Features and benefits
Access Assurance offers a comprehensive and integrated perspective of the client connectivity journey, facilitating effortless problem detection and root-cause analysis. The Juniper Mist cloud records all client events, encompassing connection status and authentication outcomes, streamlining daily operations and promptly detecting end-user connectivity concerns.
Access Assurance utilizes X.509 certificate attributes for identity fingerprinting and augments it with intrusion detection and prevention data, including group membership, user account status, mobile device management (MDM) compliance, client lists, and user location. This combination allows for highly detailed and precise identity fingerprinting.
Access Assurance leverages user and device identity to direct the network in assigning specific roles to users and grouping them into network segments using VLAN or Group-Based Policy (GBP) technology. Subsequently, the service enforces network policies unique to each segment, ensuring secure and tailored access control.
Access Assurance empowers organizations with dependable and low-latency network access control, whether it's for a single location or a multisite deployment. Juniper ensures optimal response times by deploying cloud instances of Access Assurance in various regional locations, directing authentication traffic to the nearest instance.
By utilizing the Juniper Mist cloud-native, comprehensive network management platform, Access Assurance eliminates the infrastructure demands of alternative network access solutions from different vendors. This ensures uniform client experiences, regardless of their location.
The Juniper Mist microservices-based cloud architecture continuously optimizes Access Assurance with cutting-edge technologies. Regular bi-weekly updates, including new features and security patches, are seamlessly integrated without any interruptions or service downtime.
Access Assurance facilitates authentication services by seamlessly integrating with various external directory services, including Google Workspace, Microsoft Azure Active Directory, Okta Workforce Identity, and more. Additionally, it effortlessly incorporates external Public Key Infrastructure (PKI) and Mobile Device Management (MDM) platforms to ensure a comprehensive authentication solution.
The Juniper Mist platform offers full programmability through open APIs, allowing seamless integration with external Security Information and Event Management (SIEM), IT Service Management, and other platforms. This enables easy configuration and policy assignment, providing a versatile and adaptable solution for enhanced network security.
