The 3Com® AirProtect Sentry 5850 Wireless Intrusion Prevention System helps protect your network and users from unauthorized wireless access.

Unsecure deployment of Wi-Fi Access Points (APs), or rogue APs, can open up your network to potential hackers, exposing confidential information about your business, customers, products and services. And users connecting to incorrect APs, whether internal rogue ones, or those external to your network, may lead to additional vulnerabilities.

It can also be used to disable all wireless access within your premises, helping to enforce "no wireless" policies.

Confidential information about your business and customers can be exposed through insecure APs— rogue and misconfigured— and when employees connect to incorrect ones, such as those in close proximity to your business but not under your control (for example, the coffee shop next door).

The 3Com AirProtect Sentry 5850 Wireless Intrusion Prevention System controls access to all these devices, helping to protect your information.

Traditional firewalls only monitor wired traffic and have no visibility into the wireless traffic that is flowing in the air.

The AirProtect Sentry 5850 is a wireless sensor device, which continuously scans the airwaves and provides wireless intrusion prevention against any unauthorized Wi-Fi activities.

The 3Com AirProtect Sentry 5850 Wireless Intrusion Prevention System can be set up in less than 15 minutes. A simple web interface guides you through the appropriate steps to quickly enable defense of your wireless network.
