Cons
"The implementation can improve because it is challenging to explain some of the concepts to the client.""Like most security products, ClearPass is difficult to deploy. You need to use the CLI to implement security products from any vendor, so configuring the authentication is complicated.""ClearPass' interface could be more user-friendly.""Lacks the ability to handle more than one certificate for both the management process and the Captive Portal.""The initial setup was quite complex, it is not that easy.""The licensing model could be improved.""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."

More Aruba ClearPass Cons →

"I believe the solution is missing some great features which are present in other solutions like Aruba, UiPath, and Cisco ISE.""The hardest part we've had to deal with is trying to find some physical product recently as everything is going like hotcakes.""The solution could improve by adding more detailed information that customers have available on the dashboards."

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."
