Wavelink Chosen as Distributor for AirTight Networks Wireless Intrusion Prevention Solutions

Global leader in wireless security solutions further complements Wavelink’s wireless portfolio

Melbourne, August 25, 2010 – Wavelink Communications, a value-added distributor of business IP, wireless and communication solutions has been chosen as the Australian distributor for AirTight® Networks’ SpectraGuard® family of wireless intrusion prevention (WIPS) products and services. AirTight is recognised as a global leader in supplying wireless network security solutions, which ensure that both wired networks and wireless LAN (WLAN) security and performance are not compromised by wireless threats or interference such as denial-of-service (DoS) attacks, WLAN traffic is kept private and secure, users are prevented from installing unauthorized WLANs, and unsupported/ unauthorised WLAN technologies are barred from operation.

Ilan Rubin, Wavelink managing director said, “It is now standard industry practice that any enterprise wireless network must provide secure wireless connectivity. While the built-in security capabilities of enterprise-class WLAN vendors are acceptable for many applications, 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, such as iPhones and smartphones, 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.” Read more ❯
