NAC for wired and wireless

About The Course

This training will help the participant will get to know why just maintaining a strong wireless encryption forms only a small part in securing their wired or wireless networks. NAC solutions go a step further and can protect an organization against threats such as rogue access points, DoS attacks etc. Participants will get to know how an effective defense involves strong correlation between wired and wireless networks, which requires tight integration between WLAN management and intrusion detection systems.

NAC for wired and wireless)

Many network managers assume a strong wireless encryption is sufficient for building strong security for wireless LAN (WLAN) traffic. They are only partially correct. WPA2 encryption might offer better authentication and encryption options, but WLANs can still have vulnerabilities like:

  • Rogue access points (APs);
  • Denial-of-service attacks; and
  • Attacks against WLAN infrastructure.

This can lead to sensitive data leakage from the organization.

An effective defense involves strong correlation between wired and wireless networks, which requires tight integration between WLAN management and intrusion detection systems. Thus, there exists a need for a comprehensive WLAN enterprise security solution to protect valuable corporate data and intellectual property from getting compromised.
