Provides Network Administrators with Complete Visibility into Wireless Security Posture through a Single Console

Mountain View, Calif. January 14, 2013 AirTight Networks, a global leader in secure Wi-Fi solutions, today announced that AirTight WIPSTM, its patented wireless intrusion prevention system, has achieved HP ArcSight Common Event Format (CEF) certification. The certification assures that AirTight wireless security alerts can be easily collected and aggregated for analysis in one single tool for security assessment and monitoring as well as platform integration for risk management. AirTight is the only WIPS vendor with this certification thus providing network administrators with complete visibility into the wireless security posture of their network(s).

With this certification, AirTight logs can be viewed in a hybrid environment eliminating administrative burdens. Network administrators can report, search, receive alerts and analyze various types of enterprise log data in one console, enabling them to manage their time and resources in a more efficient manner.

"With aggressive opponents determined to steal data coming from all vectors, network administrators must constantly watch, assess, evaluate and respond quickly. They need an easy way to correlate and act on all information about threats to the network," said Jatin Parekh, Vice President of Product Management at AirTight. "By joining best of breed technologies from AirTight and HP, customers benefit from a certified solution to address these security concerns."

"Enterprises and Governments worldwide increasingly need secure wireless and mobility amidst an increasing wireless threat landscape," said Buck Watia, director, Business Development, Enterprise Security, HP. "AirTight is a leading provider of Wireless Intrusion Prevention Solutions and we are glad to have them as a trusted CEF certified partner providing additional visibility for the HP ArcSight platform."

About AirTight WIPS

Wireless LAN (WLAN) infrastructure attacks are today one of the most critical and immediate threats to enterprise networks. To make matters worse, the consumerization of Wi-Fi is flooding enterprises with personal Wi-Fi enabled smartphones and tablets, which are inadvertently tearing down the network security perimeter; organizations without an officially deployed WLAN are also at risk. AirTight's wireless intrusion prevention system provides enterprises with continuous and the most comprehensive protection against current and emerging wireless threats.

AirTight WIPS offers proactive, automated wireless intrusion prevention with strong zero-day protection to guard against wireless vulnerabilities. AirTight's patented marker packet technology and industry's unique VLAN Policy MappingTM architecture allows customers to detect a mismatch between wired and wireless assets and security policy settings, which in turn allows protection against many attack sequences which can be launched over access points.
