Two Main Causes of Rogue AP Threats
1. Employee BYOD policy
2. Customers connecting to the network
When it comes to security, critical networks take priority; those networks over which confidential information such as credit card and social security numbers are being processed and transmitted. When a rogue access point is placed on a network, the security becomes severely compromised.
For the protection of customers, many regulations, including PCI DSS, specifically cite the need for rogue access point scanning as a part of a compliant network security posture. By implementing Nuspire's Rogue Wireless Detection Service, companies exceed regulatory requirements through the offering of detailed wireless access point reporting and potential rogue access point detection on local area networks.
"Relying on wired side scanning tools (e.g. tools that scan suspicious hardware MAC addresses on switches) may identify some unauthorized wireless devices. However, they tend to have high false positive/negative detection rates. Wired network scanning tools that scan for wireless devices often miss cleverly hidden and disguised rogue wireless devices or devices that are connected to isolated network segments. Wired scanning also fails to detect many instances of rogue wireless clients. A rogue wireless client is any device that has a wireless interface that is not intended to be present in the environment."
