Why Choose Cloudpath Enrollment System vs. Aruba ClearPass and Cisco ISE?

Cloudpath Enrollment System is the clear winner over ClearPass and ISE

Failure to properly secure wired/wireless network access for BYOD and guest users presents a tempting attack surface for hackers seeking to compromise your data.

You might be considering Aruba ClearPass or Cisco® ISE as part of a layered defense strategy for IT security. Be careful or you might get more than you bargained for. More complexity that is—since Aruba ClearPass and Cisco ISE are both known for being complicated to deploy and manage. And more expense, too—multiple modules and per-device licensing. (Aruba recently moved to per-user for some—but not all—modules.) You’ll probably have to pay for an expensive professional services engagement to get your products deployed. On top of that, Aruba ClearPass and Cisco ISE slow your organization’s journey to the cloud by offering only on-premises deployment. Even if you have already deployed these products, you should consider Ruckus Cloudpath Enrollment System.

Unlike these two competing products, it supports multi-tenancy and gives you a choice of cloud-based or on-premises deployment. Cloudpath is by far the easiest to deploy and manage. Along with all-in-one per-user licensing, that translates into superior cost-effectiveness. Here is a competitive matrix that highlights the differences:
