[prMac.com] Berkeley, California - June 13, 2007 - Periodik Labs is pleased to announce the release of Elektron 2.0, a major upgrade to its award-winning RADIUS server software for securing Wi-Fi networks. With its emphases on strong security and ease-of-use, Elektron provides enterprise-grade security to Wi-Fi networks of all sizes.
This latest release of Elektron adds significant new features to the popular RADIUS server, including support for Cisco's EAP-FAST protocol, remote monitoring via SNMP, enhanced authorization, and multiple domain authentication.
Also new in Elektron 2 is its cryptographic module, which has been tested and validated under the NIST Cryptographic Module Validation Program as meeting requirements for FIPS PUB 140-2. This enables Elektron's use in government and financial industry applications requiring FIPS 140-2 validation.
Elektron works with Wi-Fi Protected Access-capable access points and clients to enable WPA Enterprise security, providing:
Authentication: Lets network administrators control who is able to access the network on a person-by-person basis.
Authorization: Administrators control which users have access to network resources, and at what times.
Accounting: Shows administrators who is trying to access the network, and when.
Windows XP, Windows Vista, and Mac OS X Wi-Fi users need no additional software to connect to an Wi-Fi network secured by Elektron. This saves organizations the expense of per-client application licensing.
Elektron is available for both Mac OS X and for Windows servers. For Mac OS X hosts, version 10.3.9 or later is required; for Windows hosts, Windows XP, Windows Vista, or Windows Server 2003 is required.
Wi-Fi hardware supported by Elektron includes most access points and client adapters that have been declared Wi-Fi Certified by the Wi-Fi Alliance. This includes popular hardware from manufacturers like Linksys, D-Link, Netgear, HP, and Cisco, as well as Apple products like the AirPort Extreme and AirPort Express base stations.
Elektron is available now for purchase and download from the Periodik Labs website at a price of $750.00 per server. There is no limitation on the number of clients served nor any additional per-client fees. Elektron version 1.x licensees may upgrade at a price of $225.00, while Elektron licensees with a current maintenance contract may upgrade at no charge.
