LONDON -- Red-M, a leading developer of hardware and software tools for secure wireless control, today unveiled Red-Detect at VARVision in Hollywood. Red-Detect represents a new dimension in wireless security technology by being the first server-based intrusion detection system (IDS) capable of detecting vulnerabilities in both the 802.11 and Bluetooth bands.

Red-Detect not only scans enterprise airspace but also correlates intrusion events across multiple sections of a building. It then aggregates and actively reports unauthorised and unusual wireless transmissions, highlighting threats on the 802.11 and Bluetooth bands. Unusually, Red-Detect also identifies "friendly" peer-to-peer networks, which are created when two laptops talk directly to each other. Red-M says that most network users and even other IDS developers are unaware of the threat posed by such ad hoc networks.

Red-Detect answers the need for a comprehensive view of wireless activity within and surrounding the enterprise. The message from Red-M is clear: no organisation can safely assume that merely setting a "no wireless" policy will protect it from wireless security threats.

"Today, no network can exist in a safe vacuum, free from wireless security risks. All it takes is one wireless device-either within the organisation or on a neighbouring network-to expose corporate data, totally nullifying the investment that has been made in firewall technology," explained Karl Feilder, CEO of Red- M.

Red-Detect provides:

  • Round-the-clock monitoring. Captures events as they occur, 24/7.
  • Centralised event consolidation. Identifies unique attack profiles from multiple probes.
  • Secure policy conformance. Monitors policy breaches and immediately sends alerts.
  • Scaleable system. Scales to support thousands of probes in order to protect large enterprises.
  • Performance monitoring. Detects issues such as airspace overcrowding.
  • Capacity planning. Monitors access points; reports effectiveness of locations.
  • Audit tool. Provides network manager with history of all wireless events.
  • Familiar dashboard display. Presents information in accessible charts and graphs, making it easy to spot trends.
  • Customisable display. Tailors views for network managers based on needs.

Understanding the full experience of women in technology requires starting at the collegiate level (or sooner) and studying the technologies women are involved with, company cultures they're part of and personal experiences of individuals.

During this WiC radio show, we will talk with Nicole Engelbert, the director of Research & Analysis for Ovum Technology and a 23-year telecom industry veteran, about her experiences and perspectives on women in tech. Engelbert covers infrastructure, applications and industries for Ovum, but she is also involved in the research firm's higher education team and has helped colleges and universities globally leverage technology as a strategy for improving recruitment, retention and graduation performance.

She will share her unique insight into the collegiate level, where women pursuing engineering and STEM-related degrees is dwindling. Engelbert will also reveal new, original Ovum research on the topics of artificial intelligence, the Internet of Things, security and augmented reality, as well as discuss what each of those technologies might mean for women in our field. As always, we'll also leave plenty of time to answer all your questions live on the air and chat board.
