Today, a wireless network designed properly is widely considered equal to or in many cases more secure than most deployed wired networks. However no single device, feature, or protocol can protect your wireless or even a wired network, it will require a comprehensive approach.
This is accomplished by applying multiple layers of security through mechanisms such as authentication, encryption, client classification and access, and IDS/IPS (intrusion detection and intrusion prevention services) the wireless network can be assuredly secured. Designed correctly, a wireless solution can provide a level of service with the ability to ID and classify users, securely protect data as it traverses the network, and also monitor the surrounding RF environment for threats.
The audience will learn about key wireless security issues and mechanisms including:
- Wireless Security Myths vs. Reality
- Controlling user access
- Securing communication across the air
- Addressing BYOD with Device Identification and Control
- RF Monitoring for wireless threats
- Designing Secure Wi-Fi Networks with a Xirrus solution
