Best wireless security solution

Winner: AirMagnet for AirMagnet Enterprise

Wireless LAN (WLAN) infrastructure must function securely and reliably before it can be leveraged for critical business applications. The only way to guarantee continuous network security and health is to identify problems before they have an impact. AirMagnet Enterprise is the industry's preferred WLAN security and management solution. It enables any organization to proactively mitigate all types of wireless threats, enforce enterprise policies, prevent performance problems and audit regulatory compliance of all Wi-Fi assets and users worldwide. In addition, with 802.11n offering more WLAN throughput and performance than ever before, it is more important than ever that organizations have the proper solutions to protect and secure their wireless network and ensure that it performs as well as, if not better than, any wired network. AirMagnet Enterprise protects WLANs from the latest vulnerabilities and allows organizations to continuously monitor and improve their wireless performance, whether they're using 802.11a/b/g or n.

AirMagnet Enterprise, an independent WLAN security and monitoring solution, allows users to trace and block rogue devices that are physically connected to an enterprise network faster and more reliably than many other solutions. Air-Magnet Enterprise coordinates complementary tracing techniques, leveraging AirMagnet's intelligent sensors to perform local tracing of the sensor's immediate environment, as well as global, centralized tracing performed by the AirMagnet server. In addition, the tool delivers both fundamental architectural advantages, as well as unique features critical to WLAN health and security. AirMagnet's wireless monitoring solution mirrors wired IDS best practices by performing wireless IDS analysis locally and in the network, meaning that, unlike other solutions that rely on remote analysis, AirMagnet always retains 100 percent access to all wireless traffic while offering unmatched scalability and minimal impact on normal network operations.
