Clearpass Build in features

Hello i was wondering that if the clearpass the build in features you would not need to pay any license to have it? just the clearpass without license or any kind.

 

Ill explain with an example what im asking

 

For example

 

Let say i buy a clearpass with 100 license for guest only

 

Even if i buy it like this i would have the build in features such as

1-TACACS+ and RADIOUS Server

2-Clearpass Profiling.

3-Airgroup

 

 

Now if im right what other build in features i get or those 3 i mention are the only ones?

 

Cheers

Carlos

Re: Clearpass Build in features

If you buy ClearPass Policy Manager (virtual or physical appliances), you are entitled to the three items you are referring to; regardless of whehter you buy any guest licenses.   Basically, you can't "just buy ClearPass Guest"; you have to buy Policy Manager (and all that comes with it) and then add features like Guest, OnBoard, OnGuard, etc.

 

The three features you mention are included in addition to endpoint context servers (exnternal); including Aruba Activate, 3rd party MDM, and Palo Alto.

Re: Clearpass Build in features

Yes im aware of that...

My question was that if i could buy in the online configurator

putting just the clearpass policy manager which is by default... and putting 0 on onguard, enterprise, onboard, guest and i would have all the build in features...  but i wont have NAC, neither guest neither onboard if i dont buy the license per device.

 

Im asking this because if someone wanted to buy this just for guest access i could tell them well in addition to that, you would be able to run a tacacs+ server for your switches authentication and also having it as an NPS and have the clearpass profiling!

Sorry if I wasn't clear.  The answer is yes.   If a customer buys ClearPass for Guest usage; they bought Policy Manager as the base, so yes, they could use all those features too.


Also, each CPPM purchase comes with 25 Enterprise licenses; to use any of the other modules of your choice; 15 Guest and 10 OnBoard for example.
