In response to today’s advanced persistent threats, regulators and standards bodies like the PCI Security Standards Council have created wireless data protection requirements. Failure to comply with those standards can result in significant penalties and/or loss of customer trust due to exposure of protected data. For this reason, industry policies such as PCI-DSS mandate the regular scanning for suspicious or unknown APs.


The goal of the FortiGate Rogue AP detection engine is to automate this scanning process and provide the ability for FortiWiFi and FortiAP system administrators to continuously monitor for unknown APs and also to determine if unknown APs are on the network. Once alerted of the presence of the device, the IT staff can physically remove the rogue AP from the network.
