Rogue access point scan

Scan your network for unauthorized access points and mark them.

Note

Rogue access point scans are available only with Sophos Firewall devices with integrated Wi-Fi.

A rogue access point refers to any access point connected to your network without authorization. Attackers can use rogue access points for traffic sniffing and other purposes such as man-in-the-middle attacks. You can mitigate these threats by scanning the access points on your network and marking unauthorized access points as rogue access points.

  • To schedule scanning, select Schedule system-triggered scan at, specify a schedule, and click Apply.
  • To scan your network for rogue access points, click Scan now.
  • The signal strength of any detected access point is shown as a percentage (%).
  • To authorize an access point, click Authorize access point Button for authorizing access points.
  • To mark an access point as a rogue access point, click Authorize access point Button for authorizing access points.
