Get insight on rogue APs

Rogue devices can be any of the following:

  • Unauthorized APs that are introduced by employees within the organization but with no detrimental intent
  • Insecure APs that bypass network security owing to airspace proximity
  • Malicious APs that are actual rogue APs and pose a security threat

SolarWinds® Network Performance Monitor is a rogue access point detection tool that comes with an integrated poller to help identify rogue APs in a multi-vendor network environment by scanning wireless controllers and devices. You can also retrieve performance metrics for autonomous access points, wireless controllers, and clients.

Take action and protect your network

Detect hostnames, IP addresses, and MAC addresses with SolarWinds NPM by building wireless heat maps to show their coverage, and then build a report to show APs present that aren't yours. Filter and identify neighborhood homes or neighboring businesses with APs whose WLAN overlap with yours to spot potential weaknesses caused by proximity. Heat maps will display the potentially rogue devices, allowing you to identify whether or not the user is an actual threat. NPM comes loaded with out-of-the-box templates for rogue access point detection to help you find devices and users that could threaten your network.

Drill deeper into rogue APs

Drill deeper into rogue APs

Apart from using NPM, you can use SolarWinds User Device Tracker (UDT) to drill deep into the rogue access point you want to inspect. Get in-depth details of all the endpoints connected to it, such as when the rogue AP was connected, how long it was active for, and which specific user was using it. UDT also allows you to create device whitelists. Devices included in a whitelist will be able to connect to the network, whereas devices not whitelisted will not be permitted. UDT integrates seamlessly into the SolarWinds Orion® Platform of products, delivering a comprehensive monitoring solution for your network and its applications.
