Elektron is a powerful software solution for enabling the advanced security features of your Wi-Fi network by providing RADIUS authentication services to your wireless access points and other network devices.
For Small Business
With Elektron, small businesses can take advantage of the same strong security previously available only to enterprise organizations. All you need is Elektron and WPA Enterprise-capable Wi-Fi hardware. Elektron works with the client software built into Windows XP, Windows Vista, Windows 7, and Mac OS X, so there is no need to purchase additional software for your user laptops.
For the Enterprise
Elektron also includes the features needed by enterprise network administrators, including LDAP and ODBC authentication, RADIUS accounting, SNMP mointoring, and server replication. If you have an existing RADIUS infrastructure, Elektron can extend it to your wireless LAN. Elektron can also provide RADIUS services to non-wireless devices like firewalls and VPN concentrators.
Providing wireless security is a unique challenge in an academic environment. The strict network access requirements conspire with limited budgets and the deployment of heterogeneous software and device to create a headache for IT professionals in educational institutions. Elektron can ease that headache by proving multiple levels of security, from simple MAC address authentication up to full strength PKI-based user authentication.
