Key issues, metrics and processes to consider for effective benchmarking of any WIPS product.
Network buyers, enterprise IT architects and others involved in wireless networks need to understand the degree to which wireless intrusion prevention systems (WIPS) can protect enterprise users and network resources from internal and external intrusions. Network IT needs a systematic approach to evaluating and benchmarking WIPS products. This paper identifies the chief factors with regards to protection, performance and ease-of-use for WIPS offerings that users need to address, and insights into the most practical way to benchmark these essential criteria.
The information provided in this white paper is from The Tolly Group's own hands-on experience benchmarking a variety of WIPS products. Some of the insights in this report also have been gleaned from interviews with product architects from AirTight Networks.
