Fontech, the technology arm of Fon and leader in WiFi software, has launched Enterprise Control Solution for the management of wireless network access security.

The solution is designed to enable enterprises the authority over which users and devices are connecting to their networks in real time. 

Fontech said that the solution provides an intuitive self-onboarding portal for employees that allows them to configure their devices to access WPA2-Enterprise networks, guaranteeing easy and secure access to WiFi. Fontech’s Enterprise Control Solution also includes a user-friendly admin portal for configuration and management of the service. 

Network access is controlled with RADIUS-based policy enforcement that includes both user and device-based policies, and supervised through monitoring tools provided for network administrators. The solution can be integrated with multiple directory services, including LDAP, Active Directory, G-Suite, and Office 365 or any other providers such as JumpCloud, OneLogin, and Auth0.

In addition to controlling the access of regular users, the solution offers a Guest WiFi module that facilitates the management of visitors connecting to wireless networks. This can be done via invitation through WPA2-Enterprise as well as through a customizable captive portal, so sharing passwords on paper becomes a thing of the past.

Alex Puregger, CEO, Fon
Businesses are widely adopting mobile-first strategies and opening up their networks to new users and their devices. However, a large majority of these enterprises lack the budget and expertise to deliver the necessary security to support this activity. They require third-party network security provision, which is why we have created Enterprise Control Solution.
