Campus Network Assurance

IT needs to improve network availability and performance as employees and customers demand a high-quality experience every time they connect to the network.

  • Identify and solve network issues faster and even avoid issues as the network can provide real-time analytical capability.
  • Provide network visibility and assurance across the entirety of the campus infrastructure from a single pane of glass.
  • Monitor the network and identify unusual behavior for security or performance mitigation with enterprise-scale artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML).

Scalable Access

Security policies should be different depending on the user, device they use or thing. A secure access network can automatically recognize and apply policies through the organization.

  • Provides the ability to connect an increasing number of device types
  • Create and implement dynamic security capabilities by user, device and application
  • These policies can be automatically implemented in conjunction with segmentation capabilities
  • Dramatically reduce security risk associated with network access, both wired and wireless
