Discover how to implement secure wireless LAN access (WLAN) across the enterprise network! In record numbers, organizations are embracing mobility and wireless access (WLAN). They demand hassle-free, anytime, anywhere access that enables employees to be connected and productive 24/7. While mobility and wireless network access are highly desirable, maintaining security remains a key concern for enterprises. The greater the number of WLANs an enterprise has, the greater risk there is that the network can be hacked or attacked. Learn how the 802.1X standard for port-based network access control:
- Ensures network credentials remain secure over a wireless link or wired connection.
- Guarantees that the user and device are who and what they claim to be.
- Assures users/administrators that they are connecting to the approved enterprise network.
- Ensure that the network is not being spoofed or hacked.
