Mountain View, CA - May 18, 2011 - AirTightŪ Networks, the leading provider of wireless intrusion prevention (WIPS) products, cloud wireless security, and Wi-Fi access services today announced its sponsorship of a special Aberdeen Group report titled, "Wireless LAN 2011: Readying the Invisible Network for the Smart Revolution." It is the first industry study to track the impact of the rapid rise of smart devices on the WLAN, and is available immediately at no cost, courtesy of AirTight.
According to Andrew Borg, senior research analyst, Wireless & Mobility for Aberdeen, and the report's author, "A network is suboptimal unless network performance and security are both addressed. It isn't enterprise class if it isn't secure. As a consequence top-performing organizations are consistent in considering network security a high priority."
The proliferation of embedded WiFi devices - smartphones, tablets, and Machine-to-Machine sensors (M2M) - and the explosion of wireless activity in and around the enterprise make maintaining a good security posture and meeting regulatory compliance requirements more challenging than ever.
"Managing these personal devices is going to start to overwhelm IT administrators," said Della Lowe, Senior Director, Global Corporate Marketing and Communications for AirTight. "So the question becomes: how do you detect and prevent those unmanaged devices from connecting to your network, while allowing the ones that you do approve of to continue to connect to the network, while keeping your data secure. Manual methods are expensive, error prone, hard to sustain and not scalable. AirTight solves the problem with auto-classification and detection technology, so customers can focus on their core business priorities instead of spending time and resources chasing down voluminous false positives and false negative alerts generated by competing systems."
