Answered Question

Hi,

I want to know, how does the WIPs works in MSE. I have implemented the CAS but don't have idea about the working of MSE when using WIPs on WCS.

Can you please suggest or show me a link which gives me the idea.


Any help in this will be really appreciable.

Thanks !

Well the MSE is also the db for history record keeping.


Q. Do I need an MSE and Adaptive wIPS software license if I just want to do rogue detection?


A. No. Rogue detection capabilities come with the WLAN controllers and  WCS. MSE and Adaptive wIPS software licenses are required to detect  over-the-air threats such as reconnaissance, encryption cracking,  authentication cracking, denial-of-service (DoS) attacks, and potential  threats indicated by anomalous traffic patterns. MSE and Adaptive wIPS  also provide full-forensics traffic captures, long-term security event  archiving, and reporting, wIPS default tuning profiles, and a threat  knowledgebase with plain-English attack descriptions and response  guidance for ease of operations.
