Aruba launches new WorkSpace software
Riyadh, April 16, 2013
Aruba Networks, a leading provider of next-generation network access solutions for the mobile enterprise, has launched a new software that helps customers eliminate the high capital and resource costs of disparate BYOD systems.
Aruba WorkSpace is a new component of the company’s ClearPass Access Management System.
With the addition of Aruba WorkSpace, for the first time, Network Access Control (NAC), Mobile Device Management (MDM) and Mobile Application Management (MAM) systems are a part of one solution and work together to secure company data and reduce BYOD helpdesk costs.
“With mobile device and application proliferation accelerating at an unprecedented pace, IT departments simply need a solution that eliminates the extra work and expense associated with bridging the silos across the network, the device and the application,” said Ammar Enaya, General Manager of Aruba Networks, Middle East.
“By integrating our core strength for network access control and security we can streamline the BYOD process and take the burden and risk away from the IT department”.
Underscoring the critical need for user privacy, a recent Mobile Device Security Survey commissioned by Aruba revealed that 56 per cent in Saudi Arabia who bring personal devices to work would feel ‘angry’ if they found out that their IT department had accessed personal data stored on their device.
Of these 50 per cent of Saudi respondents say they wouldn’t immediately report the loss of these devices to their IT department; this presents a significant security concern for enterprise IT.
With Aruba WorkSpace, the combination of MDM, MAM and NAC capabilities integrated into one platform allows IT to secure sensitive corporate data on these personal mobile devices without the high cost, significant resource investment, and potential loss of user privacy and productivity that can result from existing BYOD solutions, he added.-TradeArabia News Service
