Wireless Security:

Wireless LAN security has come of age with the wealth of hardware and software products that have recently emerged on the market to address this challenging need. Solutions abound at every layer of the ISO model.

WirelessTEK supports a host of Layer 1, 2 and 3 products and technologies as components of a fully certified AAA1 security policy. A good WLAN security audit should include checks in all of these key areas.


It all starts with good network security policies. Mandates of strong passwords on all network resources, especially Access Points/Switches/Routers (wired and wireless) and all servers are essential to good security. WirelessTEK can audit your WLAN resources to be sure your passwords cannot easily be determined.


Have you thought about rogue AP’s? Do you think you don’t have any? Think again, and think about it often. A rogue AP on your backbone, inside any wireless gateway/firewall, can be a major problem as it will completely bypasses all other access control. A carefully configured rogue may not be easily detected. You may have a rogue AP, even if you don’t (officially) have a WLAN. With the proliferation of cheap home networking components, employees can deploy their own WLANs without notice or approval.


Coupled with your organization’s strong security policies and extensive user education, WirelessTEK can help you with the challenge of selecting and implementing a security strategy at several layers of the OSI networking model.

Those solutions include:
