Pwnie Express' solution for wireless network security is Pwn Pulse. By focusing network security on the wireless devices on or around your network, Pulse automatically develops a baseline, improves your ability to segment networks and devices, and sees threats immediately.
To recognize threats to your wireless security, you need to know what constitutes a threat. Most NAC, MDM and WIPS solutions are expensive, have limited reach, and require more staff, while Pulse can efficiently identify different wireless network security threats, including:
Rogue devices are built to gain access to passwords, credit card numbers, keystrokes, or any other confidential information. Rogue Device Detection exposes malicious threats to your wireless network.
With the increase in unknown IoT and BYOD, IT departments often just don’t know what they have on their wireless networks. Our wireless network security solution tracks your assets to make sure they don’t wander to unauthorized connections, segments, or act as network bridges.
Tracking which devices belong on what networks can be a huge challenge for businesses that want to balance speed and unfettered access. Pulse tracks your devices and keeps users where they belong within your enterprise so they don’t unknowingly create a bridge and allow unauthorized devices to siphon valuable information.
A Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attack occurs when attackers flood a targeted service or system in an attempt to overwhelm it and make it unavailable for other users.
These network security threats occur when a malicious actor gets in the middle of communication between two parties in order to gain access to privileged or protected information.
This occurs when a malicious actor gains access to a privileged account. The most common example of this is credit card fraud.
All of these threats are easily preventable with a non-intrusive wireless network security system. These intrusion prevention tools from Pwnie Express help keep your WiFi secure and your assets protected.
Continuous vulnerability scans detect weaknesses in your wireless network and help you identify any potential threats quickly. Pulse automatically detects potential entry points for malicious hardware and protects against threats on or around your wireless network.
Non-intrusive network scans show all devices in a wireless network and even allow users control over devices within a network. Scans detect unauthorized devices that are trying to access your network. By performing continuous non-intrusive network scans, you can always know when a device outside of your network has or is trying to gain access.
This process detects devices that are trying to connect your network to another outside of the organization. Devices attempting to bridge networks can be instantly identified and removed from your wireless network. This keeps your private information protected and your assets secure.

Anticipate and shutdown intrusion attempts
With distributed vulnerability management, continuous wireless network assessments and remote pentesting, Pulse can make compliance easier for:
CSC #1 is a baseline requirement that is considered a foundational requirement and is prevalent in all compliance requirements. It requires that you actively manage (inventory, track, and correct) all hardware devices on the network so that only authorized devices are given access, and unauthorized and unmanaged devices are found and prevented from gaining access.
The Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard is needed by companies who accept credit card payments. If you plan to process and transmit data from credit card holders, you need to be PCI compliant. Having an intrusion prevention system will help you be PCI compliant.
The North American Electric Reliability Corporation enforces reliability standards for the supply of power in North America. NERC compliance is mandatory, and wireless network security is important for approval.
The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act is the standard for making sure patient data is secure and protected. Wireless network security is paramount in protecting sensitive patient information.
The Federal Energy Regulatory Commision regulates interstate transmission and sales of natural gas and electricity in the U.S. Any company that buys or sells natural gas or electricity must be compliant with FERC security standards, and network security is a huge aspect of that.
