Is Rogue Wireless scanning required for a "wired" network? The organization does not have a wireless environment. I am just curious the reasons behind conducting the scan and what is the risk if the organization has other tools that monitor the network and detects when a new device connects?

  • Do you have vulnerable places that rogue devices can be connected? what are the monitoring tools you use? There are other steps to take. See this question and answers.

1 Answer 1


This is one of those "it depends" questions. It depends on

  1. How much of a risk rogue APs are to the organization.
  2. How well you can detect unknown devices being connected to the network.

Only you can answer this question for your organization.
