AirTight Now Holds 11 U.S., 1 Australian and 1 UK Granted Patents for Wireless Intrusion Prevention with More Patents Pending
Mountain View, CA - June 30, 2009 - AirTight® Networks, the global leader in wireless security and compliance solutions, today announced it has been granted US patent number 7,536,723 by the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) for router AP rogue detection techniques. Rogue APs can get connected to enterprise wired networks accidentally or by malicious actions without the knowledge of the network administrator. Intruders can access enterprise wired network from RF coverage of rogue APs bypassing traditional wired and wireless security controls. As a result, it is important for any wireless intrusion prevention system (WIPS) to continuously track APs visible in the enterprise airspace to determine if any of them is connected into the enterprise wired network and thus poses a security threat.
"Robust automatic AP classification and rogue detection via accurate on wire/off wire detection are among the factors which set AirTight’s wireless intrusion prevention technology apart from the pack," said Dr. Hemant Chaskar, Director of Technology at AirTight Networks. "While other vendors are only now starting to implement router AP rogue detection capabilities, AirTight has been supporting it for years and now owns the patent on the technology which facilitates detection of router AP rogues."
