Juniper Mist IoT assurance
Streamlined operations and secure network connections for IoT and BYOD
Juniper Mist IoT Assurance is a cloud service that enhances IT operations and ensures secure network connections for headless IoT and BYOD devices. It introduces innovative identity and policy vectors such as Multi Pre-Shared Key (MPSK) or Private Pre-Shared Key (PPSK) to simplify client device onboarding without relying on MAC addresses.
- Seamless onboarding for client devices without requiring MAC addresses.
- Cloud-based capability to generate, rotate, and automatically expire Pre-Shared Keys (PSKs) at scale.
- Dynamic traffic engineering for optimized network performance.
- Policy management based on key-based Wireless LAN (WLAN).
- Personal WLAN setup for individual users.
- Active tracking of device usage per PSK.
- Automated provisioning and rotation of keys.
Functions and benefits
Enable smooth device onboarding without relying on MAC addresses, while maintaining secure segmentation and policy control similar to traditional 802.1X authentication.
Using MPSK identity, IoT traffic can be directed either locally to an upstream access switch with a designated VLAN tag or tunneled to a Juniper Mist Edge located in the data center for secure transmission to the application server. In either case, the traffic is kept separate from the rest of the network, ensuring isolation.
By leveraging the Juniper Mist cloud-based WxLAN policy framework, administrators can apply network policy restrictions to client devices based on their PSK role. This enables IT admins to effortlessly grant IoT devices access to essential resources while preventing them from accessing any other resources.
Streamline Day 2 operations on a large scale by automating the expiration of PSKs. With a straightforward and efficient key migration approach, IT can regularly rotate PSKs without causing any service disruptions for onsite personnel.
IoT Assurance offers complete visibility at the organizational level, allowing IT administrators to have a clear overview of active devices associated with each PSK. It enables effortless tracking of currently active client devices on a specific PSK, and also provides the ability to display the top PSKs based on the count of active clients at present.
Simplify the integration of IoT Assurance with any mobile device management solution, facilitating streamlined provisioning of IoT devices. Additionally, it can be seamlessly incorporated into user self-provisioning portals for enhanced convenience.
Utilize Juniper Mist to develop self-provisioning PSK portals that automate the generation of PSKs based on user identity. This empowers BYOD workflows and leverages native SAML connectors for simplified single sign-on experiences. It enables effortless onboarding of client devices through methods such as scanning a mobile QR code or entering a personalized passphrase, eliminating the need for installing any client software.
