Secure and Automated Device Enablement

Cloudpath bridges the gap between enterprise-grade security and personal devices to create a Set-It-And-Forget-It™ Wi-Fi experience that allows BYOD and IT-owned devices to be on-boarded in a scalable, secure, and user-friendly manner. Cloudpath invented the automated, self-service Wi-Fi onboarding paradigm in 2006 and on-boards millions of personal devices each year.

Based on the belief that personal devices can utilize encrypted connectivity just as easily as unencrypted, Cloudpath utilizes standards-based security, such as WPA2-Enterprise, 802.1X, and X.509, to work with your existing infrastructure and provide full functionality with any Ruckus Wi-Fi solution. With customers spanning enterprise, government, higher education, primary education, and more, Cloudpath delivers secure, reliable connectivity across all verticals and around the globe.

Cloudpath was named Best of Interop for Wireless & Mobility and was a Mobile World Congress finalist for Best Mobile Identity, Safeguard, & Security Products.

Cloudpath™software brings standards-based security to diverse and unmanaged environments in a manner that is scalable and sustainable. From wireless networks with WPA2-enterprise to wired networks with 802.1X, Cloudpath ensures that users are effortlessly provisioned and connected to the secure network across a wide range of laptops, phones and tablets. 

The software provides a common point of entry for all new devices entering the environment, determines the appropriate security policy for each and provides automated, self-service configuration to enable that policy. It ensures each device complies with and is provisioned appropriately for your policies, today and in the future.

Cloudpath combines the low cost and ubiquity of the native 802.1X supplicants with the manageability and ease-of-use traditionally associated with expensive third-party supplicants. In situations where the native supplicant doesn’t fit your exact needs, the software has the ability to augment to provide the features you need, all in a minimally invasive manner.

Cloudpath Enrollment System

Cloudpath Enrollment System (ES) provides a scalable, standards-based security solution that greatly reduces management demands even in the face of the skyrocketing growth in the numbers and diversity of devices requiring varied levels of access to the network. ES also serves as an integral piece in protecting an organization from the increasing sophistication of cyber-attacks attempting unauthorized access and data theft, destruction or corruption. 

Unprecedented levels of automation and flexibility make Cloudpath ES easy and simple. It automates configuration for all major operating systems and segregates personal devices from those which are IT-owned while maintaining device-by-device visibility and control.

  • Multi-vendor solution ideal for any existing infrastructure in every vertical
  • Automated onboarding for all users, including employees, guests and contractors
  • Intuitive workflow engine for comprehensive policy-driven access
  • Distributes unique certificate per device based on policies
  • Built-in certificate infrastructure and RADIUS server
  • Automates EAP-TLS, the WPA2-enterprise gold standard
  • Supports guest use cases, including sponsorship
  • Differentiates between IT-owned and personal devices
  • Provides visibility into users, devices and policies
  • Integrates with Microsoft Active Directory and Certificate Services
  • Integrates with external LDAP and RADIUS servers
  • Integrates with your existing WLAN
  • Deployable on premise as a VMware server(s) or as a cloud service.
Multi-vendor friendly solution eliminates the need for expensive rip and replace scenarios.
Set-it-and-forget-it onboarding with minimal IT involvement
An all-in-one solution without module add-ons to drive up cost
Licensing per-user with unlimited devices for scalable BYOD usage
Certificate-based onboarding (802.1X) extends the highest level of security
Delivers self-service onboarding, with automated Wi-Fi and certificate configuration, for BYOD, guests and IT assets
Supports all major device types, including unique Chromebook capabilities, on more than 40 operating systems
Secure guest access
Cloudpath ES provides a complete guest access system to identify and onboard guests, contractors, partners and other external users. Cloudpath provides a full range of options for establishing identity and privileges, including sponsorship, email, SMS, social media, custom OAuth, voucher codes, as well as click-to-join. With control over access privileges and length of access, Cloudpath ensures external users are identified and onboarded without the need for IT involvement.
Secure gaming devices
Gaming devices, with a lack of WPA2-enterprise support, provide unique challenges, particularly for universities. While Cloudpath continues to encourage and assist manufacturers with adding WPA2-enterprise support, Cloudpath provides mechanisms today to help secure these devices through a combination of automated authorization and device registration.

Secure Device Onboarding and Cloudpath

Security and Onboarding

What it means:

It’s not 2005 anymore; there’s no reason that onboarding wireless devices shouldn’t be highly secure and simple. Ruckus Cloudpath software makes secure onboarding easy for enterprises, government agencies, and educational institutions.

Why you should care:

With billions of wireless devices and new ones hitting the market all the time, it can feel like the Wild West out there. Cloudpath lets you onboard both IT-owned and BYOD devices in a fast, automated way. Cloudpath invented self-service Wi-Fi onboarding in 2006, and onboards millions of devices each year. It uses standards-based security, strong encryption, and flexible policy controls to extend enterprise-grade security to every device coming onto your network.

Secure Guest Access

Security and Onboarding

What it means:

Secure guest access lets visitors use public Wi-Fi networks without compromising security for themselves or for the network.

Why you should care:

Public Wi-Fi hotspots are a great way to keep people in your venue longer and to improve guest satisfaction. But most of the time, public hotspots offer no security protection whatsoever, not even encryption. More and more users understand the security risk inherent to unprotected hotspots and, so, are more hesitant to use them. If they do, it’s likely to be only for a limited set of activities. This means you’re not getting all the direct or indirect revenues that motivated you to deploy public Wi-Fi in the first place.

Secure onboarding using Cloudpath software enables guests to securely and effortlessly connect to public hotspots. Guests onboard once and roam to any hotpot that is set up under the same roaming consortium. As soon as guests associate with the WLAN, they’re directed to a branded web portal, where they can choose secure or open access. With proprietary Automated Device Enablement (ADE), the device is secured in seconds.
