Enhanced Management Console and Alert Notification are Top Innovations Among New Features Related to Wireless Rogue Detection and Location

Highwall Technologies, the leading provider of network security appliances designed to eliminate the risks associated with WLANs and rogue wireless devices, today announced the latest release of the Highwall Rogue Detection System 2.0. While maintaining its industry leading coverage for rogue wireless detection, the latest Highwall Rogue Detection System offers an enhanced management console developed to perform alert management, location tracking, and policy enforcement functions.

Highwall’s Rogue Detection System incorporates the company's Highwall Sentinel, patent-pending Highwall Scout, and server software to monitor and secure organizations from rogue wireless across multiple locations. The system’s management console can monitor an unlimited number of systems, real-time, from a single workstation. In version 2.0, Highwall’s Rogue Detection System includes an intuitive interface that provides real-time views of current wireless threats that can create wired network vulnerabilities. Users can drill-down to find the details of detected wireless devices, locate their position, and automate alert notifications.

Market Leading Rogue Detection and Alert Notification

The Highwall Rogue Detection System continuously monitors the airwaves for all wireless devices operating in the 802.11 a, b, and g frequencies within the appliance’s coverage area (5 Floor Building). The Highwall Rogue Detection System can determine whether wireless devices are authorized or unauthorized devices, and identifies them by band, channel, MAC address, SSID, and manufacturer.

The latest version of the Highwall Rogue Detection System incorporates a tiered system of policy management that allows network managers to set required levels of security for their networking environment. The system allows users to define any number of system responses to each alert type, including notification via e-mail, SNMP, event log, or several other communications methods.
