Aerohive® Announces Microservices-based Cloud Management for its A3 Secure Access Management Solution
Microservices-based Cloud-Management delivers unparalleled flexibility, scalability and resilience to A3 Secure Access Management for Corporate, BYOD, Guest, and IoT client device onboarding, authentication, and network access control (NAC)
Milpitas, Calif. – January 16, 2019 – Aerohive Networks™ (NYSE: HIVE), a Cloud-Management leader, today announced the availability of cloud management for its A3 Secure Access Management solution. A3 brings a comprehensive, yet simplified approach to Corporate, BYOD, Guest, and IoT client device onboarding, authentication, and network access control (NAC).
First launched in May 2018 as an on-premises solution, Aerohive now introduces a new deployment option for A3 with cloud-based monitoring and, expected in Q2, configuration for all customer sites, while localized tasks like device onboarding and access-control enforcement will be executed by on-site enforcement nodes. Like A3 itself, its cloud management is vendor-agnostic and fully supports Aerohive and non-Aerohive networks alike. In addition, the latest release of A3 includes significant simplification of key installation and operational tasks, such as a complete A3 platform cluster that can be installed in 6 clicks, as opposed to traditional solutions that require tedious, lengthy CLI-based configuration procedures for the same task. With the A3 cloud-management option, Aerohive continues to execute on its roadmap to simplify the Secure Access Management space.
“Aerohive’s entrance into the market was a direct result of the need to streamline the user experience and simplify day-to-day operations for IT,” said Alan Cuellar Amrod, senior vice president and general manager of Products, Aerohive Networks. “Now, the cloud-management option brings customers a whole new level of deployment simplicity, flexibility, and scalability at lower cost than competitive offerings.”
A3 is enabled by Aerohive’s microservices based cloud-management architecture with native machine learning and artificial intelligence and also leverages Kubernetes containerization to ensure high performance, continuous availability for local, regionally dispersed, and highly distributed enterprise A3 deployments.
Pricing and Availability
A3 cloud management is available to A3 customers now, at no additional charge.
A3 itself is competitively priced, as follows:
- A base fee of $9,999 with an optional, add-on fee for high-availability/high performance clustering ($9,999 for 2 additional nodes).
- A tiered subscription fee, including support, with 1-year, 3-year and 5-year licensing terms. Subscription pricing starts at $7,000 for a 1-year license, with up to 1,000 concurrently active endpoints.
