Cyberoam Offers SMB Wireless Network Security Appliance
Its new series of wireless network security appliances designed for SMBs supports up to eight virtual access points.
In an attempt to minimize the risk of information theft and cyber-terrorism attacks due to their inability to trace end users, Cyberoam, a division of Elitecore Technologies, has launched a series of wireless network security appliances. As reported on Silicon India, these appliances come with an in-built wireless access point featuring 802.11 n/b/g standards, MIMO technology and support for up to eight virtual access points and will reduce the overall cost in managing Wireless Local Area Network (WLAN) environments for Small- Medium Business with up to 50 users which involve WI-FI routers and firewalls.
"According to the VP-Product Management, and Cyberoam, Abhilash Sonwane, Organizations are usually comfortable securing their wired networks; however, they can be oblivious to the threats posed by wireless networks. For instance, as when providing Internet access to guest users, a common pre-shared key is used for authentication, a technique which lacks identity-based controls.The appliances deliver the entire battery of UTM security features over WLAN for protecting home offices, remote offices as well as public Internet access outlets.
