Dubai-based VAD Comguard today introduced a user-configurable HTML5 UI as part of its AirTight Wi-FiTM access solution, which, the company says, gives network administrators a canvas to create "the optimal WLAN management console for their individual business requirements".

Comguard stressed Gartner's recent rating of AirTight as "Strong Positive" in its 2 August, 2012 Marketscope for Wireless LAN Intrusion Prevention Systems. A "Strong Positive" is the highest rating possible in a Gartner Marketscope.

Jayadevan K, senior vice president, Value Business at Comguard said, "We are glad to launch a simplified WLAN management powered by new UI from AirTight, which has received the highest rating of ‘Strong Positive' by Gartner. The new solution will allow enterprises in the region to customise their dashboards, create location-based management and custom reporting with just a few clicks of a mouse from anywhere on the globe. These diagnostic tools allow large organisations to improve IT efficiency and shorten resolution time for WLAN performance issues."

The new user interface also encompasses a palette of widgets that provide a wide variety of statistics to drill down quickly and easily for information on an access point, a client or the entire network.

Comguard argues that "the centralised management and template-based configuration model from AirTight expedites the deployment and ensures consistency across all locations in the enterprise, allowing new locations to be operational in minutes without sending IT resources to remote sites".

"Until now, wireless LAN administration has required highly-skilled IT staff, often needing extensive training and certification by WLAN vendors to use their products. AirTight's HTML5 UI revolutionises that by bringing flexibility and simplicity to wireless LAN administration, so the WLAN works for you instead of you working for it," said Johan van der Welle, managing director at AirTight Networks.

"AirTight Wi-Fi can be managed across any geographically distributed enterprise, such as retail, hospitality, financial services or educational organizations, and is infinitely scalable. The new configurable UI makes management of a large WI-FI network a simple process, even as new installations are added or maintenance personnel change."

"AirTight pioneered wireless intrusion prevention and PCI compliance scanning in the cloud. By providing both APs and full WIPS security concurrently as well as the new UI, once again, AirTight provides customers with the flexibility they want and the security they need." said David King, chairman and CEO of AirTight. "Today's launches are a natural progression of our leadership and innovation in the wireless space."
