Interop Show Management selects Cloudpath to provide BYOD automated enrollment to ensure attendees are connected, productive and sharing knowledge securely
NEW YORK, Sept. 30, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- INTEROP NEW YORK 2013 (BOOTH #625) -- Cloudpath Networks (www.cloudpath.net), the industry leader for secure automated BYOD onboarding, today announced it is providing automated, simple and secure BYOD Wi-Fi access to thousands of IT professionals attending the Interop New York 2013 conference taking place at the Javits Convention Center. With Cloudpath, event organizers have the assurance that all devices are automatically and securely enrolled onto the Wi-Fi network, while conference attendees have an easy-to-use way to connect, share information and collaborate while attending the four-day event.
To learn how Cloudpath helped streamline the BYOD onboarding at Interop2012, read this white paper: (http://cloudpath.net/document/XpressConnectES_for_InteropNet_BYOD.pdf).
"With more than 7,000 attendees, all of whom are experienced technology professionals with multiple devices, it is imperative that the initial user experience of connecting to the wireless network is highly automated, secure and professional," said Kevin Koster, founder and CEO of Cloudpath. "BYOD onboarding is often the first impression someone has with an organization or event, like Interop, so the process needs to be very clean and professional. At the same time, the network administrators need the automation and visibility to save time, maximize resources and ensure services are delivered with the utmost performance."
Cloudpath helps organizations embrace and manage one of the fastest-growing trends in technology – BYOD (Bring-Your-Own-Device). For the Interop New York 2013 event, a Wi-Fi enrollment system will be set-up using Cloudpath's XpressConnect platform. It provides a single point of entry for virtually any device, including mobile devices or laptops, which need to be connected within the conference hall and onto its wireless network. The system saves time and is easy-to-use by letting people connect their devices to the secure wireless network automatically without any assistance. This frees up administrators to focus on network performance and uptime.
Cloudpath provides BYOD onboarding solutions that embrace the continuous change in security, authentication and device configuration– coupled with adaptive administrative workflow – to streamline the entire enrollment/user lifecycle process. Its XpressConnect supports Microsoft Active Directory integration and guest sponsorship, as well as new social policy capabilities with LinkedIn, Facebook, Google and other external sources. It automates device configuration, (including WiFi, wired 802.1X, certificates, security settings and web proxies) and supports WPA2-Enterprise while maintaining security policies and segregation. It also automates EAP-TLS deployment for Windows, Mac, Ubuntu, iOS and Android devices using both an onboard PKI as well as Microsoft CA.
"Many of the people attending Interop also are responsible for implementing and managing BYOD practices within their organization, so this represents a great opportunity to help our colleagues not only understand the role of automated onboarding, but experience it firsthand as well," said Amith Nair, vice president, sales and marketing for Cloudpath. "BYOD is not just a network issue anymore. It's extended into CRM and HR, and how people perceive and interact with an organization. We look forward to an event like Interop where best practices, debate and meaningful conversation occur to advance the industry."
