Network access control for LANs and WLANs
Is your company about to take the plunge into the wireless world, or is it already in up to its neck? Time for network access control.
LAN and WLAN under one roof
Network access control makes the use of the business's WiFi user-friendly. It is no longer necessary to enter a long, unwieldy WLAN key when logging on. Instead, all user groups are authenticated and authorised on the WLAN controller in the most simple way possible:
Staff using a company device
Staff devices automatically authenticate themselves on connection to the WLAN controller by means of a certificate stored on the end device.
Depending on the network policy, they are then automatically granted access to the operational working environment and the Internet.
Staff using a personal device
Staff are taken to the captive portal when they connect to the WLAN with their personal device. There they can register their device and authenticate themselves with their Active Directory user account. Depending on the network policy, they are then automatically granted access to selected network resources (e.g. printers) and the Internet.
Guest and visitor devices
Guests and visitors are taken to the captive portal when they connect to the WLAN with their device. There they can register themselves and log in for time-limited Internet use by means of a text message or voucher.
