WatchGuard Extends Enterprise Strength Security To Wireless Networks

WatchGuard Technologies, a global leader in manageable business security solutions, has been announced the availability of two new Wireless Access Point products, providing customers with the same level of security for their wireless local access network (WLAN) traffic that they rely on for their traditional wired traffic.

More and more companies are incorporating bring-your-own-device (BYOD) policies in order to enable a mobile workforce and enhance productivity. Companies usually adopt complicated procedures to manage this growing trend, but these limited security measures are only effective within a virtual private network (VPN) or hard-wire connection.  This approach leaves mobile devices vulnerable to intrusion, viruses, and malware when connected to a wireless network. With threats on the rise and growing amounts of corporate data stored on workers’ personal devices, it is more critical than ever that steps be taken to secure wireless infrastructure.

The new Wireless Access Points AP100 and AP200, extend the high-performing best-in-class and policy-based management features, familiar to WatchGuard’s smart firewall customers, to the wireless environment. This step offers customers the ability to accurately and easily apply security policies and changes to both wired and WLAN resources simultaneously, which is critical to enforcing security standards across the entire network infrastructure.
