AirWave RAPIDS User’s Guide

Overview

AirWave RAPIDS™ Rogue Detection automatically detects and locates unauthorized access points and utilizes a set of rules to highlight the most important threats to your organization. RAPIDS uses existing, authorized Access Points to scan the RF environment for any unauthorized devices in range. It also scans your wired network to determine if the wirelessly detectedrogues are physically connected to the local network, and to look for additional unauthorized devices in areas without wireless coverage. In addition, RAPIDS captures and manages IDS events detected by wireless LAN controllers. RAPIDS then correlates all of this data and uses a set of customizable rules to highlight those devices that are truly a threat to the organization, greatly reducing false positives and allowing you to work more efficiently.

RAPIDS works in conjunction with the Aruba controller WIP module to offer customers a comprehensive Wireless Intrusion Protection Solution (WIPS). Customers can deploy this solution with “hybrid” APs serving as both APs and sensors or as an overlay architecture where Aruba APs act as dedicated sensors called air monitors (AMs). RAPIDS uses data from both the dedicated sensors and deployed APs to provide the most complete view of your wireless environment. The solution improves network security, manages compliance requirements and reduces the cost of manual security efforts.
