Wi-Fi Security Tool Puts Emphasis on Location
Newbury Networks' WiFi Watchdog 5.0 uses location technology for intrusion prevention and detection, client protection, and rogue access point containment.Newbury Networks Inc. this week introduced the latest version of its Wi-Fi security software, which uses both location and behavior patterns to monitor a network for rogue access points. WiFi Watchdog 5.0 is server-side software that uses location technology for intrusion prevention and detection, client protection, and rogue access point containment. Location helps determine not only what is a threat, but what isnt, officials said. This aids in eliminating false positives in intrusion detection, helping to differentiate a true rogue access within the walls of a customers company from an unsecured access point in the company next door, said officials at the Boston-based company. WiFi Watchdog 5.0 both classifies the type of attack and identifies the physical location of the source of the attack, officials said.
