WatchGuard Access Point monitoring non-WatchGuard AP network

No Need to Rip and Replace. Just Add WIPS.

Each WatchGuard access point has the flexibility to operate as both an access point and a dedicated WIPS security sensor. This means that when deployed as dedicated WIPS sensors, the devices work with your existing access points (Cisco, Aruba, Ruckus, Ubiquiti, etc) and add enterprise-grade wireless security protection to your network. In this case, instead of delivering secure Wi-Fi traffic to users, we deliver unprecedented WIPS security protection that is 100% dedicated to scanning the air and protecting your business from wireless threats.
