The Aruba Virtual Intranet Access (VIA) client is a secure VPN service for users who need corporate connectivity at home, temporary sites, or while they’re mobile. VIA is completely Wi-Fi-aware. From a non-corporate network – such as a home WLAN, 4G/LTE, 3G or public Wi-Fi network – VIA automatically launches a VPN-on-demand connection to the data center. Connectivity and authentication occur transparently with no complicated logins. VIA client software leverages the same role-based and stateful firewall policies for local and remote network access to ensure a consistent end-user experience, regardless of location. It can also be configured to allow separate access roles and policies on the same end point, depending on where the user logs into the network.
• Simplify VPN services by integrating directly with Aruba Controllers and Gateways
• VPN users can authenticate with the same credentials they use for WLAN
• Dynamically apply and enforce access policies based on the user’s role
