Brocade announces availability of Ruckus Cloudpath ES 5.0 software


Brocade announced the availability of Ruckus Cloudpath ES 5.0 software.

The new release builds on previous BYOD onboarding capabilities to create integrated security and policy management platform.

Cloudpath ES 5.0 software enables IT organizations of any size to easily establish secure, policy-based access for wired and wireless devices.

According to IDC, the U.S. mobile worker population will grow at a steady rate over the next five years, increasing from 96.2 million in 2015 to 105.4 million mobile workers in 2020.

“The rise of a more mobile workforce has mandated that corporations to adopt robust BYOD programs, which ensure productivity both in and out of the workplace,” said Nolan Greene, senior research analyst, IDC.

“However, many organizations, especially those with lean IT departments, still struggle with securing device connections to the network. Organizations are therefore tasked with finding a solution that not only enables the mobile workforce, but also provides enterprise-level security, something Ruckus Wireless seeks to deliver to its customers.”

Brocade said organizations expect frictionless BYOD and a common wireless-wired policy and security experience. But IT is often unable to deliver on those expectations due to the inherent complexity of modern security infrastructure.

Cloudpath software simplifies the deployment of enterprise-grade security, making powerful security much more accessible to lean IT teams.

“Before Cloudpath, we struggled with authentication, provisioning, securing and connecting both our students’ and teachers’ wireless devices across our 11 sites in both California and Washington,” said Bryant Wong, chief technology officer, Summit Public Schools. “After the deployment of Cloudpath, it was seamless. It just works.”
