The Aruba RFProtect module is a software module installed on Aruba Mobility Controllers. RFProtect safeguards the network infrastructure against wireless security threats as well as provides a critical layer of visibility into sources of radio frequency (RF) interference and their effect on wireless LAN (WLAN) performance. RFProtect provides integrated wireless security and spectrum analysis system for enterprise WLANs. Aruba's WLAN infrastructure allows access points (APs) to service WLAN clients while monitoring the air for interference sources and rogue devices. Aruba APs may also be turned into dedicated air monitors to focus on detecting and containing unauthorized APs and devices. Dedicated air monitors are used for containment only and do not broadcast SSIDs or other information over the air. With RFProtect, no specialized hardware or client software is required for RF spectrum analysis, eliminating the need for a separate network of RF sensors and security appliances.
