AirMagnet Enterprise is a centralized system that proactively protects WiFi networks and users from all types of threats, ensures maximum network performance and uptime and arms staff with the tools to solve problems quickly and remotely. AirMagnet Enterprise does this by going to the true source of WiFi threats and problems – the airspace itself.
The solution provides full-time automated analysis of all WiFi traffic, channels, devices, their connection state as well as optional spectrum analysis of non-WiFi devices and sources of interference. This full time view lets you get to the root-cause of any problem instead of just seeing the symptoms, while ensuring full visibility and control over the wireless boundary between your network assets and the outside world.

24x7 Wireless Intrusion Detection and Preventions
AirMagnet Enterprise scans all possible 802.11 channels (including the 200 extended channels), ensuring there are no blind spots where rogue devices may be hiding. AirMagnet Enterprise goes beyond Wi-Fi analysis with optional spectrum analysis that detects and classifies RF jamming attacks, Bluetooth devices and many other non-802.11 transmitter types, such as unapproved wireless cameras.
The AirWISE engine constantly analyzes all wireless devices and traffic using a combination of frame inspection, stateful pattern analysis, statistical modeling, RF analysis and anomaly detection, enabling detection of hundreds of specific threats, attacks and vulnerabilities such as rogue devices, spoofed devices, DoS attacks, man-in-the-middle attacks, evil twins, as well as the most recent hacking tools and techniques such as MDK3, Karmetasploit and 802.11n DoS attacks.
Dynamic Threat Protection Technology
Dynamic Threat Update technology speeds the creation, automation and immediate deployment of new threat signatures through the AirMagnet AirWISE® engine. As soon as any new threat definition is ready, it can be deployed with no impact to system operation, providing a unique framework for maintaining the most up-to-date WLAN security posture for the enterprise.
Threat Tracing, Blocking & Mapping
Threat Tracing, Blocking & Mapping All devices are traced using a suite of wired and wireless tracing methods to quickly and reliably determine if a device is connected to the wired network. The system uses a newly enhanced set of sophisticated techniques, including use of SNMP, automated switch discovery and hardware and traffic analysis to ensure accurate, fast tracing in any network topology.
Threats can be manually or automatically remediated with a combination of both wired and wireless threat suppression. Wireless blocking targets a threat at the source and specifically blocks the targeted wireless device from making any wireless connections. Wired blocking automatically closes the wired switch port where a threat has been traced.
All threats and devices can be located on a map or floorplan and set to trigger rogue alarms based on the device’s location.
Massive Scalability & System Resiliency
AirMagnet Enterprise offers the only solution in the industry to meet the established standards of a mission critical security application. It is the only system to build fault-tolerance into each component, with fail-over boot images in every sensor and automatic server fail-over licenses that come standard with the system. Additionally, AirMagnet Enterprise sensors can operate as fully independent IDS/IPS nodes detecting and remediating threats without losing information, even if the network connection to the server is lost for days.
With intelligent sensors that locally analyse WiFi and RF conditions, more than 1,000 sensors can be supported through single centralized server in the data center, requiring minimal network bandwidth.
Processing at the sensor level means that each sensor continues to enforce the security policy even if a connection to the server is lost for more than 24 hours. Hot standby server software (included) enables fully redundant data center operations for maximum wireless security protection.
AirMagnet Enterprise can capture a complete packet or RF forensic record of any network event, allowing appropriate staff to investigate the issue in depth, at any time. By leveraging its unique intelligent sensors, AirMagnet Enterprise provides the only solution in the industry to automatically capture forensic information from before, during and after the event.
Performance Monitoring and Remote Troubleshooting
In addition to rich security features, AirMagnet Enterprise constantly monitors the health of the wireless LAN and RF environment to proactively detect evolving problems that can lead to an interruption to the network. The system detects these issues, gives engineers topical remediation advise and includes active remote tools to troubleshoot the issue. This allows staff to avoid network downtime and vastly reduce the time-to-fix for any outage, leading to more uptime, improved user satisfaction and a higher performing network.
Integrated 802.11n and Spectrum Intelligence
The AirMagnet Enterprise system can monitor the RF Spectrum and 802.11n traffic. AirMagnet Enterprise performs a complete interference analysis of the air. This includes co-channel interference from Wi-Fi devices, as well as optional spectrum analysis of non-Wi-Fi devices, such as microwave ovens, cordless phones or legacy wireless equipment.
AirMagnet Enterprise goes beyond simple 802.11n support to provide managers with hands-on 802.11n optimization tools and intelligence focused on real-world performance and network throughput. Tools include live diagnostics of any 802.11n connection that automatically highlights and explains how performance can be improved.
Automated Business and Regulatory Compliance Reporting
AirMagnet Enterprise provides automated compliance reporting for all major network regulations including PCI, HIPAA, Sarbanes-Oxley, GLBA and more. Reports provide instant visibility into issues that may need to be addressed for compliance and exactly what needs to be fixed. Reports can be scheduled to run and delivered automatically, ensuring a complete library of regulatory reports in the case of an audit.
