SAN JOSE, Calif. -- Professionals at Booz Allen Hamilton, a global leader in management and technology consulting, now can enjoy the flexibility of untethered wireless network access without worrying about information security, thanks to a secure wireless networking solution from Cranite Systems, Inc.

Security is critical for Booz Allen, as the company’s thousands of consulting professionals handle sensitive data for clients in a wide range of corporations and government institutions. The WirelessWall software from Cranite, a leading provider of comprehensive security for wireless local area networks (WLANs), provides Booz Allen professionals with secure WLAN access. Booz Allen selected the Cranite solution because it met the consultancy’s highest security requirements. The software is compatible with Booz Allen’s existing networking and management infrastructure, while able to scale up to meet future needs.

WirelessWall enables enterprises to secure their wireless networks quickly and easily, giving employees secure access to critical data and network resources. In addition, Cranite software meets one of the government’s most rigorous security certification standards, known as FIPS 140-2. Unlike virtual private network (VPN)-based systems, which encrypt data at Layer 3, WirelessWall encrypts all transmitted information — network addresses, applications, protocols and ports — as well as the data itself, at Layer 2. This approach protects both the user’s data and the organization’s network. The software also enables users to securely roam across network sub-nets without needing to re-authenticate themselves or reboot their computers, saving time and minimizing frustration.

“For an enterprise like Booz Allen, which has a large number of mobile professionals working via wireless networks at any given time, a bullet-proof wireless LAN security solution is an absolute requirement,” said John Vigouroux, chairman and CEO, Cranite Systems, Inc. “WirelessWall enables Booz Allen consultants to benefit from the cost-effectiveness and flexibility of wireless computing, while resting assured that their information—and their network—is secure.”
