Aruba ClearPass

We have quite a few visitors to our campus and we don't want to have a set PSK for the wireless so we have configured a guest network where visitors can create an account and gain access to the internet and we don't have to "manage" it since the accounts will expire after a certain time. We have RF scanners in our warehouses and we want them to be allowed on the network and be put into its own VLAN. ClearPass can do this flawlessly by keying off of the MAC address when it comes online and putting it into the correct VLAN. This makes it so we don't have to add each device individually to the system. The only time ClearPass would not be appropriate is in a small deployment where the cost to value wouldn't make sense.

Cons

Aruba ClearPass

  • We’d like to see some logic being applied to the VLAN assignment so that we could do it based on more than one condition - for example, membership in a security group and operating system.

Support Rating

Aruba ClearPass

Aruba ClearPass 7.4
Based on 5 answers
Support, unfortunately, is one thing that Aruba needs a lot of improvement. While some engineers are skilled, others have been quite low-quality. Engineers tend to not take ownership and one needs to keep calling to get a case moved forward in a timely manner. In my experience, many times an engineer owning my case would leave office and not be in the next day without resolving the case or handing it off properly. Licensing support in particular has been handled very poorly.

Return on Investment

Aruba ClearPass

  • ClearPass has streamlined everything so we don't have to have as many people managing our device auth systems.
  • Our Security team loves that ClearPass can deny unauthorized users and devices from the network. This alone has probably saved us a lot of money and headaches.
