RFprotect Distributed is a patent-pending Wireless Intrusion Detection and Prevention (WIDP) system featuring a two-tier system architecture - dual-radio sensors and a central security server. This powerful wireless security solution incorporates the industry's only Wireless Threat Protection Framework for complete threat detection, attack prevention, "no wireless" policy enforcement and compliance reporting inside the enterprise. RFprotect Distributed secures your wireless network against intrusions that are perpetrated intentionally and from vulnerabilities caused unintentionally through misconfigured network equipment.
Complete threat monitoring
RFprotect Distributed offers TotalWatch, the industry's most accurate wireless intrusion detection technology, enabling RFprotect Distributed to scan over 220 channels across the frequency spectrum usable by 802.11 networks. RFprotect Distributed scans all 802.11a/b/g channels in the regulatory domains of the U.S., Europe, and Asia. When appropriate, RFprotect Distributed sensors are configured to comply with country-specific wireless transmission laws and regulations. The ability to scan all regions simultaneously is particularly important to global organizations, where employees are more likely to introduce ‘off-region' rogues.
User defined experts
An RFprotect expert is a defined set of conditions allowing the detection of possible new attacks and security events. RFprotect ships with predefined system experts for currently known wireless attacks. Users can expand the capabilities of RFprotect Distributed by adding new experts to protect against newly detected attacks. Simple user-defined experts can be added via the GUI on the server while more advanced experts can be written using the Lua scripting language.
Policy-based threat prioritization
Through its PolicyEnforce feature, RFprotect Distributed enforces corporate policy and enables ease-of-use through fully automated policy-based threat prioritization. Fully definable threat assessment criteria enable multiple security policies to be defined at a granular level including classifications such as location, device, configuration and time.
Automated compliance reporting
RFprotect Distributed ensures compliance with wireless security policies and regulations through automated report generation and distribution. Reporting functionality includes pre-configured compliance reports such as DoD 8100.2, HIPAA, GLBA, FISMA and Visa's PCI, built-in reports for policy enforcement, and integration with RFprotect Mobile for vulnerability assessment and performance reporting. The AutoReports feature enables automated report scheduling and forwarding, and customized delivery to multiple locations, users, and formats
Ease of use and low total cost of ownershipProduct Highlights
RFprotect Distributed was designed for ease of use and operation. The centralized management console GUI is intuitive and focuses on critical alert and exception information, while the system's detailed help functionality enables administrators to interpret the management information and act quickly on any alerts. This console is used to create and enforce policy and offers easy integration into existing authentication and wired network management systems.
