Public Profile

In November 2011, Avenda Systems was acquired by Aruba Networks Inc. The firm focuses on identity-based network access security and provides management expertise for customers set on solving identity- and device-related network access security requirements. The company's Identity-based access control solution delivers industry proven employee, guest and endpoint access management for multi-vendor wired, wireless and VPN networks. Avenda's flagship eTIPS solution is a scalable AAA platform that utilizes identity-based policies to manage access control, endpoint health and device authorization for wired, wireless and VPN networks. Users are granted differentiated privileges to control which network resources and applications they can access. Employee's roles, location, and the health of their computer can be used as determining factors. Visitors can be granted Internet only access if required. Partnerships with Cisco, Microsoft and top wireless vendors ensure that Avenda's solution fits into any network environment
