A Wireless Intrusion Prevention System (WIPS) is the prevalent approach for mitigating wireless security threats. However, businesses cannot always justify the cost of buying a full-fledged WIPS solution. Some consider the limited WIPS functionality in-built in certain WLAN infrastructure as sufficient. For others that do not own a WLAN, a common misconception is simply having a "No WiFi" policy makes their corporate network immune to wireless threats. A fundamental problem underlying this confusion is that businesses are unable to assess their security posture and fail to comprehend the severity of associated risks.
