Unsecure Wi-Fi networks are easy for hackers to corrupt, manipulate and steal information from. They can also be used to spread malware to your business’ computers. There are thousands of videos online showing how easy it is to hack an open Wi-Fi network, potentially costing your business hundreds, thousands or even millions.
To properly secure your network you need a robust security solution. WatchGuard delivers unprecedented Wireless Intrusion Prevention Systems (WIPS); reliable security protection that is 100% dedicated to protecting your business from wireless threats.
Each WatchGuard access point can operate as both an access point and a dedicated WIPS security sensor, providing enterprise-grade wireless security protection for your customers’ network. The security sensors scan the air and protect your customers’ businesses from the six known Wi-Fi threat categories automatically.
WIPS security sensors can be added to your current Wi-Fi deployment with ease. The sensors work alongside your existing access points so there’s no need to replace the entire network. The average network requires roughly one WIPS sensor for every four access points.
