Wavelink Introduces Industry's First Integrated System for Wireless LAN Security
Provides enterprises centralized security management and control for entire wireless system
Kirkland, Wash.-- October 18, 2004 -- Wavelink Corporation today introduced Wavelink Managed Security, the industry's first integrated system for wireless LAN management and protection. Wavelink Managed Security cuts through the complexity of wireless LAN security, delivering centralized control for all policies, infrastructure and mobile devices.
Wavelink Managed Security enables organizations to plan, deploy, secure, monitor, and maintain the entire wireless system-from networks to mobile devices. Wavelink Managed Security preserves and safeguards existing infrastructure and can easily adapt to growing business demands. The solution incorporates security for legacy 802.11 and newer WPA-compliant infrastructures in a single architecture, while supporting a wide range of mobile devices, including industrial terminals, PDAs and laptops. The solution provides access and authentication for all 802.1X-enabled environments, allowing enterprises to centrally deploy WPA client software and WPA policies to vast infrastructures, across multiple sites, without having to physically touch client devices. Managed Security also supports all major authentication techniques, including TLS, TTLS and PEAP and easily integrates with existing Active Directory and LDAP directory systems.
With a consolidated view and central control of the network, Managed Security also provides visibility to a wide range of wireless security vulnerabilities and performance issues including intrusions, rogue access points, policy mismatches and denial of service attacks.
Managed Security combines Wavelink's own proven software, Wavelink Mobile Manager, Wavelink Avalanche, and Wavelink Mobile Manager Authentication Server with partner products, including Funk Software's Odyssey Client and AirMagnet's Handheld and Laptop Analyzer Products and Enterprise Wireless Intrusion Prevention System.
