Aruba lead with a modern digital experience, this means that the network must be architected to support these experiences, from the edge-in, versus traditional vendors who designed with a legacy “network-out” approach.
Aruba are the leaders in wired and wireless networking. Aruba wireless access points deliver superb Wi-Fi performance and are location-ready – they can be deployed as controller-managed, controllerless (Aruba Instant), or remote access depending on the design, scope and scale of your wireless network.

Safeguarding against cyber threats now requires a multi-layered security strategy that includes the ability to detect and combat threats that have evaded traditional rule and signature-based solutions, while using legitimate credentials of compromised employees, contractors, partners or IoT devices.
IntroSpect detects compromised users’ systems or devices by using supervised and unsupervised machine learning models to see telltale changes in typical IT access and usage. When these subtle signals are aggregated and put into context over time, the presence of an upcoming attack is confirmed and alerted. Through tightly integrated bi-directional communication, IntroSpect then triggers ClearPass to perform a change of authorization for the entity in question. Once the threat is under control, an analyst can then turn to IntroSpect’s big data-based incident investigation system where the entire IT history of the entity under scrutiny—down to the packet level—is available in seconds, so that decision making and remediation is cut from hours and days to minutes.
