About Us

HPE Aruba Networking's 20-year history has been marked by the vision to think differently. And while that has led to innovative technology, our mission has been about one thing - creating the connections that power businesses and the world. And we're just getting started.

A reshaped security and networking landscape

The perimeter has dissolved. With hyper-distributed organizations and hybrid work models, people and devices are operating in multiple contexts - all of which must be securely connected.

  • Security vs. performance: IT teams face the growing need to reconcile easily available network connectivity for users and devices - no matter where they are - with locking down the infrastructure to protect the organization. How do you balance the business' security needs with flexibility and productivity?
  • Complex compliance: Regional regulatory and industry-specific cybersecurity, data privacy, and risk management requirements present ongoing challenges for network and security teams to keep up with. Is your organization security complaint?
  • Too many tools: Security ecosystems are becoming increasingly complex. Management is an endless task leading to overwhelming amounts of data. So how can you simplify and gain greater visibility and control?
  • Bringing teams together: Network and security teams are looking to enhance collaboration as they pursue common goals for protection and innovation. But without exception, the goals of both teams must be satisfied. How can your network align connectivity and security goals?
