Rogue devices compromise IT security
As a network manager, one of your daily challenges is ensuring the security of your company’s infrastructure. Rogue devices on your wireless network can compromise the security of your organization’s sensitive data assets. A compromised network could cost your organization a fortune in fines, compensation and legal fees.
You need to ask yourself:
- Are rogue devices compromising the security of my wireless network?
- What is in my airspace and on my network?
- How quickly can I respond to the presence of a suspicious rogue?
