Aerohive, Aruba Networks announce cloud based WLAN management services, is wireless vulnerability scanning far behind?
It seems that WLAN management and security are finally moving to the cloud.
Enterprises, namely SMBs, now have multiple options and price points for managing their wireless networks. We saw this trend about 18 months ago when AirTight decided to release a SaaS verion of our wireless IPS, SpectraGuard Online.
With the introduction of these new offerings, it will be interesting to see if the ASV’s begin to offer wireless vulnerability scanning. They already offer cloud based vulnerability scanning services for the wired network, why not wireless??
