WatchGuard’s New Cloud-based Wi-Fi Solution Aims to Take the Guesswork Out of Wi-Fi Security

WatchGuard Wi-Fi Cloud connects and protects SMBs with fully automated wireless threat prevention as well as interactive engagement and analytics features.

Network security solutions provider WatchGuard Technologies has unveiled Wi-Fi Cloud, a scalable Wi-Fi management platform and a new family of cloud-ready access points. When deployed together, this next-generation secure wireless solution delivers a wireless intrusion prevention system (WIPS) and turns Wi-Fi hot spots into consumer research, analytics, and push marketing tools.

The WIPS technology built into WatchGuard’s new cloud-ready APs (AP120 and AP320) enable users to:

  • Automatically detect and disable rogue wireless devices and attacks.
  • Pinpoint the location of connected wireless devices or sources of interference, allowing administrators to quickly take action.
  • Deploy in a variety of configurations. The solution can be installed as an overlay on top of an existing WLAN infrastructure or as a stand-alone enforcement system for Wi-Fi prohibited zones.

WatchGuard Wi-Fi Cloud management features also include:

  • Custom Splash Pages and Social Wi-Fi Engagement – Captive portals allow businesses to personalize customer Wi-Fi experiences by offering promotional opportunities, surveys, and strong authentication through social applications.
  • Mobile Engagement – Delivers custom messages to customers via SMS, MMS, and social networks, based on predefined triggers including user interaction and length of time on-network.
  • Wi-Fi Analytics – Data is collected via passive scans, active scans and user connections in and around Wi-Fi networks. Users can analyze the data to provide insight into traffic patterns, behavior, and demographics of Wi-Fi users.

“Today’s savvy businesses realize that safe and reliable Wi-Fi is a basic requirement, but many SMBs and distributed enterprise organizations struggle to deliver it. We’ve developed a comprehensive solution that dramatically simplifies how businesses deploy and manage wireless, while at the same time elevating Wi-Fi security standards,” says Ryan Orsi, director of wireless products at WatchGuard. “In addition to security, the WatchGuard Wi-Fi Cloud makes it easier for organizations to turn Wi-Fi into an extension of their brand, an interactive experience for their customers, and a powerful analytics tool.”

WatchGuard Wi-Fi Cloud subscriptions, along with the AP120 and AP320, are now available. For more information, visit https://www.watchguard.com/wifi.
