What Makes WatchGuard's Wi-Fi Security Unique?
WIPS or Wireless Intrusion Prevention System is a term from the Wi-Fi industry that refers to the prevention of Wi-Fi threats, and at WatchGuard we have taken it to the next level. Our WIPS is unlike any other competing Wi-Fi security solution on the market. WatchGuard's patented technology ensures you have the real, accurate, and automated Wi-Fi protection that your business needs.
Each WatchGuard access point (AP) has the flexibility to operate as both an access point and a dedicated WIPS security sensor protecting any 3rd party brand access points.
Take WatchGuard WIPS for a Test Drive
Choose Your Deployment Scenario
Scenario 1: Wi-Fi + WIPS
Deploy WatchGuard APs managed with Wi-Fi Cloud and enjoy Trusted Wireless Environment compliant Wi-Fi, intelligent network visibility and troubleshooting features, captive portals , and location-based analytics.
Scenario 2: WIPS Overlay
Just add WatchGuard APs as a security sensor to your existing infrastructure and protect any 3rd party brand access points 24/7.
In this scenario, you see four Ubiquiti APs providing Wi-Fi access to different client devices and one WatchGuard AP configured as a dedicated WIPS sensor. The WatchGuard AP is not accepting connections from any Wi-Fi client, but is there to simply monitor and protect the Ubiquiti APs 24/7/365.
No matter which scenario you choose for your organization, you need proof that the security solution that defends your business against Wi-Fi attacks can provide automatic protection from the six known Wi-Fi threat categories:
Rogue Access Point
Allows attackers to bypass perimeter security.
Delivers malware payloads to the network after connecting to malicious APs.
Neighbor Access Point or Client Misassociation
Risks infection from connecting to other SSIDs while in range of the authorized AP.
Uses peer-to-peer connections to evade security controls and risk exposure to malware.
"Evil Twin" Access Point
Lures users to connect to it so as to spy on traffic, steal data and infect systems.
Misconfigured Access Point
Opens networks to attack as a result of configuration errors.
