GuestManager Enterprise WLAN Access Management

Aerohive’s GuestManager, offered as part of a complete Aerohive guest access solution, is a powerful enterprise WLAN guest access management solution that combines security with ease-of-use features. In combination with HiveAPs, GuestManager enables any authorized employee (e.g. lobby ambassador) to create an account via an intuitive Web interface, ensuring that guests can get the access they need while the network remains secure.

GuestManager, which is delivered as either a hardened network appliance or as part of HiveManager, acts as a RADIUS server ensuring authentication and reporting on all guest users. Different user types – such as contractors, consultants, or visitors – can be placed on different networks with access policies tailored to suit their requirements.
