MSE Blog Series Part 4: wIPS

To continue the MSE Blog Series, I'm going to take you on a journey to dig deep into one of the features of Release 7.4, wIPS!

With the increasing popularity of BYOD, wireless security has become an eminent concern for Network Administrators. Cisco Unified Wireless Intrusion Prevention Solution (WIPS) is dedicated to protecting the wireless network security and provide a secure wireless experience to the clients. Cisco, allied with Flukes Networks, to constantly monitor new wireless intrusion techniques, develop new signatures and provide preventive solutions. In 7.4 release, we added the capability of detecting 802.11 frame fuzzing attacks. The new signatures patterns, for detecting such attacks, are available through WIPS profile configuration in NCS. These signature patterns are enabled by default and provide the full level of security. The user, however, could tune them to get the desired protection level.

Activate the IT Transformation with Cisco Unified Access: Part 1

With the ever growing demands placed on IT organizations to “do more with less” it is becoming apparent that the way we deploy the network infrastructure, how we administer policies and how we manage the whole thing needs to evolve.

Why is IT spending so much time maintaining separate wired, wireless and VPN networks? We need to focus on the business that is banging on the door telling you to support more mobile and wired devices, more bandwidth hungry applications and extend that support well beyond the walls of corporate facilities.

How can we simplify how IT operates and still deliver a high-performance, high-quality connected experience? Cisco Unified Access can help! We announced the webinar series earlier this week, and part 1 is just around the corner.

In next Wednesday’s webinar (CLICK TO REGISTER) we will discuss:

  • The industry perspective regarding challenges surrounding, BYOD, Mobility and the Internet of Everything
  • The latest Cisco technology that can help you simplify and optimize you network
  • How a unified access network can improve performance and operations
  • Deploying consistent and contextual policies will improve access control and enforcement
  •  How reducing operational complexity can accelerate device deployment and end user problem resolution.

Announcing Cisco Unified Access Webinar Series

The ever-increasing number of devices and applications coming into the workplace poses complex challenges for the enterprise. As a result, IT must adapt the ways in which they enable, manage, and secure end-user access.

  • How will the network handle increased demand for bring-your-own-device (BYOD) policies and mobility?
  • How can IT maintain raised expectations for wired devices, while improving the end-user experience?

To solidify IT as a key contributor in driving better business processes, IT teams must shift from maintaining the network to delivering innovative, connected experiences. The key to success is to simplify the network, and Cisco Unified Access does just that.

Mark your calendars for our five-part webinar series to learn how to create an effective, unified access strategy. Find out how to transform IT to better address the demands of BYOD and next-generation technology.
