Aruba's feature-rich Mobility Controller was easy to set up, quickly located rogues,
and both detected and classified attacks
SUNNYVALE, Calif., June 6, 2007 - Aruba Networks, Inc. (NASDAQ: ARUN), a global leader
in secure mobility solutions, today announced that SC Magazine awarded the Aruba 800
Mobility Controller a "Best Buy" rating for network wireless security. Chosen from among a wide
field of contenders, the Mobility Controller was found to be easy to install, easy to administer,
and the front-runner in terms of security capabilities.
"We found the Aruba 800 Mobility Controller running ArubaOS 3.1 to be a great product for
overburdened IT shops that want to spend more time administering and less time learning the
features of a new product," said Justin Peltier, a regular contributor to SC Magazine and senior
security consultant for Peltier Associates which conducted the tests. "The product is easy to
install and incorporates a large number of advanced features unique in this price range such as
VLANs, IPSec tunnel termination, 802.1X integration, roaming and advanced RADIUS
Aruba's mobility solutions associate security and access policies with individual users instead of
ports. This allows security to follow users instead of forcing users to connect to the network
through specific ports. Combined with stateful firewalling, access control, and client-to-core
authentication and encryption, Aruba's follow-me security extends enterprise security to roaming
users wherever they travel.
"The Aruba 800 Mobility Controller is packed with a wide range of standard security features,
but it is also easy of use, " said Vijay Raman, Aruba's head of technical marketing. "The SC
tests highlight the strength of our security and the broad range of threats against which
protection is provided. At the same time, the tests demonstrated the simplicity of the user
interface and the ease of integration with existing networks. We're delighted to be awarded
SC's 'Best Buy' rating because it validates that we hit the mark both on price and features."
