Network monitoring system designed to detect un-wanted wireless networks
This new Linux-based wireless intrusion detection system is aimed at stopping a network's security from being compromised by detecting the installation of unauthorized access points. The wireless detection system utilizes wireless drones to develop a wireless network solely to detect any wireless signals that emanate from within their workplace. By incorporating a GPS module the location of any intruding device can be pinpointed. A standard web interface allows the administrator to monitor network usage; the system uses e-mail and pop-up alerts to signal possible intrusions of the network.
This non-wireless intrusion detection system was developed to respond to customer demands for more security in their workplace, including having their network completely non-wireless.
"While our customers have their networks protected against intrusion from their wired network connection, most do not have a way of keeping rogue access points from being connected to the network. Often these access points will have little or no encryption which creates a huge hole in the network's security," said Richard Schrock, Vice President of Wireless Builders. "By installing this low-cost, intrusion detection system, our customers can be certain that they have the most secure wired network possible."
