Software secures nets from rogue wireless devices

Aruba's latest security software limits the network resources available to outside wireless devices brought on-site. The company's Client Integrity Module software, which it developed with Sygate, allows sysadmins control access by unmanaged WLAN clients, such as a notebook or PDA brought on-site by visitors. If the foreign devices pass inspection, they can be given controlled access to specific resources. If they fail, they can be blocked or shunted to a quarantine site to get anti-virus upgrades or security patches.

According to tech advisory firm Gartner Group, users increasingly want access from unmanaged systems for which a full personal firewall can't be installed or assumed to be working. As a result, on-demand security is quickly becoming a key issue for enterprises.
