NEW CLEARPASS INTEGRATIONS

 

Tenable Nessus Integration

Nessus has been around a long time and is a foundation tool used by many companies to identify vulnerabilities across many software products within an enterprise network. We’ve worked closely with Tenable to integrate our two products so that the contextual security and threat data is made available and shared. ClearPass can then use this data to make a more informed decision in how to allow/deny access for endpoints authenticating on the network. Several other use-cases exist along the lines of checking the last time a device was scanned for vulnerabilities, has a device every been scanned, etc.

 

MobileIron Cloud and Common Platform Services

We’ve had an integration with MobileIron for nearly 6 years. Recently they added a Cloud based platform for managing endpoints, but this utilized a completely different API framework than what we supported. This new integration add the support for the new API framework and complements the existing support for MobileIron Core with support for MobileIron Cloud R56 and above. As part of this release we have also added support for MobileIron Common Platform Services (CPS) which is part of both Core and Cloud but we have only certified support for CPS on the Cloud platform. CPS enables an almost-real-time feed from MobileIron into ClearPass such that endpoint additions/deletions/compliance changes can be updated within 3-5 seconds. Now ClearPass has an almost-real-time view of the MobileIron managed endpoints.

 

UPDATED CLEARPASS INTEGRATIONS

 

Check Point

The integration with Check Point is well established and has been available for nearly 4 years. During this time the integration was specifically for Check Point’s R77 platform plus the installation of some specific Check Point hotfix’s which enabled the integration. When Check Point released their R80 platform, they significantly simplified the integration, removed the need for additional hotfix-patches and made this a part of the core platform. This updated integration guide covers the configuration necessary on R80 and ClearPass to allow the sharing of User and Device context such that policies with Check Point have additional visibility to make more granular and real-time enforcement decisions. 

 

ENVOY Visitor Management

Envoy is a Visitor Management Solution we’ve supported for the past couple of years in addition to Sine Pro, TEEM LobbyConnect and TEAMGO GoReception. With this new integration guide we added some new functionality to the integration but more importantly fully documented the end-to-end integration in this V2 release. The overarching value here is we remove the airgap between visitor management and guest-access by automating account creation/deletion in ClearPass Guest on check-in/checkout.

WHAT WE WANT FROM YOU? 

We always want your feedback on the integrations we deliver, good or bad. What we want to hear from you is what integrations you are seeing or hearing in your accounts today. Recently we did a mini-survey across AMS, EMEA and APAC around Endpoint Security vendors. It gave us a great insight into how the regions differ, for example the vendors we think of as being #1 or #2 in AMS don’t appear or hardly make the top 4 in other regions, or another vendor who is #1 in one region don’t appear at all in another. Your input is valuable and helps influence our decision-making process about which integrations we should pursue next.

 

Finally, A big thanks to the ClearPass Engineering and QA teams for helping us release and update these integrations!
