CA preps wireless site management software
Computer Associates International Inc. previewed Monday at its user show in Las Vegas a new tool for managing wireless networks that early users say provides critical monitoring and security functionality.
CA's Wireless Site Management (WSM), now in beta testing and expected to be widely available later this year, draws on technology from CA's security and management product lines to create a stand-alone tool for protecting wireless LANs. The software automatically generates and distributes encryption keys, allowing administrators to rotate keys as often as they like without requiring users to manually change their settings. WSM also allows administrators to establish access perimeters and detect rogue devices on their networks.
