Startup takes on WLAN security
AirDefense Inc. will launch this week its wireless LAN security appliance, which includes vulnerability assessment and other features to provide the same level of security for wireless networks that's available in the wired world, said officials of the Alpharetta, Ga., company.

The console manages the network and displays data on the alerts raised by the intrusion detection system, a list of discovered access points on the network and views of the activity on each channel.
