Trusted Wireless Environment with WIPS

A Trusted Wireless Environment is a framework that enables you to build a complete Wi-Fi network that is fast, easy to manage, and most importantly, secure. A Trusted Wireless Environment provides automatic protection from the six primary Wi-Fi threat categories:

  • Rogue access point
  • Rogue client
  • Neighbor access point
  • Ad-hoc connection
  • Evil Twin access point
  • Misconfigured access point

For more information about the WatchGuard Trusted Wireless Environment and the six Wi-Fi threat categories, see Trusted Wireless Environment on the WatchGuard web site.

With WIPS, it is easy to quickly create a Trusted Wireless Environment and automatically protect your Wi-Fi network against the six common Wi-Fi threat categories. You can use WatchGuard APs for both Wi-Fi access and WIPS security protection, or you can use APs as dedicated WIPS security sensors that you can deploy alongside other WatchGuard APs or third-party APs and Wi-Fi controllers.

For detailed information on how to configure Wi-Fi Cloud WIPS to meet the requirements of a Trusted Wireless Environment, see Create a Trusted Wireless Environment with WIPS.
