Aruba SD-Branch gets intrusion detection, prevention software

Wireless LAN vendor Aruba has strengthened security in its software-defined branch product by adding intrusion detection and prevention software. The vendor is aiming the latest technology at retailers, hotels and healthcare organizations with hundreds of locations.

Aruba, a Hewlett Packard Enterprise company, also introduced this week an Aruba SD-Branch gateway appliance with a built-in Long Term Evolution (LTE) interface. Companies often use LTE cellular as a backup when other links are temporarily unavailable.

The latest iteration of Aruba’s SD-Branch has an intrusion detection system (IDS)  that performs deep packet inspection in monitoring network traffic for malware and suspicious activity. When either is detected, the IDS alerts network managers, while the new intrusion prevention system (IPS) takes immediate action to block threats from spreading to networked devices. The IPS software takes action based on policies set in Aruba’s ClearPass access control system.

Previously, Aruba security was mostly focused on letting customers set security policies that restricted network access of groups of users, devices and applications. The company also provided customers with a firewall.

“But this IDS and IPS capability takes it a step further and allows enterprises that have deployed Aruba to quickly detect and prevent unwanted traffic from entering and exiting their networks,” said Brandon Butler, an analyst at IDC.

The latest features bring Aruba in line with other vendors, Butler said. In general, security is part of a “holistic” approach vendors are taking toward SD-branch.

Other features vendors are adding include WAN optimization, direct access to specific SaaS and IaaS providers, and a management console for the wired and wireless LAN. Software-defined WAN (SD-WAN) technology for traffic routing is a staple within all SD-branch offerings.

Aruba LTE gateway

The new gateway appliance is a key component of Aruba’s SD-Branch architecture. The multifunction hardware includes a firewall and an SD-WAN.

The device integrates with Aruba’s ClearPass and its cloud-based Central management console. The latter oversees the SD-WAN, as well as Aruba access points, switches and routers.

The new SD-Branch gateway with an LTE interface is the latest addition to the 9000 series Aruba launched in the fourth quarter of last year. The hardware is Aruba’s highest performing gateway with four 1 Gb ports and an LTE interface that delivers 600 Mbps downstream and 150 Mbps upstream.

Certification of the device by all major carriers will start this quarter, Aruba said.

Other network and security vendors providing SD-branch products include Cisco, Cradlepoint, Fortinet, Riverbed and Versa Networks. All the vendors combine internally developed technology with that of partners to deliver a comprehensive SD-Branch. Aruba, for example, has security partnerships with Zscaler, Palo Alto Networks and Check Point.

The vendors are competing for sales in a fast-growing market. Revenue from SD-branch will increase from $300 million in 2019 to $2.6 billion by 2023, according to Doyle Research.

Decision-makers may prefer Wi-Fi over 5G in retail networks

While fifth-generation wireless has taken the technology world by storm, many retailers don’t see a need to heed the hype.

Several use cases may glean immediate 5G benefits, yet 5G in retail is superfluous for now. Although 5G can support retail networks that require advanced capabilities, such as virtual reality, the retail world won’t depend on 5G because other wireless technologies are still efficient, according to a recent Forrester Research report. The report “The CIO’s Guide To 5G In The Retail Sector” explored particular retail use cases, and report author and principal analyst Dan Bieler discussed key differences between retail and other 5G use cases.

“Retailers are quite sophisticated in their existing technology understanding,” Bieler said. “They have achieved some great solutions with existing technologies, and they will not risk upsetting everything in the short term where they don’t see a clear [ROI] for making additional network infrastructure investments in 5G.”

Dan BielerDan Bieler

Retailers are interested in 5G for their networks, Bieler said, yet few have implemented or deployed 5G so far. Some retailers may seek out 5G as a replacement for existing MPLS connectivity, but this choice depends on pricing models and business requirements. Overall, IT decision-makers may prefer Wi-Fi over 5G in retail networks because not all retailers require the advanced capabilities 5G networks offer, he added.

5G in retail lacks transformative qualities largely because cellular technologies weren’t developed for indoor network coverage, and physical objects indoors can impede 5G’s millimeter wave frequencies and its line-of-sight travel capabilities.

The advent of Wi-Fi 6, or 802.11ax, may interest retailers more than 5G, as Wi-Fi historically supports more indoor use cases and networks than cellular technologies. Both Wi-Fi 6 and 5G offer similar capabilities, which makes them competitors in some use cases and complementary in others. For exclusively indoor retail environments, IT decision-makers may not see a need for 5G networks, Bieler said.

“[Retailers] can do a lot with the technologies that we have today,” he said. “5G will be a continuum rather than a completely revolutionary new technology for them.”

5G benefits
Aside from 5G in retail, the new generation of cellular technology has several benefits for all types of organizations.

Another issue retailers could face regarding 5G is customer apprehension. Despite 5G’s various new capabilities, customers don’t necessarily care about technological innovations and won’t alter their shopping habits because of 5G. However, customers in younger age groups may be more willing to adapt to the capabilities 5G enables, so organizations should focus more on how to win over older age groups, the report said.

Benefits of 5G in retail use cases, networks

Despite the efficiency of other wireless technologies, the report noted three main areas where 5G in retail can benefit business operations, including the following:

  1. Back-end operations, where organizations can handle work the customers don’t see, such as tracking and monitoring inventory within warehouses.
  2. Front-end operations, which are customer-facing operations and deal with tracking and monitoring products and people within stores.
  3. Finance operations, where the store can remotely track and monitor a customer’s product or service usage and charge them accordingly.

As 5G rolls out throughout the 2020s, more features and potential benefits for organizations will arise, such as network slicing and mobile edge computing. These capabilities can help organizations create experiences tailored specifically to individual customers.

“5G allows the retailer to track many more items and many more sensors in a store than previous cellular technologies, so they can have a much more granular picture of what retail customers are looking at, where they are going and what they are doing with products in the store,” Bieler said.

Other benefits the report cited include cost-efficient store connectivity, enhanced customer insights and improved transparency within supply chains. Organizations won’t glean these benefits for several years, Bieler said, as carriers will deploy new 5G features in stages.

However, decision-makers can prepare to deploy 5G in retail use cases by focusing closely on network design and determining whether 5G is the right choice for their operations. To evaluate this, organizations can assess their indoor connectivity environments and gauge how a 5G deployment could affect the business sectors in which the store or organization requires 5G access.

Overall, 5G has various benefits for retail use cases, the report said, but these benefits are not universal. Businesses need to look closely at their network infrastructures and business requirements to evaluate 5G’s potential effect on their operations. Regardless, Bieler said he was sure deployments of 5G in retail will eventually become common.

“[Retailers] will still adopt it over time because 5G will provide super-fast broadband connectivity,” Bieler said. “It opens up your business model opportunities in an easier way. So, over time, retailers will definitely embrace it, but not tomorrow.”
