What were once revolutionary words when talking about enterprise WLAN – monitoring, visibility, single-pane-of-glass management – now sound conventional to the ears of network managers. Today, for many, the features those words describe have evolved into what is now known as the “cloud console.”

As WiFi networks have moved from merely supporting the business to serving as its backbone, WLAN management must evolve as well. Yesterday's security, scalability, and remediation are inadequate for the digitally transformed enterprise in which WiFi is the conduit to customers, suppliers, and mission-critical business applications.

In many Asian countries, the New Year is based on the lunar calendar and is dictated by the first new moon and ends on the full moon. In the case of the Chinese calendar, each New Year is marked by the characteristics of one of the 12 zodiacal animals: the rat, ox, tiger, rabbit, dragon, snake, horse, sheep, monkey, rooster, dog and pig.

The Hunt for Rogue October
Posted by Rick Farina on Oct 30, 2014

Recently, I was invited to speak on Wi-Fi security at Wireless LAN Professionals Conference Europe in Maastricht, Netherlands. Excited about my first trip to the Netherlands, I quickly said yes and off I went. After meeting up with my co-worker, we arrived the evening before the conference to relax and check in.

Google Pushing HTTPS Further

Implications for Public Facing Wi-Fi Security, Advertising and Analytics

You may have already noticed - Google search has been strictly using HTTPS for some time now. Typically, people do not enter passwords in keyword search and so people probably were not terribly worried about search sites not using HTTPS (Bing still allows HTTP). Nonetheless, Google seems to have taken position in favor of HTTPS. YouTube also allows HTTPS (though HTTP option is also available today). When YouTube page is accessed over HTTPS, videos also stream over HTTPS (a way to check this is funny name option called "Stats for nerds" which shows on right click on YouTube video). One could also say Google is making a point here that HTTPS isn’t necessarily the scalability bottleneck today.
