The Inverse team is pleased to announce the immediate availability of PacketFence v11.2 - a major release bringing many improvements!
TIP OpenWiFi Integration
PacketFence v11.2 now directly integrates with TIP OpenWiFi. TIP OpenWiFi access points are now natively supported network/switch devices in PacketFence with the ability to provision out-of-band subscriber service networks, IoT networks and secured networks.
Kandji MDM Support
PacketFence v11.2 sees its device management (MDM) integration nicely enhanced with the addition of Kandji. This next-generation and Cloud-based MDM allows you to centrally manage and secure your Mac, iPhone, iPad, and Apple TV devices while PacketFence can make sure the agents are correctly installed during the onboarding process.
Automated Integration Tests
More automated tests were added in PacketFence v11.2 through Venom. More specifically, integration tests were added for Fingerbank integration, inline L2/L3 deployment, firewall SSO, CLI for NAS logins and for the captive portal. These extend the automated tests coverage in PacketFence further to ensure greater quality and stability for each new release and help us continue our effort to shorten the time between releases.
… and more!
PacketFence v11.2 provides additional important improvements such as floating devices support for Brocade/Ruckus switches, role-base access for VPNs, an ISO-based Debian 11 installer and much more.
What’s Coming Up in v12
We’re excited for the upcoming PacketFence v12 release later in 2022! This upcoming release will include more new visualization capabilities around asset discovery and threat detection, services containerization, increased integration with MDM/EDR/XDR solutions and better deployment options on public Cloud providers for infrastructure-less and Cloud-first organizations. Stay tuned and follow us on Twitter for progress reports!
