AirTight Powers Siemens

AirTight Networks provides technology for Siemens HWM HiGuard WIPS

MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif. -- AirTight NetworksT, the leading provider of wireless intrusion prevention solutions, today announced that it provided core technology to Siemens for its HiPath Wireless Manager HiGuard WIPS solution, and its engineers provided technical support and assistance to both Siemens and the Tolly Group in conducting the latest set of tests for the Tolly Group White Paper published today. This White Paper evaluates wireless intrusion prevention systems (WIPS) from Siemens, Cisco, and Network Chemistry. (http://www.tollygroup.com/DocDetail.aspx?DocNumber=206156)

The most recent Tolly Group test results show that Siemens HWM HiGuard WIPS clearly outperforms both the Cisco WCS/WLC solution and the Network Chemistry RFProtect solution in delivering WIPS functionality. These tests bear a strong similarity with the Tolly Group test results comparing AirTight's SpectraGuardR Enterprise with AirMagnet and Aruba Networks - that was published in February 2006 (http://www.tollygroup.com/DocDetail.aspx?DocNumber=206103). In all four comparisons, AirTight's technology outperformed the competition along several key dimensions:

  • Comprehensive detection of wireless devices and threats
  • Accurate classification of wireless threats - to avoid a lot of false alarms
  • Robust and scaleable prevention - of multiple simultaneous wireless threats
  • Precise location tracking of wireless devices and threats
  • Complete and customizable reporting capabilities.

"The Tolly Group White Papers validate what our customers and prospects are finding in doing their own evaluations and bake-offs of WIPS solutions," said Dennis Tsu, vice president of marketing, at AirTight Networks. "AirTight's SpectraGuard Enterprise clearly outperforms all of our competition in delivering WIPS functionality."

HiGuard is an advanced IDS/IPS/LBS module that integrates with Siemens' HiPath Wireless Manager (HWM). HiGuard is available worldwide from Siemens and from Siemens' channels. HiGuard is a critical module for enterprises looking to secure their mobile enterprise while deploying VoWLAN and a Fixed Mobile Convergence solution.
