Rogue AP detection without an AP

Hey all,

We're setting up an office, and require rogue AP detection for PCI (or wireless scanning of some sort). However, we won't have a wireless network.

Can the Fortigate still do rogue AP detection without a managed AP?

Cheers,

Simon

To detect rogue APs, there needs to be a wireless device that can listen to radios, generally the same device that provides your corporate/guest wifi. So it can differentiate between corp/guest wifi and rogue wifi.
