XPerience Technologies announces the release of ClearBox Enterprise RADIUS Server 2.0, a simple-to-use Windows solution for wireless network authentication.
The new RADIUS Server offers completely visual control over user authentication in medium and large wireless networks. Wizard-based management of X509 certificates, an intuitive and completely visual user interface, and the ability to store user accounts in a database make ClearBox Enterprise RADIUS Server the perfect choice for managing corporate networks.
There are various models for user authentication in Wi-Fi networks, but not all of them are suitable for corporate use. Pre-shared passphrase, or simply a static password that is the same for all wireless users, is the simplest authentication method available. While usable at home and on smaller networks, pre-shared passphrase is extremely limiting when used in a corporate environment or when a larger size network is involved.
Granting access to a new user of a Wi-Fi network is easy, but what about revoking it? Employees come and go but changing a corporate-wide wireless password is not a productive option.
Corporate wireless environments require a dedicated authentication server that employs the RADIUS protocol. ClearBox Enterprise RADIUS Server 2.0 implements WPA-Enterprise wireless authentication in an easy way, while offering a variety of benefits compared to competitor's solutions.
Store Wi-Fi user accounts anywhere by choosing between a database storage or Active Directory. Use login and password to authenticate wireless users. Add or remove authenticated users on-the-fly from within a graphical user interface. Revoke access rights from any user or user group with just a few mouse clicks and without the need of propagating company-wide configuration changes.
ClearBox Enterprise RADIUS Server supports industry standards in secure wireless authentication. Supporting the PEAP and EAP-TLS protocols allows easy authentication of Windows wireless clients. Authentication profiles allow for several authentication databases with automatic choice of the proper one based on the user's domain, access point address or other criteria. The possibility of proxying authentication requests to other RADIUS servers allows authenticating wired users just as easy as the wireless ones. A built-in wizard for managing the X509 certificates makes it easy to create and install a digital certificate.
With numerous features and benefits tailored to the corporate market, ClearBox Enterprise RADIUS Server is a sure winner in usability when it comes to controlling users' rights for accessing corporate wireless networks.
ClearBox Enterprise RADIUS Server 2.0 runs under Windows 2000/XP/2003 and costs $599 (US) for a single-installation license. Additional information on the product, as well as its free evaluation version is available at http://xperiencetech.com.
