MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., Jan. 14, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- AirTight® Networks, a global leader in secure Wi-Fi solutions, today announced that AirTight WIPS, its patented wireless intrusion prevention system, has achieved HP ArcSight Common Event Format (CEF) certification. The certification assures that AirTight wireless security alerts can be easily collected and aggregated for analysis in one single tool for security assessment and monitoring as well as platform integration for risk management. AirTight is the only WIPS vendor with this certification thus providing network administrators with complete visibility into the wireless security posture of their network(s).

They need an easy way to correlate and act on all information about threats to the network," said Jatin Parekh, Vice President of Product Management at AirTight. "By joining best of breed technologies from AirTight and HP, customers benefit from a certified solution to address these security concerns."
