AirTight, CWNP Team Up

MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif. -- AirTight NetworksT, the leading provider of wireless perimeter security solutions, today announced a partnership with CWNP, the industry standard for wireless LAN training and certification. AirTight Networks' SpectraGuardR products will become part of the labs taught to students in the CWNP instructor-led training courses. CWNP classes give IT professionals the necessary skills for implementing, managing, and securing wireless networks in the enterprise by creating solutions using tools from the industry's leading manufacturers.

"The demand for CWNP certifications continues to rise in a market place where wireless networks are growing at an astounding rate, and skilled individuals are needed to install, secure, and maintain them cost effectively," says Kevin Sandlin, CEO and co-founder of CWNP. "AirTight Networks is a great addition to the CWNP curriculum because their wireless intrusion prevention system (WIPS) gives CWNP students unique insight into how real enterprises can use RF management and wireless LAN security to support real business applications."

CWNP was named one of the top 3 fastest growing certifications in a CRN Certification Study. AirTight Networks joins over 20 industry-leading wireless LAN vendors that recommend or require CWNP certification of their sales engineers and VARs.

"We are delighted to be a part of the CWNP wireless certification program," said Dennis Tsu, vice president of marketing for AirTight Networks.
