ClearPass Policy Manager provides secure network access in a mobile world. It features ultra-scalable AAA with RADIUS and TACACS+ and a policy engine that leverages contextual data based on user roles, device types, app usage and location. The ClearPass Access Management System lets you create and enforce policies that extend across the network to devices and applications. This gives you total control over mobility services and a simpler way to rollout BYOD.
From one integrated platform, ClearPass enables you to manage network policies, securely onboard and manage devices, admit guest users, and even secure, distribute and manage mobile work apps. Best of all, it works on any network.
To reduce help-desk tickets and easily manage the influx of mobile devices, ClearPass offloads routine tasks to users through guest self-registration portals and personalised self-service employee portals.
ClearPass also leverages contextual data about user roles, devices, application use, location, and time-of-day to quickly deploy BYOD and streamline network operations across wireless, wired and VPNs.
Aruba Networks® developed ClearPass Exchange, a baseline feature of the ClearPass Access Management System, to address the need for comprehensive, adaptive security. ClearPass Exchange is the central decision point for sharing contextual data with a wide range of third-party IT systems, giving you the benefit of a coordinated defense where all components operate as one fully-integrated system.
As the gatekeeper for incoming access-layer traffic, ClearPass performs profiling, authentication and authorization of users and devices. In this role, the ClearPass server collects a wealth of valuable and authoritative contextual data such as:
- The identity of users
- The current status and posture of a device
- The location of the connected user and device
This contextual data is gathered from numerous internal and third-party systems through one-way and bidirectional communication. To simplify the sharing of context, ClearPass supports a wide array of APIs and protocols, including: SQL, syslog, XML, SOAP, SAML, OAuth2, and HTTP.

The ClearPass Guest product origins are from a product called Amigopod, which Aruba purchased and integrated into the ClearPass product suite back in 2012. Khipu Networks has extensive experience of all the product variants through to the latest ClearPass Guest solution, we have deployed across Universities, Hospitals, Schools, Councils and Retail organisations.
ClearPass Guest lets you give customers, contractors and other visitors secure guest access to wireless and wired networks. Whether you have 25 or 25,000 guests, you’ll create a rich guest experience and easily manage visitor access privileges.
Login and traffic encryption options for public networks are included with ClearPass Guest. Automated policy enforcement and quality-of-service controls allow guest access without compromising internal network security and performance.
We make it easy to create a customised guest web portal using your organisation’s logo and other distinctive brand elements. It’s equally simple to create unique data-entry fields for guest names, sponsors, email, mobile numbers and acceptance of use.
Self-registration, social logins and sponsor options ensure guest access credentials and privileges are enforced for all without burdening your IT helpdesk.
Engage your guests with targeted web-based content and advertising to promote mobile device apps, new products, and special customer loyalty offers.
