Wireless LANs (WLANs) are quickly becoming the connectivity platform of choice across all types of organizations because of their flexibility, convenience and ability to improve productivity. As WLANs evolve from best-effort to mission-critical infrastructure, organizations find that the operational aspects of network security take on much greater importance. They discover that technical requirements are only one part of the equation. Regulatory requirements relating to wireless networks consume a significant amount of time and resources. As a result, many organizations are rethinking their approach to security in their network operations. Effectively managing wireless security presents many challenges.
