About Wireless Security Settings

WatchGuard XTM wireless devices use three security protocol standards to protect your wireless network: WEP (Wired Equivalent Privacy), WPA (Wi-Fi Protected Access), and WPA2. Each protocol standard can encrypt the transmissions on the wireless LAN between the computers and the access points. They also can prevent unauthorized access to the wireless access point.

To protect privacy, you can use these features together with other LAN security mechanisms such as password protection, VPN tunnels, and user authentication.
