Aruba today announced that its ClearPass family of identity-based access control security solutions has been recognized for its ability to reduce risk by insurers in the Cyber CatalystSM program created by Marsh. Cyber Catalyst by MarshSM is a cybersecurity evaluation program in which participating insurers independently evaluate cybersecurity products and solutions to identify those that they believe have the ability to reduce cyber risk.
Products that receive the Cyber Catalyst designation undergo a rigorous, multi-stage evaluation process in which each of the participating insurers assess the cybersecurity solutions’ ability to reduce cyber risk, while meeting key practical considerations such as ease of deployment and ongoing management requirements. A majority voted to designate Aruba ClearPass as a Cyber Catalyst solution for its ability to provide full-spectrum visibility, combined with role- and device-based secure network access control for IoT, BYOD, corporate devices, as well as employees, contractors and guests. Whether deployed alone or used in conjunction with Aruba PEF, ClearPass helps customers adopt a Zero Trust posture to mitigate the risks associated with the explosive growth in attacks targeting IoT devices and users connecting to the network. This approach can also support organizations who are looking to implement a SASE approach to protecting its operations. To further reduce security complexity, while strengthening enforcement functions, ClearPass integrates with an ecosystem of 150+ third-party solutions across a broad range of security capabilities.
“The Cyber Catalyst designation signals that leading insurers believe Aruba ClearPass can help reduce cyber risk, and strongly merits consideration by organizations who seek solutions that yield meaningful improvements in cyber risk outcomes,” said Tom Reagan, US Cyber Practice leader at Marsh. “This class of Cyber Catalyst solutions are designed to address the cyber risks that organizations face today and, together with the 2019 designees, comprise a roster of more than 30 cybersecurity products insurers believe can be highly effective against cyber threats
