Microservices-based Cloud-Management delivers unparalleled flexibility, scalability and resilience to A3 Secure Access Management for Corporate, BYOD, Guest, and IoT client device onboarding, authentication, and network access control (NAC)
Aerohive Networks, a Cloud-Management leader, announced the availability of cloud management for its A3 Secure Access Management solution. A3 brings a comprehensive, yet simplified approach to Corporate, BYOD, Guest, and IoT client device onboarding, authentication, and network access control (NAC).
First launched in May 2018 as an on-premises solution, Aerohive now introduces a new deployment option for A3 with cloud-based monitoring and, expected in Q2, configuration for all customer sites, while localized tasks like device onboarding and access-control enforcement will be executed by on-site enforcement nodes. Like A3 itself, its cloud management is vendor-agnostic and fully supports Aerohive and non-Aerohive networks alike. In addition, the latest release of A3 includes significant simplification of key installation and operational tasks, such as a complete A3 platform cluster that can be installed in 6 clicks, as opposed to traditional solutions that require tedious, lengthy CLI-based configuration procedures for the same task. With the A3 cloud-management option, Aerohive continues to execute on its roadmap to simplify the Secure Access Management space.
“Aerohive’s entrance into the market was a direct result of the need to streamline the user experience and simplify day-to-day operations for IT,” said Alan Cuellar Amrod, senior vice president and general manager of Products, Aerohive Networks. “Now, the cloud-management option brings customers a whole new level of deployment simplicity, flexibility, and scalability at lower cost than competitive offerings.”
