  • Role-based administration of guests

    GuestManager, in conjunction with the overall Aerohive solution, enables granular management of different types of guest roles, while the HiveAPs can enforce different security, QoS, or segmentation requirements based upon roles communicated to them from GuestManager. This enables, for example, contractors to get extended access to a network and a visitor to get access for only a few hours. This functionality also enables contractors to get access to different network resources, while visitors may be allowed to access only the Internet.

  • GuestManager and the Aerohive guest access solution

    In order to enable guest access to a corporate network securely with the least operational effort, an entire guest solution must be in place. The chart below shows the key requirements and how Aerohive provides a complete solution.

  • Guest account creation and management

    GuestManager also provides flexible guest account management, allowing guest access and accounts to be audited, canceled, or tracked. The creation of guest accounts enables an enterprise to set up a system that matches the security and operational goals of the enterprise.

  • Single centralized instance for guest authentication

    GuestManager runs on Radius so it can be used to authenticate guests on wired portals as well as wireless portals and enables an entire multi-site enterprise to use a single instance or regionalized instance of the platform to cover an entire company or just one part of it.

  • Delivered as an appliance

    GuestManager is delivered as an appliance to ease deployment and maintenance of guest services. The GuestManager appliance has been "hardened" or secured against malicious attack and vulnerabilities are fixed as the system is upgraded.

  • Delivered as an appliance

GuestManager is a central resource in the network that acts as a Radius server for guest access. Authorized employees access an intuitive web interface to register guest accounts. Guests use the credentials provided to authenticate through the captive web portal on a HiveAP. If authorized, the guest can access the guest VLAN or tunnel which drops them onto the Internet. If there are multiple types of guests like contractors, consultants, and visitors, they can be placed on separate networks with different policies.

Aerohive Networks GuestManager is a guest account management and authentication server that completes Aerohive's robust and secure guest access solution. In combination with HiveAPs, the GuestManager enables guest users to be simply and securely authorized for access to a guest network. Aerohive GuestManager makes it simple for authorized employees to create guest accounts while keeping the guest network secure by authenticating and reporting on all guest users.
