Cisco fortifies WLAN security

Monday, 19 July 2004, 12:56 PM EST

Cisco Systems Inc. is preparing to introduce products to its WLAN line that add support for AES, among other security and management features.

While Cisco is not the first wireless LAN provider to embrace Advanced Encryption Standard, its support will bring peace of mind to many IT managers who have standardized on the leading enterprise WLAN provider's technology—especially those required to offer government-caliber security for their wireless networks.

By year's end, Cisco will introduce "Kodiak," an 802.11a radio module for the popular Aironet AP1200 access point, according to sources familiar with the San Jose, Calif., company's plans. Kodiak supports the IEEE 802.11i security protocol, ratified last month, which is based largely on AES.
