"MAC Randomization has already had a huge impact on Wi-Fi networks all over the world. Many networks still rely on device MAC addresses being consistent and therefore can no longer deliver the experience they once did to their users. As a Wi-Fi authentication platform, Eleven Software cares deeply about the end-user Wi-Fi experience and believes the best way to solve these issues is through industry standards. Eleven is co-leading the WBA Device Identities Workgroup in order to align device vendors, wireless vendors, and network operators on a set of solutions that provide the best possible experience without sacrificing the privacy or security of users,” commented Meub.
Eleven looks forward to moving the industry forward with the WBA and fellow members.
