The server's Ignition CASE Client is designed to automate the configuration of devices for secure network access. It is a dissolvable client that helps ensure that devices meet specific security requirements before being allowed onto the network, and configures them without revealing the necessary certificates or shared keys to users.
This is useful for business partner and guests with unmanaged laptops that need secure but limited access to a company's network resources, Avaya says. The laptops can be configured in seconds and then the CASE client disappears from the user's equipment.
List price for Identity Engines 8.0 with the Guest Manager, Access Portal and CASE client ranges from $15,500 to $66,000, depending on customer requirements and the size of the network. Customers with an existing support contract get 8.0 for free, though they must purchase Access Portal and CASE if they want those capabilities.
