Watchguard WIPS

Best WIPS in the Industry

Cybercriminals have abundant opportunities to steal personal data, eavesdrop, and spread malware over Wi-Fi. How hard is it for a criminal to attack in your airspace? Right now there are over 300,000 videos on YouTube explaining how to hack Wi-Fi users with simple-to-use but highly powerful tools easily found online. From man-in-the-middle and denial-of-service attacks to unauthorised devices and rogue APs, you’ve got your hands full.

WatchGuard’s cloud-managed access points have built-in WIPS to help ensure you have the protection you need. Using patented Marker Packet technology, WatchGuard WIPS defends your airspace 24/7 from unauthorised devices, rogue APs, and malicious attacks – and with close to zero false positives. With WatchGuard cloud-managed APs running WIPS, IT pros can deliver the high-performance wireless connectivity their users demand, without compromising on security.

What Makes WatchGuard WIPS Unique?

WatchGuard WIPS has patented Marker Packet technology that reliably detects and classifies all access points and connected devices, such as smartphones and tablets, on or around your airspace as authorised, external, or rogue. This advanced rogue detection process, missing in other WIPS products on the market, ensures that ONLY unacceptable connections get shut down immediately, without illegally disrupting neighbouring Wi-Fi networks.

Flexible WIPS Deployment Options

Each WatchGuard AP can be installed as a dedicated WIPS sensor, which means that instead of delivering Wi-Fi traffic to users, it is 100% dedicated to scanning the air and preventing Wi-Fi attacks. You also have the option to install in shared AP/WIPS mode, where an AP spends a portion of its time both delivering traffic and fending off attacks. WatchGuard APs can even be installed as dedicated WIPS sensors in an environment with competing access points, delivering the best WIPS security on the market on top of an existing Wi-Fi network.
