Ekahau Locates Air Defense

ATLANTA -- AirDefense
, the leader in anywhere, anytime wireless LAN (WLAN) security and monitoring, today announced the integration of Ekahau's advanced location tracking capabilities into AirDefense Enterprise.
Ekahau is recognized as the leading provider of software-based wireless location tracking. Through this partnership, AirDefense can offer Ekahau's patented Ekahau Positioning Engine(TM) solution as a part of AirDefense Enterprise. The combined solution will enable enterprises to efficiently and accurately pinpoint the real-time location of rogue end user devices and access points from a centralized location.

The AirDefense-Ekahau partnership is part of AirDefense's extensible platform, which allows customers to invest in the AirDefense system and plug additional value into the system through the purchase of additional capabilities such as location tracking.

"In doing our research it became apparent to us that Ekahau has developed one of the best positioning engine technologies on the market," said Scott Hrastar, chief technology officer of AirDefense. "Ekahau has completed fundamental research in location tracking and has a good history in the space. With the partnership we know we are offering our customers superior tracking performance, accuracy and scalability."

Unlike other tools that rely solely on inaccurate theoretical or predictive models, Ekahau creates visualizations of RF coverage, or RF fingerprinting, which is based on actual RF performance data. The end result is a more accurate finding of rogue access points, stations or other devices.

"By partnering with AirDefense, customers with security concerns will now be able to take advantage of our location tracking technology, a market not previously addressed by Ekahau," said Tuomo Rutanen, vice president business development for Ekahau. "Bringing together the two companies is a positive step in providing customers the best of breed technologies for both their security and monitoring needs."
