Aruba's Policy Enforcement Firewall module provides identity-based security to the mobile edge of the network. Where users are mobile, identity-based security is a requirement since users may enter the network at any point, wired or wireless. Aruba's ICSA-certified stateful firewall enables user classification on the basis of user identity, device type, location, and time of day and provides differentiated access for different classes of users.
