Protect your airwaves

2 November 2005 Test & Measurement

The push to enterprise wireless LANS is inevitable. However, WLANS are inherently more vulnerable to external hacker attacks, even with a VPN. That is why the RFprotect Distributed Wireless Intrusion Protection System is indispensable, says local distributor, Comtest. This wireless rogue protection system from JDS Uniphase, formerly Acterna, is a complete security monitoring solution that protects one's information assets from current and emerging wireless threats.

RFprotect secures the enterprise from all types of wireless rogues. Beyond rogue AP detection, the system identifies and assesses the threat level of rogue clients, neighbouring WLANS, ad hoc networks and software APs. It scans for suspicious activities across the entire geography, reporting attacks. The software's detection, locationing and mapping functions can quickly hunt down malicious devices.

Best practice WLAN security policies help reduce vulnerabilities that hackers can exploit. RFprotect alerts when security policy is violated. Its integral relational database and reporting engine automates the pass/fail validation of custom or industry security policies. It also provides realtime updates of who is using the WLAN. When network problems are suspected, RFprotect can be used to drill down on any AP or client. Advanced diagnostics can troubleshoot using per station details, RF environmental analysis and full 7-layer traffic analysis.
