Bluesocket punts wireless security kit
Bluesocket, the IT security vendor, is to sell wireless monitoring technology alongside its current line of wireless gateway products. The BlueSecure intrusion detection system includes a server and dedicated sensors, which can monitor traffic on 802.11a, b and g networks.
According to Carlos Gomez Gallego, product manager at Bluesocket, the technology gives users visibility over what is happening over the airwaves. This is not possible with conventional (wired) intrusion prevention technology, he said.
Bluesecure detects various types of wireless intrusions, including war-driving attacks, denial of service attacks (DoS), impersonation attacks, and the use of automated attack tools.
