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.

The product as well as the admin panel is getting richer. Would love port-level access control as well as some more analytics in the admin panel. From what I hear, the team is actively working on it

Pros

Aruba ClearPass

  • wide range of compatible devices
  • have an easy-to-understand and hierarchical rule-writing structure
  • easy-to-use interface and extensive documentation
  • seamless MS AD integration

Twingate

  • Easy access management for cloud resources, better security than VPN or IP allow lists
  • 2FA via Google Login or OKTA
  • Easy to onboard external team members (contractors, partners, clients, etc)
  • Was easily approved by my partner security teams to use alongside their VPN client with no conflicts.
  • Zero-trust security is a must-have feature these days!
  • You pay for User, not Client or Resources--easy to roll out to all devices used by your users.
  • No more hassle of maintaining IP allow lists for WFH/remote teams

Cons

Aruba ClearPass

  • The user interface is extremely useless. For example, when you write Enforcement, in order to edit a rule above, you need to select the rule above and click the edit button below. In other words, its cosmetic properties should be improved.
  • The tutorials are good but not very detailed, so you won't find everything you're looking for. That's why you need to get training from a professional trainer. Further elaboration of training documents is required.

  • Windows installation had a small glitch, customer support helped quickly resolve the issue

Aruba Clearpass is straight forward in terms of day to day use for monitoring and basic user connectivity issues. The system is very robust on the back end, therefore some larger configuration changes may not be the most intuitive. System upgrades and license management are not the most intuitive either.

For the end-user, it is essentially an on-off switch integrated with our Identify Protection Solution

We had some issues with ClearPass integration with AirGroup on Aruba Controller Clusters. Basically, it was tough to get coordinated between the controller support and the ClearPass support.

From my experience, ClearPass has been the best NAC server of all I've seen. Even though configuration is somewhat hard and it's hard to get training, once you learn how to configure it it works very well. The policies are very granular and scalable and the interface is a well-done web GUI that does not need any extra plugins installed, as some of Cisco's product require. There are many more options than with FortiNAC, and many more integration options. Also, troubleshooting and logging is good.
