The Tolly Reports

  • New Benchmarking Strategies for Wireless Intrusion Prevention Systems (January 2007)
  • Hands-on Examination of Products from Siemens, Cisco Systems and Network Chemistry Reveals Robust Capabilities of HiPath Wireless Manager HiGuard (September 2006)
  • Evaluation Wireless Intrusion Prevention Systems (February 2006)
New Benchmarking Strategies for Wireless Intrusion Prevention Systems (January 2007)

The information provided in this report is harvested from the Tolly Group's own hands-on experience benchmarking a variety of WIPS products.
An effective WIPS must do three things well :

  • Detect and automatically classify wireless devices and events - to figure out which are threats and which are not.
  • Prevent multiple wireless threats simultaneously while continuing to scan for new threats
  • Accurately locate threats on a floor map so that they can be eliminated quickly
Hands-on Examination of Products from Siemens, Cisco Systems and Network Chemistry Reveals Robust Capabilities of HiPath Wireless Manager HiGuard (September 2006)

This Tolly Group test results show that Siemens HWM HiGuard WIPS clearly outperforms both the Cisco WCS/WLC solution and the Network Chemistry RFProtect solution in delivering WIPS functionality. These tests bear a strong similarity with the Tolly Group test results comparing AirTight’s SpectraGuard® Enterprise with AirMagnet and Aruba Networks - that was published in February 2006.

In all four comparisons, AirTight’s technology outperformed the competition along several key dimensions:

  • Comprehensive detection of wireless devices and threats
  • Robust and scalable prevention – of multiple simultaneous wireless threats
  • Precise location tracking of wireless devices and threats
  • Complete and customizable reporting capabilities.
Evaluation Wireless Intrusion Prevention Systems (February 2006)

AirTight Networks Outperforms Rival WIPS Solution
The Tolly Group tested and compared three Wireless Intrusion Prevention Systems (WIPSs):

  •  AirTight Networks' SpectraGuard Enterprise
  •  AirMagnets' AirMagnet Enterprise
  •  Aruba Networks' Aruba Mobility Controller
