SUNNYVALE, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Aruba Networks, Inc. (NASDAQ:ARUN) today announced that in Gartner Inc.’s latest “Magic Quadrant for Network Access Control” report, Aruba and its ClearPass Access Management System have been positioned in the leaders quadrant. This is the second consecutive year that Aruba has been selected for that quadrant.

This year’s “Magic Quadrant for Network Access Control” notes that the Bring-Your-Own-Device (BYOD) trend is continuing to be the primary driver for the adoption of network access control (NAC). As always, Gartner evaluates vendors based on two criteria: completeness of vision and ability to execute, and includes a summary of each vendor, as well as an assessment of each vendor’s strengths and weaknesses.

“As enterprises continue to search for ways to securely address the BYOD trend, our ClearPass solution has evolved to deliver important features and capabilities across multivendor networks,” said Keerti Melkote, Chief Technology Officer, Aruba Networks. “ClearPass enables contextual sharing and integration with third-party security solutions as well as integration with leading enterprise mobility management solutions. Being placed in the leaders quadrant of this year’s Gartner ‘Magic Quadrant for Network Access Control’ validates the direction we are taking in Network Access Control.”
