WESTMINSTER, CO -- (MARKET WIRE) -- June 16, 2005 -- Roving Planet, a leading provider of integrated wireless LAN security and management software, today announced that its award-winning Commander Suite 3.0™ Enterprise Edition will continue to support Proxim's access points and wireless LAN infrastructure. Roving Planet's Commander Suite ensures that previous IT investments in Proxim access points are not lost by providing enterprise users with WLAN management and security features including Scan & Block device quarantine and guest user access.

"Roving Planet has installed multiple systems with Proxim-based wireless LANs, including some of the largest wireless LANs to be deployed worldwide," said Harry Simpson, Roving Planet Sr. VP of Business Development. "It's our intention to continue to support Proxim access points and infrastructure, including any future enhancements that may be introduced."

Combining configuration management together with advanced security and visibility options, Commander Suite 3.0 enables the enterprise to set security policies for network admission and access.

"Commander Suite 3.0 decreases the time and money spent on wireless LAN management by offering enterprise organizations a full suite of solutions with automated features and correlated real-time information."
