Wireless Intrusion Prevention System (WIPS)

Best WIPS in the Industry

WIPS 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.

WatchGuard's patented technology ensures you have the real, accurate, and automated Wi-Fi protection that your business needs.

What Makes WatchGuard's Wi-Fi Security Unique?

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, allow legitimate external access points to operate in the same airspace, and restrict users from connecting to unsanctioned Wi-Fi access points.

WatchGuard Access Point acting as a WIPS sensor for non-WatchGuard APs

No Need to Rip and Replace, Just Add WIPS

Each WatchGuard access point has the flexibility to operate as both an access point and a dedicated WIPS security sensor. This means that when deployed as dedicated WIPS sensors, the devices work with your existing access points (Cisco Meraki, Aruba, Ruckus, etc.) and add enterprise-grade wireless security protection to your network. In this case, instead of delivering secure Wi-Fi traffic to users, we deliver unprecedented WIPS security protection that is 100% dedicated to scanning the air and protecting your business from wireless threats.
