Aruba ClearPass Device Insight Was Named a Winner in the CRN 2019 Tech Innovator Awards for IoT SecurityWe are pleased to announce that Aruba ClearPass Device Insight has won the IoT Security category for the CRN 2019 Tech Innovator Awards. These annual awards showcase major advances in technologies such as cloud, software, security, infrastructure and devices, honoring groundbreaking vendors across 38 categories.

IoT Adoption and the Expanding Attack Surface
The adoption of IoT has fundamentally changed the breadth and complexity of devices connecting to today’s networks, with many organizations struggling to understand the impact to the attack surface they are working to manage. With the growing ubiquity of Internet of Things (IoT) use cases, the adoption of IoT has outpaced critical security and compliance best practices in favor of improved operational efficiencies and business outcomes.

With this shift, IT and security teams are often unaware when, where and what types of new devices are being connected to the network. This lack of visibility prevents them from implementing key security and compliance safeguards. Best practices would require that each new device be onboarded and assigned a policy, but IT is often caught off guard.
