Improvements to My Organization

I’ve designed and implemented ClearPass for several enterprises that were looking for a compete NAC and guest management solution. ClearPass was the best fit to address different client requirements and tailor the security access policy based on their needs.

Room for Improvement

Reporting module has room for improvement. It also need integration with SIEM solutions and Next Generation Firewalls.

Use of Solution

We've used it for three years.

Deployment Issues

There are a few issues here and there but they're not worth mentioning.

Customer Service and Technical Support

It's very good.

Initial Setup

It depends on the scenario, but if the use cases and prerequisites were defined correctly before the implementation then it will be easier to implement.

Implementation Team

I started with an in-house implementation and consulted the vendor team when it’s required.

Other Solutions Considered

ClearPass has competitors, but it has kept its leadership position within the Magic Quadrant for the last three years.

Other Advice

I would advise you to at least include ClearPass in any PoC.

Disclosure: My company has a business relationship with this vendor other than being a customer: We are a tier one platinum Partner.
