Motorola announced the Motorola AirDefense Wireless Vulnerability Assessment solution, a patented wireless security technology aimed at proactively assessing the security posture of wireless networks.
The solution provides a completely new method to secure wireless networks against real-world threats by introducing active wireless testing capable of evaluating every deployed wireless access point.
By simulating active attacks from a hacker’s point-of-view, the solution allows administrators to proactively assess the security of sensitive systems on the wireless network, such as cardholder data systems. The automated technology avoids the need to send personnel or consultants to remote offices and stores to manually conduct testing required for PCI DSS 1.2 compliance.
Featuring a patented wireless testing technology, the solution enables security managers to validate the protection of their sensitive systems from users of the wireless network and would-be intruders. Its extensive scan features enables them to validate firewall and wireless switch policies, while also offering discovery options to enumerate multiple paths of entry to sensitive systems on the wired side.
