real-time attack response and threat protection is required to secure and meet internal and external audit and compliance requirements.

The use of IoT devices on wired and wireless networks is shifting IT’s focus. Many organizations secure their wireless networks and devices, but may have neglected the wired ports in conference rooms, behind IP phones and in printer areas. Wired devices – like sensors, security cameras and medical devices – force IT to think about securing the millions of wired ports that could be wide open to security threats. Because these devices may lack security attributes and require access from external administrative resources, apps or service providers, wired access now poses new risks.

As IT valiantly fights the battle to maintain control, they need the right set of tools to quickly program the underlying infrastructure and control network access for any IoT and mobile device – known and unknown. Today’s network access security solutions must deliver profiling, policy enforcement, guest access, BYOD onboarding and more to offer IT-offload, enhanced threat protection and an improved user experience.

With Aruba ClearPass, you get agentless visibility and dynamic role-based access control for seamless security enforcement and response across your wired and wireless networks.
