MCLEAN, Va. — Once a “no wireless” world, the U.S. Federal government is introducing wireless technologies — including Bluetooth — within its agencies to increase mobility, lower infrastructure costs and achieve real-time information exchange. But with the increased dependence on wireless comes a heightened need for broad and deep security measures. To meet this demand, Red-M, a leading developer of hardware and software tools for secure wireless control, today announced a partnership with full-service, government reseller, iGov. Established in 1996 to cater exclusively to the U.S. Federal government relies on Red-M for its unique ability to detect, secure and control wireless vulnerabilities on all 802.11 and Bluetooth spectrums.
“Our government customers are asking for wireless security that protects against all kinds of rogue intruders and as yet, unimagined threats — including those that may occur on the Bluetooth spectrum,” says Steve Taylor, enterprise solutions group manager for iGov. “With Red-M’s wide range of products, our customers can detect any kind of rogue activity, be it on Bluetooth or 802.11 bands, and control and manage those wireless vulnerabilities to mitigate the possible risks. Red-M is the only vendor capable of providing this kind of protection against both Bluetooth and 802.11.”
iGov and Red-M will offer the Department of Defense and civilian agencies Red-M’s suite of wireless security products including: Red Alert Pro, a wireless monitoring probe, Red-Detect, a wireless IDS system and Red-Vision, a complete WLAN control solution. Government customers may purchase Red-M’s products as part of a broader network management solution that simplifies the challenges of maintaining and securing both wired and wireless network environments.
“The distributed nature of government makes it both the perfect candidate for wireless technologies and yet the perfect target for rogue intruders interested in stealing highly-sensitive data and information,” said Karl Feilder, president and CEO of Red-M. “With iGov, Red-M is providing government agencies with a comprehensive array of products to protect all areas of wireless — from devices to infrastructure — against both 802.11 and Bluetooth vulnerabilities.”
