Can you feel it coming in the air tonight? – asks Phil Collins, probably not knowing that the famous lyrics may very well connect to cyber threats that constantly evolve and may exploit vulnerabilities of our networks. Luckily, we’ve got Extreme AirDefense manning the post. Let’s have a closer look at the most advanced wireless intrusion prevention system in the world!
- Sanctioned: The usual devices owned by your organization that conform to your security policies.
- Unsanctioned: The usual “suspects”, these devices are not approved to be in your network. For example, rogue devices are unsanctioned devices that have connected to your wired network.
- Neighboring Devices: Devices seen on the air waves but not interacting with your network.
Different Types of Wireless Threats.
- Targeted disruption of wireless connections.
- No impact to allowed network traffic.
- Compliant with applicable Laws and ETSI Regulations.
- Searches wired network to locate the switch-port a rogue threat is attached to.

AirDefense Services Platform – one man army
AirDefense detects approximately 200 different types of attacks.
- Provides accurate record of wireless threats over time for forensic analysis and policy compliance – every minute, the system stores 300+ data points for each identified wireless device.
- Enables access to highly accurate historical data required by many regulations such as HIPAA, GLBA, Sarbanes-Oxley (SOX), Payment Card Industry (PCI) data security standards such as VISA CISP.
- The historical data kept by the forensics module provides a tool for troubleshooting incidents reported in the past that may not even be active any longer.
- Enables proactive penetration testing for wireless networks.
- Identifies wireless network security issues from the hacker’s point-of-view.
- The remote testing capability eliminates additional expense associated with manual testing and on-site visits.
- Scans can be configured to run either automatically or on demand, allowing you to meet compliance requirements for regulations like PCI DSS while also maintaining a strong network security posture.
AirDefense Essentials – a Pilot you can count on
- Protects your network and airspace using essential threats and features from AirDefense Enterprise.
- Cloudified for quicker threat and feature additions without upgrading your infrastructure.
- Enable detailed visibility into key threats and compromised areas.
- Leverage the dashboard for a quick visual review of the network security status.
