Avaya secures mobile collaboration and BYOD

Avaya Identity Engines 8.0 enables organizations to provide employees and guests with secure, controlled access to wired and wireless networks from their personal devices.

Enterprises need to know who is accessing their network and how—whether it is with laptops, desktop computers, smartphones or iPad devices. Avaya Identity Engines 8.0 introduces two significant new capabilities that help eliminate the security risks of personal devices on a corporate network and enable enterprises to grant secure, flexible network access to individual users and their devices.

Ignition Access Portal delivers a unified access experience for both wired and wireless users. It simplifies the administration of BYOD with auto-registration and device fingerprinting capabilities, providing IT staff with detailed visibility into the type and profile of devices on the network and allowing them to act accordingly. Access Portal can be customized and deployed throughout the network and across geographical locations based on the needs of the enterprise.

Ignition CASE Client automates the configuration of devices for secure network access. It is a dissolvable client that helps ensure that devices meet specific security requirements before being allowed onto the network, and configures them without revealing the necessary certificates or shared keys to users. This is particularly useful when business partners with unmanaged laptops need secure but limited access to network resources, for example—the laptops can be configured automatically in seconds and the CASE client disappears from the user’s equipment.

These new capabilities build on Avaya Identity Engines’ existing security and policy features to deliver a cost-effective way for organizations to manage identity and network access for employees, guests and an ever-growing assortment of devices in the enterprise.
