Aruba ClearPass Review

Its integration with existing tooling/databases improves efficiency and visibility.


Valuable Features:

  • Open standards-based Networks Access Control, 802.1x
  • Excellent API/third party integration module
  • Radius server features
  • Visibility reporting (see who accessed the network with which device, etc.)
  • Onboarding solution for BYOD

Improvements to My Organization:

  • Security of wired and wireless network increased significantly without any complexity for our user community.
  • Integration with existing tooling/databases improved efficiency and visibility.
  • Less components to manage (we phased out MS NPS, Cisco ACS).
  • Guest experience improved while "load" on IT lowered.

Room for Improvement:

How the licenses-in-use counting works in educational environments could be improved.

Also, appliance sizing could be improved, as the gaps from 500 to 5,000 and from 5,000 to 250,000 is too large. There should be 2,500 and 10,000 appliances as well.

Deployment Issues:

No issues with deployment.

Stability Issues:

No issues with stability.

Scalability Issues:

No issues of scalability.

Disclosure: My company has a business relationship with this vendor other than being a customer: I'm a Security Consultant/Pre-Sales Consultant working for a Security Network Integrator. Mobility, Network Access Control, NGFW are a few of the solutions I'm specialized in.
