WiFi Manager is a combined WLAN security and management software for 802.11 a/b/g networks. It enables WLAN administrators in large corporations, educational institutions, hospitals, and WISPs to seamlessly secure, configure, and monitor their wireless networks, while significantly reducing the costs associated with those tasks. WiFi Manager supports wireless LAN hardware from most leading vendors, including Cisco, Proxim, Symbol, 3Com, Avaya, HP, Dell, and more. The software presents a Web-based view of all wireless networks, access points available inside each network, status of those access points, the channel at which they operate, mobile clients connected to them and their signal strength/ noise values, and association history. It also helps to configure/ upgrade firmware of access points. When integrated with RF sensors, WiFi Manager becomes a full-fledged wireless IDS system detecting more than 40 unique security threats including: rogue APs, intrusions, denial-of-service attacks, and vulnerabilities.
