built on standard technology

  • Provides a framework for users to authenticate via a central authority, such as a university‚Äôs directory services such as Active Directory, LDAP server, or other database
  • Enhances the security of WiFi networks that use the IEEE 802.11 standard, a technology built into most modern operating systems
  • Uses Extensible Authentication Protocol (EAP, RFC 2284) for credential exchange during the authentication process, which means no user-specific data* is retained
  • Enables remote user authentication and authorization to access a requested system, service, or network
  • Provides better security than other solutions and is the industry standard
  • Allows an organization to create central network policies that can easily be applied at a single network point
  • Simplifies usage, network, and accounting statistics
