Secure Decisions Integrates Physical and Cyber Security Forces to Detect Wireless Threats to Critical Infrastructure

Secure Decisions, a division of Applied Visions, has developed a wireless security system that supports real-time monitoring, alerting, analysis, and reporting of IEEE 802.11 (“Wi-Fi”) threats and vulnerabilities. The system was developed under sponsorship of Department of Homeland Security Science and Technology (DHS S&T). NORTHPORT, NY, January 11th, 2012 – Secure Decisions recently completed a 14-month effort to develop “WildCAT”, a turnkey system that provides cost-effective, frequent surveillance of an organization’s IEEE 802.11 (“Wi-Fi”) wireless space. WildCAT streamlines the process of detecting, locating, and analyzing wireless threats and vulnerabilities. It has been designed to be used in a standalone configuration, or to augment a wireless intrusion detection/prevention system (WIDS/WIPS). WildCAT offers organizations an inexpensive option to extend their wireless security standoff range or improve their wireless surveillance coverage area. WildCAT leverages a physical security force [...]
