Overall Satisfaction with Aruba ClearPass

Aruba ClearPass is being used across the organization; we use it for authenticating wireless devices and assigning users to appropriate VLANs by membership in AD security groups. It is used by more than 14000 users daily, with a mix of devices from iPads to Chromebooks to Windows PCs and laptops, with some personal cell phones (more than 3000 daily) mixed in.
  • It does a great job of authenticating users and eliminating the need for us to run multiple SSIDs to “manually” separate users.
  • Integrates well with AD to support assigning users to segments based on security group membership
  • It integrates well with our Aruba controller environment
  • 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.
  • It has simplified our SSID management
  • It has made it very easy for us to segment our network based on security groups
  • It was relatively easy to implement with the support of a VAR
We only looked at Aruba ClearPass based on the prior implementation of the HP/Aruba switching/routing/wireless environment.
Our HP/Aruba team has been stellar. Always there to support us proactively, worked hard to build relationships with the staff, really top-notch.

Aruba ClearPass is ideal in an HP/Aruba environment, and it works well with Active Directory as well. We use it in a busy enterprise environment with an average of 18000-20000 devices connecting daily. Our main applications are streaming video and audio, with other less taxing web environments in use, but most with significant animation.
