Aruba Central

What is Aruba Central?

Aruba Central is a cloud-native management console for all Aruba network infrastructure. As the single point of visibility and control for Aruba ESP (Edge Services Platform), Aruba Central delivers AIOps, workflow automation, and advanced security features across campus, branch, data center, and remote work environments.

Why Should You Use the Connector?

The Aruba Central connector provides visibility into the network assets in your environment. You can use this visibility to:

  • ensure network assets are managed per your security policies

  • derive relationships between network assets, locations, users, applications, and data

How Does This Connector Work?

Lucidum executes read-only requests to the Aruba Central REST API and ingests only meta-data about Aruba Central devices. Lucidum does not retrieve any data stored on your assets.
