Ensuring Wireless Security with WirelessMon 2.0

Share Article

New WirelessMon 2.0 monitors wireless access points and can identify security risks such as unsecured wireless servers. The software can also generate a geographic coverage map based on signal strength, using either manual plotting or direct read from a GPS device.

PassMark™ Software today announced the release of WirelessMon 2.0, the long-awaited new version of their wireless network monitoring software. WirelessMon 2.0 is the ideal tool for identifying security risks resulting from unsecured wireless servers and for plotting geographic coverage of wireless networks on a map.

The new map plotting feature enables users to create a WiFi ‘coverage map’ by automatically plotting the relative signal strength and number of detected signals on an imported map. Tracking points may either be entered manually or read directly from Global Positioning System (GPS) devices.

Further improvements include: Added ‘Channel Usage’ graph showing potential interference; Ability for WirelessMon to act as a ‘connection manager’ allowing direct connection to an access-point from within the program; a redesigned user interface; and logs are now saveable in a Microsoft MapPoint compatible format.

A free 30-day trial version of WirelessMon 2.0 may be downloaded from the PassMark website. Alternatively Users wishing to purchase the ‘full’ versions will have the choice of the Standard ($US19.00) or Professional ($US49.00) editions.
