Cloudpath

Security and Policy Management for Simply Better Connections

The Cloudpath Enrollment System (ES) security and policy management platform makes it easy to deliver awesome experiences—for users, visitors, guests and IT. Protect your network by easily and definitively securing users and their wired and wireless devices no matter how tough the environment— while freeing users and IT from the tyranny of passwords.

Available as a cloud-managed or virtual instance solution and priced per user, Cloudpath software lets IT use one system to do what usually requires many. At the same time, it easily and automatically integrates with your existing access and network security infrastructure.

Put Passwords in Your Rear-View Mirror

Cloudpath ES software includes a built-in, comprehensive Certificate Authority (CA) that makes it easy for any IT department to create and manage its own Public Key Infrastructure (PKI). With PKI, your organization is protected by the gold standard in wireless security: WPA-2 Enterprise via X.509 certificates. Passwords—which make up the vast majority of most organization’s trouble tickets and create endless headaches for users — are just a memory.

Network Access Control: It's a Must

Certificates are one part of the Cloudpath security equation. Policy-based access control is the other. With Cloudpath ES software, IT can associate each device with a user and establish fine-grained policies for both. The software works together with policy enforcement points to make unauthorized access and persistent bad behavior a thing of the past.

Now, about those BYOD Devices

Just getting devices securely onto the network is half the battle for IT; bring your own device (BYOD) adds more time and complexity. What if users—even BYOD users—could self-onboard any and all of their devices? With the simple onboarding portal in Cloudpath ES, they can. IT can control the types of devices that are allowed access and ensure the requisite on-device enforcement, all while dramatically reducing service and trouble tickets.

The Missing Link: Guest Access

You've secured owned and BYOD devices, but what about guests and their devices? Cloudpath software includes comprehensive guest access functionality that secures guest devices just as easily and thoroughly as the rest, while providing abundant authentication options. And Cloudpath software is infrastructure-agnostic, so no matter the environment, you can treat all of your guests the same—or differently.

Certificate Authority Management
Improve network security by replacing unsecure approaches—passwords, pre-shared keys, MAC authentication—with certificates
Use multiple certificate sources including built-in Public Key Infrastructure (PKI), Microsoft CA and InCommon
Create a unique CA for each tenant, if you choose, in multi-tenant environments
Secure Access
Connect devices using the gold standard for security: WPA2-Enterprise via 802.1x authentication with EAP-TLS, PEAP access methods
Access Control
Push dynamic Access Control Lists (ACL) to wired or wireless infrastructure via RADIUS Vendor-Specific Attributes (VSA)
Perform automatic device posture check and remediation via dissolvable/temporary agent, ensuring that all devices seeking access meet minimum requirements
Self-Service Onboarding with Pre-Boarding
Empower end users to easily manage their own access and devices—and remove that burden from IT—with a customizable, self-service onboarding portal
Use “pre-boarding” to enable end users to onboard a device from anywhere the device can access the network—for example, allowing students to onboard their devices from home, before they arrive on campus
Simplify onboarding for all the devices in your environment—enterprise-owned, BYOD, guest and IoT
Policy Management
Implement granular per-user, per-device policies such as VLANs and application-based access to ensure a secure, high-performing network
Use Cloudpath software APIs to easily and automatically integrate with policy enforcement points such as switches, firewalls and content filters
Guest Access
Extend secure Wi-Fi to visitors of all varieties, onboarding guests onto WPA2-Enterprise wireless networks without IT lifting a finger
Implement a variety of traditional authentication and authorization options, including sponsorship and self-verification, as well as integration of secure Wi-Fi with external identity services, such as Google, Facebook and LinkedIn
Track guests across the network for security and compliance requirements and guest auditing
Reporting
Gain granular visibility into users and devices accessing the network, including when, how and for how long they access
Chromebook Integration
Distribute certificates to managed Chromebooks using the Google Admin Console
Simplify initial Chromebook setup with user-driven, IT-driven or distributor-driven approaches

安全设备加载和 Cloudpath

安全和载入

它意味着什么:

现在已不再是 10 年前;初始启用和加载的无线设备也相对需要高度安全和简单和安装简单。Ruckus Cloudpath 软件让企业、政府机构和教育机构轻松实现安全加载。

您为什么需要注意:

随着数十亿无线设备和新设备进入市场,让人感觉如同身处西部荒原。Cloudpath 让您以快速的自动化方式同时加载 IT 拥有的设备和 BYOD 设备。Cloudpath 于 2006 年发明了自助的 WiFi 加载,并且每年加载数百万的设备。它使用基于标准的安全、强大的加密功能以及以及灵活的策略控制来将企业级安全扩展到即将进入网络的每个设备。

安全访客接入

安全和载入

它意味着什么:

安全访客接入可以让游客使用公共 WiFi 网络,而不会影响自身或网络的安全。

您为什么需要注意:

公共 WiFi 热点是让人们在您的场地停留更长时间并提高客户满意度的好方法。但大多数时候,公共热点没有提供任何安全保护,甚至没有加密。越来越多的用户了解未受保护的热点存在的内在安全风险,因此,更不敢随便使用它们。如果使用,很可能仅用于有限的活动。这意味着您没有获得直接或间接的收益以促使您在第一时间部署公共 WiFi。

使用 Cloudpath 软件进行安全加载可确保访客安全而有效地连接到公共热点。访客一旦加载,便可漫游到在相同漫游联盟下设置的任何热点。只要访客与 WLAN 相关联,他们便会被引导至品牌网络门户,他们可以在这里选择安全接入或开放接入。借助专有的自动设备启用 (ADE) 功能,可在数秒内确保设备安全。
