Assessing the Security Capabilities of Top Wi-fi Solutions

According to new research from Miercom, a leading, independent product test center, WatchGuard’s cloud-managed secure Wi-Fi solution is the only product on the market capable of automatically detecting and preventing every type of Wi-Fi security threat. These findings came from a new independent security assessment that examined four top Wi-Fi products for their ability to effectively prevent the six major Wi-Fi security threats: rogue access points, rogue clients, neighboring APs, ad-hoc networks, evil twin APs (those with spoofed SSIDs), and misconfigured APs. This is the first Miercom assessment to analyze Wi-Fi products from a security perspective, illuminating significant issues with the built-in security of many wireless APs.

WatchGuard Launches AuthPoint, Multi-Factor Authentication for Small and Midsize Businesses

New survey reveals that 61 percent of SMBs believe MFA solutions are only accessible for enterprises; WatchGuard’s new cloud-enabled AuthPoint solution delivers easy-to-manage, cost-friendly multi-factor authentication to SMBs

WPA and WPA2 Vulnerabilitie

On October 16, 2017, a statement from the International Consortium for Advancement of Cybersecurity on the Internet (ICASI) was released alerting the industry to a series of vulnerabilities for WPA and WPA2. These vulnerabilities affect a large number of wireless infrastructure devices and wireless clients, across many vendors. This security flaw means
that, for vulnerable clients and access points, WPA and WPA2-encrypted Wi-Fi traffic is no longer secure until certain steps are taken to remediate the issue. The Wi-Fi data stream,including passwords and personal data, can be intercepted, decrypted, and modified without a user’s knowledge.
