Motorola Provides Proactive Wireless LAN Security Testing

Motorola's Enterprise Mobility Solutions introduced an AirDefense Wireless Vulnerability Assessment solution designed for proactively assessing the security posture of wireless networks. The solution provides active wireless testing capable of evaluating every deployed wireless access point. Motorola said that by simulating active attacks from a hacker's point-of-view, its AirDefense Wireless Vulnerability Assessment solution allows administrators to proactively assess the security of sensitive systems on the wireless network, such as cardholder data systems. The automated Wireless Vulnerability Assessment technology avoids the need to send personnel or consultants to remote offices and stores to manually conduct testing required for PCI DSS 1.2 compliance.
