Tired of Rogues?: Solutions for Detectingand Eliminating Rogue Wireless NetworksThis paper provides an overview of the different types of rogue wirelessdevices, risks faced by enterprises due to their proliferation and multipleapproaches to detecting and mitigating them. The AirDefense solutionallows enterprises to effectively detect and eliminate all types of rogues.

Businesses are not only migrating to wireless networking, “By 2006,they are steadily integrating wireless technology and associated components into their wired infrastructure.The demand for Wireless Local Area Networks (WLANs) is fueled by the growth of mobile computing devices, 80 percentsuch as laptops and personal digital assistants and a desire by users for continual connections to the network of enterprisewithout having to “plug in. ” WLAN networks will remain vulnerable to intrusion. Action Item: Perform wireless intrusion detection to discover rogue access points, foreign devices connecting to corporate Figure 1: Wireless WLAN adoptor Trends access pointsFigure 1 shows the trends in WLAN adoption based on a Gartner Dataquest survey. Over 50% enterprises havedeployed wireless. The growth in wireless hotspots has also been astonishing.
