How to set up secure Wi-Fi for BYOD environments
Deploying the enterprise mode of Wi-Fi Protected Access (WPA2) with 802.1X authentication provides great Wi-Fi security, but complicates client configuration and connection.

The solution is to deploy an automated configuration process so users can easily connect their devices without invention from IT staff. In this review, we looked at three tools to help distribute Wi-Fi and 802.1X settings to users: ClearPass QuickConnect from Aruba, XpressConnect from CloudPath, and the open source SU1X.
