  • Private Pre-Shared Key: Simplified Authentication
    Technology Behind the Solution

    Organizations that are planning wireless LAN’s to support corporate devices, BYOD, guest access, may be struggling to find the balance between flexibility and security. Though using IEEE 802.1X is the most secure approach to Wi-Fi authentication, this method is typically only implemented for devices managed by IT. For BYOD, contractors, or guests, the IT staff may not have the access, time, or knowledge to provision certain devices. Alternatively, Pre-Shared Key’s offer organizations simplicity, however, with every device sharing the same key across an SSID, the ability to control and monitor individual devices is lost. Additionally, if the key is compromised, it must be changed on every single device that uses it which is not scalable.
