Communications distributor, Wavelink Communications, has added AirTight Networks’ SpectraGuard series of wireless intrusion prevention (WIPS) products and services.
The AirTight products are designed to detect and prevent wireless networks from being accessed or tampered with by unauthorised users. The products also work to prevent denial-of-service attacks.
According to a statement from Wavelink Communications, the move comes in line with a rise in secure wireless connectivity throughout the industry.
“It is now standard industry practice that any enterprise wireless network must provide secure wireless connectivity,” Wavelink managing director, Ilan Rubin, said. “A number of factors drive the need for wireless-specific security monitoring capabilities.
“These include mis-configuration and administration of WLAN security settings, the proliferation of unmanaged wireless devices in the workplace…and increased security demands from government and defence users as well as from the retail industry for the security of wireless payment processing systems and to meet the PCI DSS (Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard) Wireless Guideline.”
