Overview: With wireless being the unguided medium that it is, organizations large and small are rightfully concerned about both the security and performance of their Wi-Fi network. Not only is the data not running over a fixed and well-known path, its apparent quirks make monitoring the wireless network that much more important.

Beyond performance monitoring, many organizations must verify that wireless security policies are being followed and, if not, find ways to enforce them. This report analyzes the market and user experiences with WIDPS and lays out the product choices, helping you pick the right system for your needs.

Vendors represented in the twenty-two page report include: AirDefense, AirMagnet, AirTight Networks, Network Chemistry, BelAir, Cisco, Motorola, Trapeze, Aruba, Xirrus, Colubris, Extreme, Extricom, NextHop, Meru, Siemens, 3Com and BlueSocket.
