ReefEdges Connect System 3.1 provides security-conscious sites with a pair of easy-to-use appliances that tackle WLAN security with persistent roaming capabilities. Sites with highly mobile clients looking for ways to secure complex WLAN topologies should consider the ReefEdge system.


Connect Server costs $7,500; Edge Controller prices start at $1,800. This pricing is competitive with that of similar systems, but companies may have to invest in IPSec clients for machines running operating systems that dont have built-in IPSec.

(+) Comprehensive WLAN security system with built-in encryption acceleration; dynamic roaming with persistent connection; fine-grained access control and security policy management.

(-) Requires IPSec client for encryption; lacks software update tools.
