Qualcomm integrates Wi-Fi security for mobile and networking array
Chipsets for access points and mobile devices support the Wi-Fi alliance’s WPA3
Qualcomm Technologies Inc, a subsidiary of Qualcomm Incorporated has launched the industry's newest Wi-Fi security protections for mobile and networking infrastructure products.
Qualcomm Technologies will support the Wi-Fi alliance's third generation security suite, Wi-Fi protected access (WPA3), the latest and most secure protocol that provides robust protection of user passwords and stronger privacy in both public and private Wi-Fi networks. Qualcomm Technologies said it demonstrating its industry leadership by announcing implementation of these advanced security features, including the recently launched 2x2 802.11ax-ready solution for client devices, the WCN3998, and IPQ807x AP platform.
Rahul Patel, senior vice president and general manager, connectivity, Qualcomm Technologies, Inc, said: "At Qualcomm Technologies, we are committed to working closely with industry bodies like the Wi-Fi alliance to develop security standards to best protect data traffic across networks and devices, especially as security threats and attacks continue to become increasingly sophisticated."
Patel said by adopting the latest in encryption technology to protect Wi-Fi connected products from security attacks, Qualcomm Technologies helps customers build products that not only deliver the industry's latest technologies to the market, but adopt the most advanced security standard available.
The addition of robust WPA3 encryption in Qualcomm Technologies' portfolio of mobile and networking infrastructure products is designed to provide a more seamless on-boarding experience of Wi-Fi devices and more secure wireless access, even when user Wi-Fi passwords fall short of common complexity recommendations.
