Cons
"The monitoring of Aruba ClearPass needs improvement. For example, they have monitoring for TECHx and you can find out what the administrator did. However, if Aruba ClearPass is managing GUI devices, you do not know what the administrator is doing.""ClearPass' interface could be more user-friendly.""The improvement can be in the cloud area. They can improve it for the cloud so that we can deploy it on the cloud.""Aruba ClearPass could improve the user interface, it is a bit chunky.""The technical support has some room for improvement. It takes them a long time to respond sometimes. I rate Aruba support six out of 10.""The GUI of Aruba ClearPass could improve, it is not user-friendly.""Lacks the ability to handle more than one certificate for both the management process and the Captive Portal.""The licensing model could be improved."

Pricing and Cost Advice
  • "The pricing is not bad and everything is included."
  • "It is affordable. In Lebanon, companies are small, and they do not have a big budget. They cannot invest a lot of money, and Aruba ClearPass is quite affordable for them."
  • "The licensing model is very straightforward. There are two types of licensing for Aruba ClearPass, a perpetual license, and a subscription. Both of them are straightforward. We don't need to read an ordering guide, it's very clear."
  • "Aruba is a little more expensive than other products in the market here."
  • "The price of Aruba ClearPass is expensive. When you want to build redundant systems it can be seen as necessary, so the enterprise will manage all of those costs."
  • "The starting price of Aruba ClearPass is 200k Hong Kong dollars. The licensing is based on the endpoints. For example, 100 - 500 end points."
