Make BYOD and IoT Wi-Fi Onboarding Simple and Secure
Your users have all sorts of shiny new personal devices. And they have high expectations about how easy it should be to use them on your network.
But traditionally, getting all those devices onboarded has been a huge headache for IT. How do you securely connect thousands of user-owned devices without exposing your organization to new security threats? And how can you make the experience a good one, without asking people to re-enter login credentials 10 times a day, or burying your helpdesk in password support tickets?
Ruckus enables an awesome bring-your-own-device (BYOD) experience—for both users and IT. Our secure, no-hassle onboarding solution makes it easy for IT to handle the influx and to ensure those devices have only appropriate network access.
Ruckus’ Cloudpath Enrollment System makes BYOD simple, seamless and self-service. Use a single point of entry to onboard practically any user-owned device, for any BYOD scenario—employees, students, partners or guests. With certificate-based onboarding, secure access is linked to the device, not just a user account. So people can onboard once and then automatically reconnect in the future—without having to constantly re-enter credentials.
BYOD shouldn’t mean “bring-your-own-security-vulnerabilities.” CloudPath ES brings scalable, standards-based security to any environment, using the gold standard for enterprise wireless encryption. Configure your policies for different types of users and devices, and CloudPath automatically provisions them, without any manual IT intervention. You can even onboard “headless” devices like gaming consoles, printers, and video cameras to your Smart Wi-Fi network just as easily and securely.
Thousands of different devices and platforms? No problem. Dozens of different use cases and policy profiles? Don’t worry about it. With Ruckus secure onboarding, it all happens automatically. And you can use it seamlessly within your existing Wi-Fi and security environment, at a fraction of the cost of expensive 802.1x authentication systems. No more trouble tickets for each new kind of device. No more password headaches for your users and your helpdesk. Instead, BYOD just works. And your IT team can focus their time and attention where it’s needed most.
