AirMagnet received this Award for its ability to consistently offer innovative intrusion detection/prevention systems (IDS/IPS) to the wireless LAN (WLAN) market since 2001
AirMagnet’s products provide complete control over the entire lifecycle of the WLAN – from network design and deployment to 24x7 intrusion prevention and troubleshooting – to help IT personnel quickly and effectively diagnose and respond to wireless issues. Since its inception, AirMagnet has been working to make wireless LANs as secure as wired LANs – a value proposition that was underscored by the alarming TJX data security breaches reported in March of 2007.
From its 24x7 enterprise WLAN security and performance monitoring software (AirMagnet Enterprise) to its portable handheld WLAN analyzer (AirMagnet Handheld Analyzer), AirMagnet has partnered with leading vendors to ensure seamless product integration and compatibility with tier 1 infrastructure vendors such as Cisco and Aruba.
“With MAC spoofing, wireless hacking, and unapproved connections constantly bombarding today’s wireless networks, AirMagnet’s products are a valuable weapon in the armament available to IT professionals,” notes Frost & Sullivan Research Analyst James Brehm. “These solutions can diagnose, explain and respond to wireless network abnormalities automatically, providing the industry standard for WLAN security and management, and ensuring dependable up-time for a wireless network.”
AirMagnet’s uncompromising quality is proved in numbers – it has more than 7,500 enterprise customers worldwide and more than 200 partners for local sales, training, and support. With solutions for planning, monitoring, and troubleshooting, the company’s wireless IDS/IPS products cover all the necessities for creating and maintaining a secure and reliable wireless network. AirMagnet was also the first vendor to offer solutions for securing and managing voice-over-wireless (VoWiFi).
There is no doubt that just as wireless networks expand – in both scale and complexity – and as security threats increase in abundance and stealth, AirMagnet will continue to be an excellent choice for meeting these challenges in the evolution of Wi-Fi.
In recognition of its achievements, the Frost & Sullivan Mobility Awards Committee is proud to present AirMagnet with the 2008 North American Mobility Award for the IDS/IPS wireless LAN security monitoring software market.
