AirTight’s SpectraGuard Wireless Intrusion Prevention System Integrates with HP ProCurve Network Infrastructure to Provide Seamless Wireless Security
Mountain View, CA - January 26, 2009 - To provide customers with a reliable and cost-effective wireless intrusion prevention solution for 802.11abg and 802.11n environments, AirTight® Networks today announced it has joined the HP ProCurve Open Network Ecosystem (HP ProCurve ONE) partner alliance. AirTight, the leading provider of wireless intrusion prevention systems (WIPS), is partnering with HP ProCurve to provide a seamless integration of wireless security into any network infrastructure using AirTight's SpectraGuard Enterprise product.
Customers who have deployed HP ProCurve 5406zl, 5412zl, or 8212zl switches can run AirTight's SpectraGuard® Enterprise server application on the HP ProCurve ONE Services zl Module. This module is a blade for the HP ProCurve 5400zl and 8200zl Switch series that hosts applications onto a common platform, helping enterprises meet their needs to accelerate business growth, reduce costs and mitigate risks.
The Airtight SpectraGuard Enterprise server works in conjunction with AirTight’s SpectraGuard sensors or HP ProCurve MSM320, MSM325, and MSM335 access points to manage costs and optimize rack space.
"As wireless becomes a pervasive technology for connecting users to enterprise networks, wireless security has emerged as a critical requirement for IT departments globally," said David King, Chairman and CEO, AirTight Networks. "We are pleased to work with an innovator like HP ProCurve in offering AirTight's industry leading wireless intrusion prevention technology to enterprises worldwide. By creating an open architecture model for its HP ProCurve ONE program, HP ProCurve has demonstrated a commitment to provide its networking customers with complete security and management capabilities from a diverse ecosystem."
"Our customers need a way to increase the speed of business technology change," said Marius Haas, senior vice president and general manager, HP ProCurve. "The HP ProCurve ONE program allows alliance partners to develop applications with HP ProCurve infrastructure to help customers address those challenges quickly and cost effectively."
AirTight's SpectraGuard Enterprise provides superior WIPS technology to protect enterprise networks against current and emerging wireless threats. AirTight's patented WIPS technology automatically detects and classifies all wireless devices and connections enabling network and security professionals to precisely locate and automatically block wireless threats - including rogue and misconfigured APs, denial of service attacks, ad hoc client bridging and wi-phishing threats, and WEP/WPA cracking attacks.
AirTight is the only WIPS vendor to receive a second consecutive "Positive" rating by Gartner in its recent MarketScope, and its products have consistently outperformed its competitors in other head-to-head, in-depth evaluations (conducted by Tolly and Information Security). Frost and Sullivan awarded AirTight its 2008 North America Network Endpoint Protection Customer Value Enhancement Award and the 2008 Market Share Advancement Award for demonstrating excellence in increasing market share within its industry. Recent magazine reviews in PCPro and SC Magazine respectively have awarded five stars to SpectraGuard Enterprise and praised it as "a wireless security solution that’s easy to deploy, elegantly simple and frighteningly effective," and "a unique wireless security solution that can automatically classify and control access points (APs) and wireless clients."
