AirTight Rated "Positive" in Leading Industry Analyst Firm's Broadband Wireless Report on Wireless LAN Intrusion Prevention Systems

8/7/09 - AirTight Networks announced that Gartner, Inc. has rated AirTight "Positive" in Gartner's 2009 MarketScope for Wireless LAN Intrusion Prevention Systems report. The July 2009 report was authored by John Girard, VP, Distinguished Analyst and John Pescatore, VP, Distinguished Analyst at Gartner.

Vendors were evaluated on five criteria -- customer experience, offering (product) strategy, overall viability (business unit, financial strategy, organization), marketing execution, product/service. AirTight was rated "Positive."

According to the MarketScope report, "As new wireless technologies emerge, the overlay systems will provide the most flexible approach for rapidly incorporating monitoring and intrusion prevention." The report goes on to say, "Also, as the use of WLANs becomes increasingly mainstream, vulnerability-seeking attacks will increase and intrusion prevention capabilities will be used more. So, although the WIPS market has reached the early mainstream phase, it continues to be a dynamic market where new features are needed with each product release."

"Our patented technology has proven over and over again that security and simplicity are not mutually exclusive. At AirTight we take pride in delivering new products and features to our customers ahead of emerging threats. AirTight was the first and only WIPS vendor to introduce wireless scanning and compliance as SaaS and first to market with a backward compatible 802.11n sensor platform," said David King, Chairman and CEO of AirTight. "Because of this, organizations of any size can take full advantage of wireless technologies for driving business value without compromising performance or security."

AirTight is committed to providing customers with solutions which fit their budgets and allow them to address emerging threats and new government compliance or industry regulations such as the recently released PCI DSS Wireless Guideline . This Guideline specifically requires all networks which process, transmit or store card holder data to scan all locations at least once per quarter for wireless threats. For this reason, AirTight offers four levels of on-demand PCI wireless scanning solutions to help customers meet and exceed the PCI DSS wireless requirements.

"Gartner's thorough analysis of technology markets and unrivalled reputation makes their MarketScope reports important benchmarks for any vendor. We believe this "Positive" rating from Gartner solidifies AirTight's continuing leadership and innovation in the market and our commitment to developing products and services that keep our customers' networks and data secure," continued King.

The AirTight SpectraGuard solution family has achieved industry leadership based on patented technology that blocks wireless threats immediately and automatically, locates wireless devices and events with pinpoint precision and eliminates the false alarms that plague busy network operations and IT professionals.

Both its onsite WIPS product, SpectraGuard® Enterprise and its on-demand hosted vulnerability management service, SpectraGuard Online are low touch solutions providing easy deployment and automated scanning and reporting with little human intervention.
