AirPatrol Corporation has announced its new Rapid Deployment Sensor (RDS), a wireless intrusion detection system designed for temporary wireless security deployments, wireless vulnerability assessments, and white hat penetration tests. According to the company’s press release, the RDS is used with AirPatrol’s Wireless Locator System (WLS), for managing both 802.11 WLAN Device and Cellular Device security.
“The RDS is used with AirPatrol’s Wireless Locator System (WLS), the only wireless intrusion detection and location system for managing both 802.11 WLAN Device and Cellular Device security. The RDS is a standard WLS Sensor, a wireless mesh backhaul and a rechargeable battery packaged in a compact, rugged, weatherproof case. The RDS’s built-in wireless mesh node eliminates the need for network cabling between sensors. Network connectivity between the WLS Sensors and the laptop hosting the WLS Management application is achieved through the 802.11-based wireless mesh. RDS’s easy set-up, rugged case, and battery-powered operation make it an ideal solution to rapid deployment security requirements.”
