Wireless Intrusion Prevention System (WIPS)

A wireless intrusion prevention system (WIPS) operates at the Layer 2 (data link layer) level of the Open Systems Interconnection model. WIPS can detect the presence of rogue or misconfigured devices and can prevent them from operating on wireless enterprise networks by scanning the network’s RFs for denial of service and other forms of attack.
