ATLANTA -- AirDefense, the leader in anytime, anywhere wireless security and monitoring today announced the extension of automated wireless network protection with the release of two new offerings. AirDefense Enterprise 6.0 introduces the industry's first Self-Managing™ intrusion protection system (IPS) providing automated protection for wireless threats. AirDefense Personal is a Windows-based software module that works with AirDefense Enterprise, and protects the mobile worker. The combined solution enables organizations to efficiently protect enterprise information assets automatically from nearly 200 threats at anytime not only within the four walls of the enterprise but globally as well.

"With AirDefense, I sleep well at night knowing that my network is protected from rogue wireless devices," said Bo Mendenhall, information security analyst with University of Utah Health Sciences Center. "We see hundreds of rogue stations and access points around our campus and trying to determine which one poses a security risk is like finding a needle in a haystack. What I love about the latest version of AirDefense is its ability to pinpoint if a rogue is on my network and the ability to do something about it immediately."

The Self-Managing capabilities of AirDefense Enterprise 6.0 allow enterprises to configure the system to manage itself, including identifying security risks, rogue devices, policy violations, level of threat, location of threats and automated mitigation via wire or wirelessly. Requiring minimal administrative intervention, Enterprise 6.0 enables management by exception and produces improved protection and efficiency for the IT department.

"AirDefense pioneered the wireless monitoring space and continues to lead the market because of our singular focus and in-depth expertise to deliver solutions our customers require today," said Anil Khatod, CEO and President of AirDefense. "With Self-Managing IPS, network and security managers can now be assured of enterprise security even as organizations become more virtual in nature."
