AirTight Networks First to Offer Free Wireless Threat Vulnerability Analysis

No-Obligation Investigation Helps Companies Identify and Eradicate Real-World Threats to the Corporate Network

MOUNTAIN VIEW, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- May 25, 2005 -- AirTight Networks, the leading provider of Wi-Fi IPS (WIPS) Firewalls, announced that it is launching the industry's first Wireless Threat Vulnerability Analysis service. Designed for enterprises, the new no-obligation service will provide an assessment of network vulnerability to Wi-Fi threats such as rogue access points and clients, ad hoc networks and denial of service attacks. The free analysis leverages the capabilities of AirTight's SpectraGuard Enterprise 3.0, the industry's first Wi-Fi IPS Firewall to integrate automatic device classification and intrusion prevention, pinpoint location tracking and real-time RF mapping.

"Most companies have not begun to comprehend just how vulnerable their networks are," said Jai Rawat, vice president, business development and product management at AirTight Networks. "In fact, whether they have a Wi-Fi network or not, they may be harboring rogue access points, or be maintaining unauthorized client connections to neighboring networks, without even realizing it. We hope that this offer will shed light on the prevalence of both the threat of malicious hacking, and the susceptibility that most networks have to the potential loss of confidential data."

The Wireless Threat Vulnerability Analysis, which will be performed at no charge by systems engineers from AirTight Networks and its channel partners, will help enterprises understand, at a granular level, the current susceptibility level of its network. Requiring only a few hours, the assessment will immediately find any existing rogue APs or unauthorized client connections. Administrators will be able to immediately locate and remove them through AirTight's SpectraGuard Enterprise 3.0 precise location tracking. In addition, simulation of all types of malicious Wi-Fi attacks, including man-in-the-middle, Evil Twin and Denial of Service attacks, will be performed to analyze network response. If the enterprise has an authorized wireless LAN, the assessment will also provide an overall evaluation of its security level. AirTight Networks will summarize its findings, as well as specific recommendations for tightening network security against Wi-Fi vulnerabilities, in a comprehensive report.
