Wireless Intrusion Prevention System (WIPS)

Definition - What does Wireless Intrusion Prevention System (WIPS) mean?

A wireless intrusion prevention system (WIPS) prevents unauthorized network access by monitoring a radio spectrum and looking for unusual network activity. A WIPS can help identify rogue access points or help security professionals prepare for possible spoofing attacks, man-in-the-middle attacks or denial-of-service attacks.

Techopedia explains Wireless Intrusion Prevention System (WIPS)

A wireless intrusion prevention system can help prevent vulnerability to the network through the use of an outside wireless router or other piece of equipment. WIPS do this by identifying whether signals are routine parts of the network or legitimate access points, or whether a particular activity is likely to be unauthorized. Security systems then build responses to potential intrusions.
