Interoperability proven between Aruba WLAN and CounterACT

ForeScout Technologies : 11 November, 2008  (New Product)
CounterACT wireless integration kit now available as plug in enabling strong network access protection for wireless LANs
ForeScout Technologies announced the availability of its CounterACT Wireless integration kit. The kit consists of a software plug-in for control of wireless network controllers and access points and helps to ensure Wi-Fi clients connecting to the network are monitored, are in compliance with security policies, up-to-date with necessary patches, and free of malware.

"ForeScout CounterACT integration solutions help IT managers draw upon our product's rich network insight and access control capabilities without modifying their infrastructure or significantly impacting their end users," said Ayelet Steinitz, vice president of business development, ForeScout Technologies. "Our new wireless integration kit provides information about connecting devices through the wireless access points or wireless controllers. It detects and instantly blocks critical threats from gaining entrance through any wireless access point, and displays comprehensive information about the wireless access point on the host console: it is a highly effective solution for wireless network access.

Ideally suited for networks with mobile clients such as guest/contractor and employee laptops , the kit has a Compatible Partner interoperability rating from Aruba Networks, a global leader in wireless LANs and secure mobility solutions. Testing was conducted under the auspices of Aruba's Technology Alliance Program. Launched in mid-2007, the interoperability testing program helps to enhance the out-of-box deployment experience of integrators and end users."

"Aruba's Technology Alliance Program simplifies multi-vendor solution deployments by ensuring interoperability between Aruba's Wi-Fi infrastructure and the devices and systems with which it is used," said Andrew R. Harding, Aruba's head of partnerships. "Products that successfully pass through our program are easier to integrate because they've been pre-qualified and therefore simpler to set-up and manage."

The CounterACT wireless integration kit is available through local ForeScout representatives and supports the entire family of Aruba Multi-Service Mobility Controllers. The kit enables IT managers to capture a wide range of Wi-Fi client connectivity information, including Host IP and MAC addresses, wireless network SSIDs, wireless access names and locations, and client authentication methods.
