Enterasys Mobile IAM [PDF link] is “BYOD Done Right,” a comprehensive BYOD solution that provides total security, full IT control and predictable network experience for all users. Mobile IAM addresses IT challenges being driven by today’s enterprise and campus mobility imperatives providing end-to-end visibility and control over individual users, devices and applications, in multi-vendor infrastructures. It provides complete software for: identity, access and inventory management, context-based policy enforcement, end-to-end management from a single, easy-to-use management application, auditing and reporting.

Designed to be implemented with no additional IT staffing, the Mobile IAM appliance provides enterprise IT complete control and visibility into their BYOD environments for just $8 per device. The complete scope of professional services guarantees a typical 3,000-device deployment in a 10-day timeframe, three times faster than any other competing deployments.

Enterasys Mobile IAM is an innovative solution which addresses critical customer needs by providing:

– A single solution for corporate owned and user owned devices
– Device-, User- and Location-specific network and application access
– Granular enforcement of policies based upon user and device profiles
– One-step access to the network without the need for portals
– Automation of policy and provisioning capabilities

Based on award-winning innovation, Enterasys Mobile IAM is powered by the Enterasys Centralized Adaptive Provisioning Engine, which delivers granularity and control by tracking over 50 attributes in real time. The Enterasys Mobile IAM Appliance includes the following key features:

Auto Discovery: Automatic discovery and provisioning of users, devices and access location.

Multi-Level Device Profiling:  The ability to automatically detect device types based upon not only OS (e.g. Apple iOS), but also the device type (e.g., iPad).

Flexible Onboarding: As enterprises increasingly provide employees with their choice of devices, they need the ability to manage multi-vendor networks. Mobile IAM supports multi-vendor networks, giving users a variety of options for devices and operating systems.

Context-Based Policy Management: Helps users enforce granular policies to ensure optimal usage of network resources and application capacity while providing end-to-end visibility of employees, guests, devices, and location usage.

Guest Access Management: Provides context-based policy enforcement and end-to-end management, as well as auditing and reporting on guest access.

Physical and Virtual offerings: EnterasysMobile IAM is also offered as virtual appliance.
