Technical innovations and market trends have led to proliferation of Wi-Fi. But with its rapid expansion, also comes the necessity of network monitoring, security and visualization. The pain points surrounding these aspects are still unanswered. Addressing these predicaments head on is California headquartered AirTight Networks, a company with R&D & engineering centers in Pune.
AirTight is a company with a difference, owing to its massively scalable controller-less Wi-Fi technology that has bundled the industry's award winning wireless intrusion prevention system (WIPS). With thousands of customers that are the Who's Who of Government, business and industry spanning all continents, the company cuts across geographies and industry verticals.
Enterprise data security still remains the biggest concern for the corporate counsel. Specifically, two new industry trends are evidently making it worse. First, the rapid growth of Wi-Fi in remote offices of distributed enterprises requires the same controls and visibility as the corporate headquarters. Second, as the BYOD tide rises, organizations are striving to embrace Wi-Fi access while tackling challenges in Wi-Fi security. AirTight, through its unique innovative practices, has addressed these challenges by providing both on-premise and cloud based solutions, with over 24 patents.
"Wi-Fi is now becoming a mainstream connectivity vehicle for end users and hence the need for security and manageability is acute," says Kiran Deshpande, Co-Founder & President, AirTight Networks. "Addressing such complex operation deployments are possible with our globally distributed data centers that offer five 9s uptime with local and WAN-based high availability and redundancy,"he adds.
