Pprotects mobile users of hotspots and other public Wi-Fi networks from wireless-specific risks
AirDefense Personal is a software agent that runs on Windows PCs and monitors for malicious or accidental wireless activity and wireless misconfigurations that may cause security exposures or policy violations. This solution complements personal firewalls and host-based IDS systems that don’t protect the client against wireless attacks.
AirDefense Personal will protect mobile users of hotspots and other public Wi-Fi networks from wireless-specific risks that could expose private data and transactions.
AirDefense Personal offers protection from a broad and growing set of new risks that directly target vulnerable wireless users and unobtrusively notifies the user when risky activity occurs. The data collected from AirDefense Personal can be used to gain knowledge of the network usage patterns of mobile employees.
The historical and current threat assessment can then be used for setting intelligent policies that can automatically mitigate the risks of wireless attacks on mobile stations at the edge of the network. AirDefense Personal can also be deployed in enterprises to stop ad-hoc usage, bridging and probing stations.
Multiple AirDefense Personal agents can be managed centrally using the AirDefense Personal Central Manager. Policy profiles that are defined centrally can be automatically downloaded to each mobile user or group of users.
If threats are discovered, AirDefense Personal notifies the user and sends the logs to the Central Manager for centralized reporting & notification, enforcement of corporate policies and complete protection for the mobile worker, regardless of location. The AirDefense Personal Central Manager is fully integrated into AirDefense Enterprise.
