Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

I have a lot of clients who have wireless networks. They’re typically outside the firewall for open guest access. Some people use WPA and WPA2 for encryption and authentication. I haven’t seen much in the way of policies and very minimal controls to detect rogue systems.

We have also kept wireless out of firewall and with a minimal settings the visitors in our building are able to use it

    Yeah we do manage wireless users, though we have more than 3000 wireless users we have a very strict policy. First and foremost the user must be a domain user, he must be a member of wireless users, he should get a certificate from our certificate servers for his systems as well as his account, then only he is in a position to access the wireless network. As far as guests are concerned we have a guest ssid with just access to internet nothing more and its in totally different network. I think managing wireless users is quite important.
