Distributed Wireless Security Monitoring Systems: Page 6 of 6

Performance monitoring was not strong in the first few releases, but metrics such as number of associated clients for an AP, bandwidth usage and average noise level have been added. And another me-too product enhancement has been added--integration with Cisco's WLSE, which allows wiredside blocking, a feature that competitor AirMagnet has had for some time. Overall, the AirTight SpectraGuard Enterprise is a strong point release that deserves careful review for those considering wireless IDS systems.
