Doormouse is a product which allows guests to access your wired IT network using their own devices such as laptops and games consoles. This helps meet the regulatory requirement for network owners to monitor and record access.
Guests are taken through a simple self-service registration process:
- Agreement of terms
- Device registration
As the network owner you retain control, with an administration panel allowing appropriate staff to track network access by guests.

Who controls and retains user access data?
Control of user data is primarily defined by your existing identity infrastructure, so you can choose which information is appropriate to release to Doormouse. Doormouse also allows the user to optionally supply some additional data, but they can revoke permission at any time. User data retention can be configured to meet your own policy/ legal needs.
