SAN JOSE, Calif. -- Aruba Wireless Networks (Aruba) today announced that its centralized wireless LAN system is the first in its category to receive firewall certification by ICSA Labs, an independent division of TruSecure Corporation.

With this certification, Aruba now becomes the only vendor in the industry that can secure mobile access based on accepted industry best practices for enforcing security policies in a corporate network. ICSA Labs' firewall certification is the industry's gold standard that all products claiming to have firewall capabilities must attain.

With this certification, Aruba customers have the added assurance that Wi-Fi access to their corporate networks will be reliably secured based on mobile security policies. A mobile security policy lets corporations define rules for connecting mobile users and devices into the corporate network over the air or over the wire. These rules, the most comprehensive in the industry, include:

1. User identity
2. Resources that the user is authorized to access
3. Applications for which the user is authorized
4. Location from which the user is requesting access
5. Time-of-day when the user is requesting access
6. Authorization of mobile devices being used to gain access
7. Integrity of mobile devices including checks for viruses and worms
8. Type of the authentication and encryption being used for access

"With the explosion of Wi-Fi within the enterprise, the need for a stateful firewall that can be used to enforce mobile security policies based on user identity is becoming important," said Brian Monkman, technology programs manager, ICSA Labs. "ICSA Labs, working with product vendors and corporate users, have developed the most thorough and rigorous set of accepted criteria for firewall testing and certification. This certification, like all ICSA Lab certifications, helps end users make informed security purchasing decisions for their organizations."
