    Wondering if someone can shed some light on the differences between these two products. We'd like to gain more control of our network and disconnect users that are downloading illegal software (for example). If you can pick just one of these products let's say...wich one would it be?

    ClearPass is a authentication, policy/authorization solution whereas
    AirWave is a monitoring and configuration product.

    To be able to disconnect users and assign various roles (such as a captive
    portal screen when someone downloads something illegal), ClearPass is what
    you are looking for.

    Thanks Tim,


    We have a meeting with a product engineer tomorrow as well - just thought I'd ask the airwave community before hand.
