Authentication VLAN Solution
Authentication VLAN provides authentication to devices attached to LAN ports, which protects an enterprise's intranet from unauthorized operation and threats.
Authentication VLAN is a high-level security solution to detect and block unauthorized users and computers from LAN. Moreover, it is possible to set network access authority based on the staff types, for example, full-time staff, temporary staff, and alliance partner. In this way, it significantly heightens the security of confidential information.
Features & Benefits
Authentication VLAN is to solve the following problems, and realize the access control user by user. It ensures the security at the gateway of network by the authentication from each port.
- To Strengthen Security at the Gateway of Network
Realizing security at network infrastructure level (layer 2 level), which will not be realized by applications. As those unauthorized users are blocked from the switch ports when authentication fails, it assures security, and at the same time, it eliminates those unnecessary network traffic.
- Flexible Access Control
Flexibly responding to layout change because the authentication is based on devices instead of physical ports. It is a secure and flexible user authentication on switch.
- Perfect Security
Possible to use IC card or finger print authentication device as a combination to enhance the security level.
- 802.1x Authentication
IEEE802.1x authentication (802.1x authentication) makes it possible to block those accesses from unauthenticated users. Switches supporting 802.1x authentication will only permit the traffic to network from those authorized users, and block those guest users or unauthorized users.
