Wireless Intrusion Prevention System (WIPS)

There are many ways outside parties can gain unauthorized access to your WiFi network: misconfigured access points, rogue access points, WiFi pineapple, or a “man in the middle” attack are just a few of them. And thiscan be done simply by an employee connecting to a neighboring WiFi network, or a clever hacker sitting in your company parking lot.

But if you are using AirTight Wireless Intrusion Prevention System (WIPS), you’ll be protected from WiFi hacking by the industry’s top-rated wireless security solution.
