Aruba Networks Teams with Juniper Networks to Deliver Secure Enterprise Mobility Solutions
McCarran International Airport Selects Aruba and Juniper to Secure its Mobile Network
- Mobile Enterprises that require secure, standards-based access to networks and resources: With 802.11i now established as the proven security standard for a wireless LAN deployment, Aruba and Juniper deliver a secure standards-based enterprise WLAN solution. Aruba mobility controllers interoperate with Juniper Steel-Belted Radius Server and with Odyssey 802.1X Access Clients to create the joint solution.
- Distributed Enterprises that have mission-critical wireless networks in branches: Wireless is quickly becoming the primary connectivity method for enterprise branch offices where multiple mission-critical applications including data, voice, barcode scanning, inventory management, active RFID and asset tracking need to be supported. The Aruba 200 series mobility controller is purpose-built for such deployments and controls up to six access points and can be deployed as the sole network services device for a retail outlet by setting up a secure IPSEC VPN tunnel to any Juniper firewall/VPN device.
- Government Organizations: The Department of Defense's directive 8100.2 requires Layer 2 encryption for wireless deployments and Aruba and Juniper can deliver a complete FIPS 140-2 validated 802.11i solution today. Additionally, xSec, a FIPS 140-2 validated security protocol provides 802.1X and AES encryption as an interim step to enable 802.11i class security for wired and legacy wireless clients.
- Healthcare and Educational Institutions that need to provide open access (i.e., no encryption) for unmanaged wireless clients: Enterprises can protect information assets and defend against malware, worms or viruses entering the open access wireless infrastructure by ensuring that all unsecured traffic passes through Juniper's deep packet inspection firewall capabilities.
