Avaya Identity Engines 8.0, announced at Interop Las Vegas, makes it simple and cost effective for organizations to provide employees and guests with secure, controlled access to wired and wireless networks from their personal devices.
Avaya Identity Engines 8.0 introduces two significant new capabilities that help eliminate the security risks of personal devices on a corporate network and enable enterprises to grant secure, flexible network access to individual users and their devices: Ignition Access Portal delivers a unified access experience for both wired and wireless users; Ignition CASE Client automates the configuration of devices for secure network access.
These new capabilities build on Avaya Identity Engines’ existing security and policy features to deliver a cost-effective way for organizations to manage identity and network access for employees, guests and an ever-growing assortment of devices in the enterprise.
Avaya Identity Engines is part of Avaya Mobile Collaboration for Enterprise, an integrated solution for mobile workforces designed to provide business people with choices for where and how they can work.
“IT consumerization is creating a real headache for companies around the globe. Unfortunately BYOD has incorrectly become synonymous with mobile device management, which is only one part of the solution. Once a device has been on boarded, then what? How does one manage security, management, user experience, network flows? Avaya is the company that is stepping in with a true, holistic BYOD proposal that covers all the pieces,” said Zeus Kerravala, Principal Analyst, ZK Research.
