Title: White Paper Sponsored by Siemens: Evaluating Wireless IPS Systems

Publication date:   18 April 2006
Document number:    206119

Abstract:

This Tolly Group white paper, commissioned by Siemens, focuses on the key issues users must consider when evaluating wireless intrusion prevention systems. For the report, The Tolly Group evaluated HiPath Wireless Manager Advanced (HWMA), a multi-faceted WIPS designed to protect enterprise network infrastructures from wireless attacks.

The Tolly Group assessed the capability of HWMA to detect and block a range of wireless threats — from dealing with rogue APs, to detection and prevention of access point (AP) MAC address spoofing, to detection and prevention of Denial of Service (DoS) attacks, and several others.

Tolly Group engineers measured the effectiveness of HWMA against two other products: AirMagnet Inc.’s AirMagnet Enterprise and Aruba Networks Aruba Mobility Controller. Tests were conducted at AirTight Networks facilities in Mountain View, CA during December 2005.
