Aruba says the ClearPass Universal Profiler finds and "fingerprints" all IP-enabled devices on the network. It's said to be a tool that will allow IT departments to have complete visibility of what is connecting to the network. The ClearPass Exchange partners will provide firewall security, behavior analytics and deception intelligence.
"Due to increasing data breaches from IoT devices, customers are quickly realizing the importance of identifying all devices on wired and wireless networks for security and audit purposes," said Charlie Koehler, enterprise architect at Optiv, which is one of the partners. "Aruba's new ClearPass Universal Profiler will provide the first step in network visibility, which will allow our customers to make better risk assessment decisions. Comprehensive visibility can then be used for performance tuning and security policy implementation."
The 2540 Switch Series is a wired access solution optimized for mobile users that Aruba says can assign roles to the IoT devices that are connected to the network. Aruba made the announcements at the HPE Discover Conference in London.
HPE has used Aruba solutions in order to incorporate its IoT strategy and what it calls the "Intelligent Edge" -- a strategy elaborated on in a blog post by HPE CEO Meg Whitman, summarized here on IoT World News.
