AirTight Networks has launched the latest version of SpectraGuard adding a performance dashboard and reports and IPv6 support.

SpectraGuard version 6.0 applies what the company calls smart forensics and predictive performance. It said that it applies its approach of simplicity and ease of use for wireless LAN security to WLAN performance management and forensics.

Sri Sundaralingam, vice president of product management at AirTight, claimed that version 6.0 was major ‘in terms of providing intrusion protection' as it was ‘enabling performance management and identifying problems'.

He said: “Traditional forensics provide too much raw data requiring manual inspection and interpretation, a high level of RF expertise and are time consuming. As they scale their networks, our customers need reliable tools that allow them to quickly see what factors or threats are impacting the network, drill down to the heart of the problem and resolve it quickly.

“AirTight has applied the same philosophy of accuracy and simplicity to WLAN forensics and performance that it applies to wireless intrusion prevention – that is keep it simple, weed out irrelevant data and allow the user to proactively monitor and manage only what matters.”
