Government / Public Safety
With technology changing rapidly it is vital to ensure information that is sent to public servants, law enforcement officials and military personnel is secure. Every type of government entity can benefit from enterprise management solutions that balance the seemingly conflicting goals of easy access and strong security. Wavelink Avalanche SecurePlus can ensure that confidential information remains so. Wavelink provides the complete solution for 802.11 provisioning via extensive support for industry standard encryption and authentication protocols. Wavelink provides AP detection and reporting with various IDS-oriented enhancements to assist with identification, alerting, monitoring, and reporting of potential threats, and a full view into the state of the agency’s security. System security is ensured through the encryption of communication channels and database encryption on sensitive fields, such as passwords and keys.
City departments are made up of numerous fleet vehicles, such as police and fire vehicles, that contain onboard laptops and smartphones. Keeping these devices managed and secure despite their location is vital. Wavelink ensures that critical information is received and that devices are managed regardless of their physical location. Through the use of Device Location Mapping, administrators can take security one step further by tracking a device location using GPS and cell tower associations. With Device Location Mapping, administrators can zoom into the exact street level of a device and receive a pinpoint location, as well as other important information like the current latitude, longitude, heading and speed of the device, and even a location history (breadcrumbs). By pinpointing rogue devices, administrators can easily lock them down and prevent highly sensitive information from ending up in the wrong hands.
Wireless mobile laptops are unquestionably powerful tools, but they can be virtually useless in an emergency if they are not kept up to date. With Wavelink Avalanche, device updates, including software patches can be automatically pushed down to every single vehicle’s laptop without the need to physically bring in critical vehicles and personnel.
Wavelink provides proven software for centralized management of the wireless LAN lifecycle: planning, deployment, security, monitoring and maintenance. It enhances the reliability and security of your network—and the devices and applications it supports.
