AirDefense Enterprise Appliance for Brocade Mobility solutions provides the most powerful wireless Intrusion Prevention System (IPS) available. Scaling to meet the needs of the largest global organizations, this appliance provides complete protection against wireless threats, policy compliance monitoring, robust performance monitoring and troubleshooting, and location tracking capabilities.
This platform combines collaborative intelligence with secure sensors that work in tandem with purpose built server appliances to monitor all 802.11 (a/b/g) wireless traffic in real time for the highest levels of security, rogue mitigation, and policy enforcement.
Packaged in a 2 U chassis, the AirDefense 4250 provides large capacity storage in RAID 1 configurations and a redundant power supply for large to very large WLAN deployments. It accommodates Intel Xeon processor and supports fully buffered DDR2 memory.
Comprehensive intrusion detection
AirDefense Enterprise Appliance provides the industry's most comprehensive detection of wireless intrusion attempts. By analyzing existing and day-zero threats in real time against historical data, it can accurately detect all wireless attacks and anomalous behavior. With context-aware detection, correlation, and multidimensional detection engines, it detects only meaningful security events and maintains the lowest rate of false-positive alarms. Moreover, this wireless protection platform offers the industry's most extensive event library, with more than 200 security and performance events.
AirDefense Enterprise Appliance responds automatically to wireless threats by stopping the suspect device before it can damage the network. By responding on both wireless and wired networks, this appliance provides the industry's most secure wireless intrusion prevention solution. To help ensure that only the correct intruders and rogue devices are disconnected, the appliance performs highly targeted terminations. It also maintains a record of termination actions to enable a reliable audit trail. In addition, the appliance complies with FCC regulations and helps eliminate the liability that could be associated with stopping a device in a wireless manner.
Stop rogue devices from connecting to the network
Rogue devices are a serious threat to enterprise security, and a single rogue access point can allow an attacker to gain full access to the internal network. To prevent this from happening, AirDefense Enterprise Appliance can identify any rogue devices and disable them automatically if it is connected to the internal network.
Comply with enterprise and regulatory policies
Using AirDefense Enterprise Appliance, organizations can define, monitor, and enforce WLAN policies in the areas of security, performance, usage, and vendor types. In addition, it can minimize vulnerability by ensuring that wireless devices are using the proper security protocols. When a device is found to be non-compliant, the system notifies administrators about the specific discrepancy.
Investigate incidents with forensic data
AirDefense Enterprise Appliance provides forensic data that helps organizations retrace any device's steps down to the minute. With forensic research, investigating an event takes minutes instead of potentially hours. Moreover, cases that normally would have required administrators to physically visit sites can now be investigated remotely.
Troubleshoot network performance
With a real-time view of all WLAN traffic, AirDefense Enterprise Appliance enables organizations to remotely troubleshoot problems, identify and respond to network misconfiguration, and monitor network availability. The appliance analyzes traffic flow to interpret WLAN performance and identify valuable information such as usage characteristics, interference from neighboring WLANs, channel overlap, and performance degradation.
Location trackingProduct Highlights
Powerful location tracking technology enables organizations to minimize the amount of time required to find specific devices. After importing images of a floor plan and specifying the characteristics of the building, organizations can consistently locate devices within four cubicles.
