Secure Decisions Wins Homeland Security Contract to Reduce Wireless Risks to Critical Infrastructures
Division of Applied Visions selected by LIFT to help physical security forces identify suspicious wireless intrusion under the U.S. Department of Homeland Security program. NORTHPORT, NY, December 15, 2010 – Secure Decisions, working with the Long Island Forum for Technology (LIFT), has been awarded a contract funded by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS). Under the project called “WildCAT,” Secure Decisions will conduct research on detecting rogue wireless access points near high-value targets. The work includes instrumenting security patrol cars with wireless intrusion detection tools to detect unauthorized wireless devices near critical infrastructure. Secure Decisions will adapt its wireless security visualization product, MeerCAT®, to help security teams analyze the data collected by the patrol cars and report detected threats. As cited in the U.S. GAO report on Critical Infrastructure Protection, “Cyber risks to [our [...]
NORTHPORT, NY, May 24th, 2011 – The Secure Decisions Division of Applied Visions has been awarded the Long Island Software Award. MeerCAT® was selected as one of “Long Island’s Top Software Products” and received an award at the Long Island Software and Technology Network (LISTnet) event held on May 11th, 2011. The Long Island Software Award mission is to “showcase the strength and diversity of Long Island's software industry by recognizing excellence in a wide range of software products. Secure Decisions has previously won this award for their VIAssist™ and SecureScope™ products. MeerCAT® was initially developed as part of a DARPA-funded research effort into developing tools for visualizing mobile networks. It was based on the needs of DoD security professionals, such as information security auditors, penetration vulnerability testers, and computer network defenders, who conduct ‘wardrives’ [...]
NORTHPORT, NY, April 20, 2011 – Secure Decisions, a division of Applied Visions, Inc. (AVI) and developer of visual cyber defense and decision support tools, today announced that its MeerCAT®-FS product has been granted the Authority to Operate (ATO) on U.S Department of Defense information systems. MeerCAT®-FS obtained the ATO under the Department of Defense Information Assurance Accreditation and Certification Process (DIACAP). The DIACAP certification was received under the Defense Information Systems Agency’s (DISA) sponsorship as part of the Naval Research Laboratory’s (NRL) Flying Squirrel Wireless Assessment Tool Suite. MeerCAT®-FS is the government off-the-shelf version of Secure Decisions’ wireless security visualization tool that is now available from NRL for authorized government users. The product was developed in collaboration with NRL to improve the analysis of data collected with NRL’s Flying Squirrel wireless discovery application. Military [...]
DARPA singles out wireless security technology developed by Applied Visions, Inc. division as one of its success stories for 2010 The MeerCAT wireless analysis tool depicts network usage patterns and potential vulnerabilities. NORTHPORT, NY, March 15, 2010 – For the second time in its history, the Secure Decisions Division of Applied Visions has been honored by DARPA for its small business success gallery. The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA), research and development arm of the U.S. Department of Defense (DoD), selected MeerCAT®, along with a few other select DARPA-sponsored projects, to receive this recognition.
