Xirrus Enhances Security

Thousand Oaks-based Xirrus has upped the security options for the firm's wireless arrays, saying today that it has rolled out a new security product, RF Security Manager, for its Wi-Fi array systems. Xirrus said the new product improves security and minimizes risk in deploying 802.11n networks, through both hardware encryption and a security scanning feature. The firm said the new product delivers high performance encryption and decryption capabilities, and a "24/7 threat scanner" which the firm says continually scans 2.4GhZ and 5Ghz wireless channels and mitigates threats. Xirrus is a developer of high speed, high bandwidth wireless networking products.
