Let's talk about how to secure your network and your corporate data in today's mobile world. Topics covered include policy enforcement for wired and wireless access, BYOD management, guest access controls for multivendor networks, and more.
Wi-Fi and network security fundamentals - Security is always a top-of-mind issue for WLAN deployments, no matter what business you're in. But it’s an issue that's loaded with acronyms, confusing terminology, and some degree of black-art mystique. This session starts with basic principles of cryptography and gives you a thorough understanding of how Wi-Fi authentication and encryption work to keep your network safe. You’ll also learn about 802.1X authentication, tradeoffs of different EAP methods, why proper client configuration is so important, and why Aruba believes that role-based access control is critical in a modern mobile network.
Securing the LAN: Best practices to secure the wired access network - Is your wireless network more secure than your wired network? In this session, we'll discuss how to use industry standard techniques to provide secure wired access. This includes using policies and RADIUS/RADIUS CoA to ensure that ports used for Wi-Fi APs, IoT devices, printers and IP phones are protected against unwanted use by employees, guests, and contractors. The days of dedicated ports assigned to VLANs are over! By using a 'universal ports tied to policies’ model, network access is based on dynamic enforcement rules. These techniques work across popular wired infrastructure from HPE, Cisco, and others.
Enhance network security with Multi-Factor Authentication for BYOD and guest access - Enhance your network security by introducing Multi Factor Authentication (MFA) into new or existing use cases. New threats, risks, and vulnerabilities as well as evolving business requirements underscore to the need for a strong authentication approach based on simple service delivery, choice, and future-forward scalability. Learn how to create time, location and event driven policies to trigger new MFA workflows. Managed or unmanaged devices can be leveraged using secure MFA solutions from a variety of 3rd party providers and when combined with SSO, provides a much simpler and secure user experience versus traditional two-factor authentication methods..
Aruba ClearPass Exchange deep dive: Improving end-user workflows with a rich ecosystem - As billions of devices connect to enterprise networks, IT is struggling to gain more visibility and control using multiple, disparate security systems and management tools. ClearPass Exchange fixes this problem by acting as a central decision point, providing context for a unified network access defense for wired and wireless access, and leveraging downstream security and productivity systems and context to improve end-user workflows and secure devices wherever they connect. Learn how to leverage ClearPass Exchange to deploy and use endpoint, access, traffic inspection and data visiblitiy solutions for mobile workfoce productivity and threat prevention.
Large scale, distributed access management deployment with Aruba ClearPass - Running or planning on deploying a large ClearPass cluster? See what others are doing in larger environments to improve their deployments This session is designed to help customers that run the largest and most demanding networks learn how to deal with multiple locations, 100k+ endpoints, and strict SLA’s. Come to this session to discuss architecture for distributed deployments and how to better design your install for high performance, high availability needs. This is the one session where we’ll include the most experienced ClearPass team members for what will be a highly interactive session.
Deep visibility to secure network access with Aruba ClearPass Insight - Mobility and network access requires a detailed window into reporting, monitoring, and alerting that helps you see and share connection data with management and other team members. Our latest version of ClearPass (6.6) includes a new InSight UI, a new configuration, and alert features. In this session, we will connect to Insight nodes that contain rich and live data to show you how to easily create reports that show daily connection totals, failed authentications, and information on all device types. A picture is worth a thousand words so stop reading this and sign up for this session!
TEN Talks at Airheads: Adaptive Trust Defense - In this highly anticipated session, your fellow security engineering professionals will have an opportunity to share best practices and the lessons they've learned from real-world enterprise deployments. Each presenter gets 10-15 minutes (including a brief Q&A) to discuss the topics they are most passionate about.
Getting the most out of the Aruba Policy Enforcement Firewall -
In this day and age, it's probably a good idea to get your WLAN ready for voice and video. And it's also a good idea to classify and prioritize web applications based on policies you set. Protecting your mobile devices and network infrastructure against outside or inside attacks needs to be part of the plan, too. Join to us to learn more about these and other functions of Aruba's policy enforcement firewall integrated to its access points, switches, and controllers.
Adapting to evolving user, security, and business needs with Aruba ClearPass -
After your successful ClearPass deployment, how will you know if it's still performing properly? In this session, you'll learn how to use our built-in dashboard, logging and trending tools to identify problem areas, and reasonable threshold levels related to authentications, as well as overall appliance performance numbers. See how to turn on and use proactive notifications before problems occur that can keep users from connecting. Hear about best-practices for operationalizing ClearPass as the growth of devices, authentications, and collected data increases.
