With ClearPass Solution, Aruba Demonstrates Completeness of Vision and Ability to Execute

SUNNYVALE, Calif. – December 17, 2013 – Aruba Networks, Inc. (NASDAQ: ARUN), a leading provider of next-generation network access solutions for the mobile enterprise, today announced that in Gartner Inc.’s latest “Magic Quadrant for Network Access Control” report, Aruba has been positioned in the leaders quadrant for the first time.

This year’s “Magic Quadrant for Network Access Control” notes the substantial impact of the Bring-Your-Own-Device (BYOD) trend on the Network Access Control (NAC) market.  As always, Gartner evaluates vendors based on two criteria: completeness of vision and ability to execute, and includes a summary of each vendor, as well as an assessment of each vendor’s strengths and weaknesses. In the latest report, Aruba and its ClearPass Network Access System were moved into the leaders quadrant.

“We are pleased that Gartner has recognized Aruba as a Leader this year,” said Keerti Melkote, Chief Technology Officer, Aruba Networks. “We believe this recognition reflects the significant inroads that Aruba has made in the NAC market. As enterprises have continued to search for ways to better accommodate the BYOD trend, our ClearPass solution has gained significant traction. With its ability to securely provision and onboard mobile devices while reducing the burden and cost on IT departments, ClearPass has quickly become a popular choice for a wide range of enterprises. We consider our movement into the leaders quadrant of the latest Gartner ‘Magic Quadrant for Network Access Control’ a testament to our progress.”
