AirPatrol Launches Rapid Deployment Security System

Wireless intrusion detection system is designed for temporary wireless security deployments, wireless vulnerability assessments, and white hat pen tests
Columbia, MD-November 4, 2009-AirPatrol Corporation, a leading mobile and wireless threat management solutions company, today launched its Rapid Deployment Sensor (RDS), the wireless security industry's first and only wireless intrusion detection system designed for temporary wireless security deployments, wireless vulnerability assessments, and white hat penetration tests. The RDS provides security personnel in global 1000 companies, government agencies, law enforcement and correctional industries with a rapid and cost-effective way to evaluate strengths and weaknesses in their wireless environments.

The RDS is used with AirPatrol's Wireless Locator System (WLS), the only wireless intrusion detection and location system for managing both 802.11 WLAN Device and Cellular Device security. The RDS is a standard WLS Sensor, a wireless mesh backhaul and a rechargeable battery packaged in a compact, rugged, weatherproof case. The RDS's built-in wireless mesh node eliminates the need for network cabling between sensors. Network connectivity between the WLS Sensors and the laptop hosting the WLS Management application is achieved through the 802.11-based wireless mesh. RDS's easy set-up, rugged case, and battery-powered operation make it an ideal solution to rapid deployment security requirements.

"Wireless security testing and monitoring is essential to maintaining the security and integrity of information systems within the global 1000 and worldwide government installations," said Ozzie Diaz, CEO, AirPatrol Corporation. "For example, the RDS will help our customers in government, law enforcement and corrections protect their investment in wireless, adhere to security mandates, prevent unauthorized network access and have peace of mind that their confidential information is safe."

Unlike a standard WLS Sensor, the RDS is free of cables and can be moved rapidly from one location to another. The RDS comes with a standard WLS Wi-Fi/cellular sensor and additional features, such as:

* Detection capabilities for 802.11 a/b/g/n devices * Accurate detection of cell phones in the 824-849 MHz and the 1850-1910 MHz bands and iDEN cellular devices in the 806-824 MHz band * A high-impact, weather-proof portable case * Network pass-through data port

"The security of a corporation's wireless network should be a priority yet large percentages of monies are still spent on physical security while many holes and weaknesses in wireless networks go unchecked," said Kevin Murray, President, Murray Associates. "AirPatrol's Rapid Deployment Sensor is just what companies that are resource challenged need to make temporary assessments, complete vulnerability tests and ensure a high level of network security."
