Advanced security features
Avalanche has always delivered a high level of security to customers and still remains the complete solution for 802.11 provisioning via extensive support for industry standard encryption and authentication protocols. Avalanche supports a full range of wireless encryption and authentication protocols, including WEP (Key Rotation), WPA with TKIP, WPA2 with AES-CCMP, and 802.1X based EAP types such as LEAP, PEAPv0, PEAPv1, EAP-TTLS and EAP-TLS. With Avalanche, organizations have additional tools available to manage and monitor security settings across the entire wireless ecosystem. With improved rogue AP detection and reporting with various IDS-oriented enhancements to assist with identification, alerting, monitoring, and reporting of potential threats, Avalanche gives administrators a full view into the state of the enterprise’s security. System security is ensured through the encryption of communication channels and database encryption on sensitive fields such as passwords and keys.
PCI and Sarbanes-Oxley compliance tools
Avalanche helps address corporate and regulatory requirements such as PCI and Sarbanes-Oxley through enhanced tools such as alerts, reports, and audit logs. For example, if an AP comes online with the manufacturer default password, Avalanche can not only alert the administrator, but offer a facility to immediately change the password. Avalanche lets you set, and continually enforce wireless network and security configurations using powerful profiles that apply policies based on defined criteria. Administrators also gain support for client-side certificates and device lockdown rules. To prevent unwanted intrusions, Avalanche detects foreign and rogue access points and client devices, while offering centralized access to control lists for infrastructure and role-based user access to the console.
Automated mobile device and data protection & encryption
With Avalanche, enhance device and data protection even when away from the network. Employ encryption or destruction policies for files and directories when a device is vulnerable. With Avalanche, administrators can restrict access to the device, its applications and data. Combined with client-side intelligence, Avalanche guards against the compromise of sensitive data when a device is lost or stolen.
Avalanche now supports secure client enrollment system to allow end-users to receive Wi-Fi Personal and Wi-Fi Enterprise policies, peripheral control (camera, Bluetooth™, etc.), VPN configuration, application restrictions (YouTube, iTunes, etc.), email policies together with support for Microsoft Exchange and PIN / Lock policies.
Avalanche improves security by providing the ability to remotely wipe a device, or a remote wipe of a device utilizing Exchange, as well as remote device lock and directory encryption.
