Fluke Networks makes dynamic responses to wireless threats and true “no-wireless” zones realities with new capabilities in AirMagnet Enterprise

Fluke NetworksFebruary 13, 2015 – Last year, hackers stole roughly 81.5 million records while carrying out more than 740 confirmed data breaches. Many of the attacks targeted household name brands, costing the global economy up to $575 billion annually*, and destroying consumer confidence—all while each company believed its data were secure. To combat this ever-growing threat, Fluke Networks has announced a major upgrade to its market-leading AirMagnet Enterprise wireless security solution.

With timely dynamic threat updates, location tracking and alerting of cellular or Wi-Fi devices, AirMagnet Enterprise is the first wireless intrusion detection and prevention (WIDS/WIPS) solution that lets enterprises and agencies enforce a 24×7 “no-wireless” zone. It also helps organisations meet stringent new PCI 3.0 compliance standards, includes a captive portal support for assuring guest wireless networks, and provides 802.11ac detection, location and blocking of rogue devices.

As mobile data, mobile devices and security breaches continue their stratospheric climb, the ability to immediately identify all rogue wireless activities, regardless of network type, and enforce a “no-wireless” zone is critical for organisations that deal with sensitive information and need to secure their vital data centres. AirMagnet Enterprise provides complete unified wireless (802.11a/b/g/n/ac) and cellular (3G, 4G LTE, CDMA) spectrum security across the entire wireless network infrastructure. Read more ❯

Fluke Networks redefines cost model for dedicated monitoring of wireless LANs

AM_HR_PlannerMarch 29, 2012Fluke Networks has announced a new version of its premier wireless local area network (WLAN) security and performance monitoring solution, AirMagnet Enterprise, Version 10. It offers the industry’s first Software Sensor Agent, letting customers use both software and hardware sensors to optimise cost, deployment and security monitoring needs.

With Fluke Networks’ new software-based option, organisations can now turn any Windows-PC into a software-based WLAN sensor.  This deployment option lets network professionals choose between standard hardware sensors, which are the core technology for monitoring WLANs, and a cost-effective software alternative for multi-site healthcare, retail and concession operations needing basic PCI or HIPAA compliance monitoring.

The software sensor is one of several new capabilities included in AirMagnet Enterprise Version 10, which also includes performance monitoring and WLAN platform support. The software agent incorporates Fluke Networks’ leading rogue detection and performance management capabilities to ensure the highest levels of security. The new version of AirMagnet Enterprise also features a management screen that provides a consolidated view of all data and controls to simplify investigation and containment of rogue devices.
