Ruckus-Cloudpath

As some of you will be aware Ruckus Wireless purchased Cloudpath, a leader in secure and scalable onboarding solutions, back in October 2015.

Cloudpath is vendor agnostic, extremely customisable, it can be run as on-prem or cloud and it’s tied to the device not the user, but a user can have as many devices as needed under that single user license seat.

Cloudpath will solve a number of challenges that our tech team are asked by our customers including:

  • Admin wants user to experience 100% customisable captive portal pages
  • Wants users on the network securely – DPSK can be too much of a hassle in large user count networks
  • Admins don’t want to setup own RADIUS servers but still want Dynamic VLNA tagging – Not possible with just Ruckus Captive portal only with DPSK (see issue number 2) Cloudpath does allow for D-VLAN tagging.
  • Admins want to push certificates out to user for SSL web decryption automatically – tricky to do in a BYOD deployment without Cloudpath – MDM can do this but users don’t want to enroll own device in MDM solution
  • Admins don’t want jailbroken iOS devices or root Android devise on the network – NAC controller over BYOD etc.
  • We’re currently offering one-on-one webinars to introduce people to the solution. These will be taken by our in-house engineers and will be customised to your workplace.

    If you would like to attend one of our webinars, email ruckus@net-ctrl.com.

    As mentioned above Cloudpath is vendor agnostic, so even if you don’t have Ruckus, but are interested in the solutions, please do let us know.

    Below is a bit more information about the solution. Any questions, please ask.

    Cloudpath ES provides a simple approach that unlocks the power of certificate-based Wi-Fi for an interruption-free user experience without the need for IT assistance.

    The built-in portal allows users to onboard a wide array of new devices in a self-service, automated manner. With support for issuing certificates via the built-in certificate infrastructure and from existing Public Key Infrastructure (PKI), such as Microsoft CA.

    The rich policy controls in Cloudpath ES ensure that every device is uniquely identifiable, provisioned with the appropriate certificate, and has the appropriate policy applied. Policies can be built using traditional mechanisms, like Active Directory and group mapping, along with powerful new mechanisms, including Google Apps for a seamless Chromebook experience.
