Alcatel-Lucent treats security as an integral part of switch and network design.
Security functions are embedded directly into our switching fabric, operating systems, management applications, and all interface directly with identity management. This improves security by delivering it at the first point of network contact and reduces security operating costs by allowing administrators to configure, manage and maintain the infrastructure more efficiently.
Integrated into the switch operating system (AOS), Alcatel-Lucent's Access Guardian combines LAN switch and wireless LAN controller authentication and access control features with standards based directory services. This method provides authentication, device compliance and access control functions directly into the hardware, distributing security functions closer to the user.
Access Guardian Benefits
Imagine one of your devices is under Denial of Service attack, do you know which device and how fast can you react to this threat? Alcatel-Lucent OmniVista 2500 NMS Quarantine Manager combines network management and network security into one application to defend against attacks just like this at the network and application level, isolating misbehaving users and providing a means for user remediation. It extends Alcatel-Lucent NMS benefits such as centralization and automation, and offers OneTouch automation for handling a security event once it is detected reducing the complexity of pre-configured alert notifications and containment rules.
