Wavelink introduced Wavelink Managed Security, the industry’s first integrated system for wireless LAN management and protection.

Wavelink Managed Security cuts through the complexity of wireless LAN security, delivering centralized control for all policies, infrastructure and mobile devices.

“Organizations deploying mobile solutions are beginning to recognize the critical nature of managing and securing mobile devices and wireless LAN networks,” said Stephen Drake, program manager for IDC’s Mobile Software service. “Successful suppliers who can deliver an integrated offering to address this combined functionality serve the growing demands of customers deploying mobile solutions.”

Wavelink Managed Security enables organizations to plan, deploy, secure, monitor and maintain the entire wireless system–from networks to mobile devices. Wavelink Managed Security preserves and safeguards existing infrastructure and can easily adapt to growing business demands. The solution incorporates security for legacy 802.11 and newer WPA-compliant infrastructures in a single architecture, while supporting a wide range of mobile devices, including industrial terminals, PDAs and laptops. The solution provides access and authentication for all 802.1X-enabled environments, allowing enterprises to centrally deploy WPA client software and WPA policies to vast infrastructures, across multiple sites, without having to physically touch client devices. Managed Security also supports all major authentication techniques, including TLS, TTLS and PEAP and easily integrates with existing Active Directory and LDAP directory systems.

With a consolidated view and central control of the network, Managed Security also provides visibility to a wide range of wireless security vulnerabilities and performance issues including intrusions, rogue access points, policy mismatches and denial of service attacks.

“Mobility is critical to our business success, but we were challenged to find a way to integrate the key solutions required to manage and protect our wireless network which has a combination of legacy and newer equipment,” said Steve Broadhead, business applications development supervisor for RC Willey Home Furnishings. “Managed Security solved the complexities of our wireless deployment, incorporating all our system components. The solution allows us to proactively set policies and manage and secure our entire system from one central location.”

Managed Security combines Wavelink’s own proven software, Wavelink Mobile Manager, Wavelink Avalanche and Wavelink Mobile Manager Authentication Server with best-of-breed partner products, including Funk Software’s Odyssey Client, and AirMagnet’s Handheld and Laptop Analyzer Products and Enterprise Wireless Intrusion Prevention System.

“Concerns about security and management are preventing organizations from realizing the potential of wireless networks and mobility,” said Dave Bullis, president and CEO of Wavelink Corporation. “Wavelink Managed Security represents a breakthrough for enterprises trying to find a clear and flexible model for wireless LAN security and management. This furthers our vision of enabling customers to achieve consistent management and security across their entire wireless system, independent of the hardware they choose.”
