AirTight WIPS Announces HP ArcSight CEF Certification

(ENP Newswire Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) ENP Newswire - 16 January 2013 Release date- 14012013 - Mountain View, Calif. - AirTight Networks, a global leader in secure Wi-Fi solutions, today announced that AirTight WIPSTM, its patented wireless intrusion prevention system, has achieved HP ArcSight Common Event Format (CEF) certification.

The certification assures that AirTight wireless security alerts can be easily collected and aggregated for analysis in one single tool for security assessment and monitoring as well as platform integration for risk management. AirTight is the only WIPS vendor with this certification thus providing network administrators with complete visibility into the wireless security posture of their network(s).

With this certification, AirTight logs can be viewed in a hybrid environment eliminating administrative burdens. Network administrators can report, search, receive alerts and analyze various types of enterprise log data in one console, enabling them to manage their time and resources in a more efficient manner.

'With aggressive opponents determined to steal data coming from all vectors, network administrators must constantly watch, assess, evaluate and respond quickly. They need an easy way to correlate and act on all information about threats to the network,' said Jatin Parekh, Vice President of Product Management at AirTight. 'By joining best of breed technologies from AirTight and HP, customers benefit from a certified solution to address these security concerns.' 'Enterprises and Governments worldwide increasingly need secure wireless and mobility amidst an increasing wireless threat landscape,' said Buck Watia, director, Business Development, Enterprise Security, HP. 'AirTight is a leading provider of Wireless Intrusion Prevention Solutions and we are glad to have them as a trusted CEF certified partner providing additional visibility for the HP ArcSight platform.' About AirTight WIPS Wireless LAN (WLAN) infrastructure attacks are today one of the most critical and immediate threats to enterprise networks. To make matters worse, the consumerization of Wi-Fi is flooding enterprises with personal Wi-Fi enabled smartphones and tablets, which are inadvertently tearing down the network security perimeter; organizations without an officially deployed WLAN are also at risk. AirTight's wireless intrusion prevention system provides enterprises with continuous and the most comprehensive protection against current and emerging wireless threats.

AirTight WIPS offers proactive, automated wireless intrusion prevention with strong zero-day protection to guard against wireless vulnerabilities. AirTight's patented marker packet technology and industry's unique VLAN Policy MappingTM architecture allows customers to detect a mismatch between wired and wireless assets and security policy settings, which in turn allows protection against many attack sequences which can be launched over access points.

Key Features World's best wireless intrusion prevention technology Automatically detects, blocks and locates rogue APs & other Wi-Fi threats Blocks unapproved smartphones and tablets Off-line sensor mode for fault-tolerant continuous policy enforcement Detects and locates 'non Wi-Fi' interference & RF jamming Smart ForensicsTM for quick resolution of wireless incidents Remote troubleshooting including remote 'live packet capture' Also available on VMware About AirTight Networks AirTight Networks is a global provider of secure Wi-Fi solutions that combine its patented and industry-leading wireless intrusion prevention system (WIPS) technology with the next generation cloud-managed, controller-less Wi-Fi architecture.

Delivering First Class Communications With WebRTC

This webcast captures a recent discussion about WebRTC between Jim Donovan, Director of Product Management at Oracle and Larry Hettick, Editorial Director and Senior Research Fellow at Webtorials. The topics cover WebRTC reliability, interoperability, and security--looking at how Oracle addresses these issues.

Oracle in Enterprise Communications

Most in the industry have heard of the acquisition of Acme Packet by Oracle. What you may not know is that Oracle has a number of telecommunications products including a UC suite, WebRTC Session Controller, and Operations monitoring tools. Oracle is pursuing both the enterprise and service provider.

ConnectCare & Unified Contact Manager

SPAN's ConnectCare is a WebRTC-based telemedicine app, which allows consumers to easily and instantly avail clinical healthcare from the providers, regardless of their location. This app is extremely useful to healthcare providers, patients and their caregivers alike.

WebRTC Security Concerns

This whitepaper covers two of the most relevant topics in communications industry today: WebRTC and security. We will introduce the problem of security in WebRTC including those traditional VoIP attacks that are going to be present in WebRTC services. Later we will mention ad-hoc WebRTC attacks and protection mechanisms, to close with an overview of identity management solutions.

Migrating Real Time Communications Services to the Web

In the Internet age, businesses that own fixed and mobile communication networks, including traditional Communications Service Providers (CSPs) of all kinds, are being challenged with some tough questions: How do we stay relevant to our customers?

Delivering Enterprise-Class Communications with WebRTC

WebRTC is an emerging industry standard for enabling Web browsers with real-time communications capabilities. It enables enterprises to enhance Web sites, empower BYOD users, and improve video collaboration and on-line meetings, to name but a few examples.

WebRTC Report Extract Reprint

This document examines the growing important of WebRTC, both generally and for telecom service providers. It considers the expanding range of use-cases, the multiple layers of interoperability likely to be desired by telcos, and some implications in terms of network integration and mobility.

Robust Enterprise Grade WebRTC Systems and Services


The emerging WebRTC standard has become one of the industry's hottest topics – and with good reason. Being able to "communications enable the web" has Communications Service Providers as well as Enterprises busily making plans for deployment. But, as these plans unfold, reality is starting to intrude on those plans. Our expectations of telephony services are much higher than web browsing. We expect the phone to connect instantly, operate with minimal disruption, and work seamless across any network, anywhere, at any time. There is also an understanding that phone service is inherently secure. With WebRTC, the expectation is for these applications to behave in the same manner.

This session looks at the user experience and expectations of a WebRTC Enterprise service. It will also cover how a WebRTC enterprise handles security, reliability, and interoperability within browsers and networks.

ORACLE COMMUNICATIONS WEBRTC SESSION CONTROLLER

The Oracle Communications WebRTC Session Controller enables communications service providers (CSPs) and enterprises to offer WebRTC services – from virtually any device, across virtually any network – with carrier-grade reliability and security.

ORACLE COMMUNICATIONS WEBRTC SESSION CONTROLLER SOLUTION

Communication Service Provider (CSP) voice service revenues continue to face pressure due to shifts in communication preferences and competition from non-traditional service providers. Voice communications are now often embedded into applications outside the domain of traditional telephony voice usage. CSPs have been challenged to effectively leverage and monetize new web-oriented communications technologies.
