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.
