WID Sensors Get DoD Thumbs Up

Flying Fox sensors provide real-time unique approach to wireless intrusion detection systems with “zero false positives” for cellular while meeting Department of Defense standards.

 

Epiq Solutions’ Flying Fox wireless intrusion detection sensors (WIDS) have been approved as Cybersecurity Tools (CST) and are now available on the Department of Defense’s Information Network Approved Products List (DoDIN APL). Epiq Solutions collaborated with the U. S. Naval Research Laboratory (NRL) to complete the Cybersecurity (CS) testing process needed to make the list.

Approval as a cybersecurity tool and listing on the APL puts Flying Fox’s long-awaited “zero false positive” technology for cellular intrusion detection into the defense and intelligence marketplace. “Energy-only” detection sensors for cellular are prone to registering false positives, and result in wasted time and cost. Flying Fox eliminates false positives using patent-pending RF signal processing techniques, providing government and military personnel with quick, accurate, mission-critical signal identification they can rely on. Interfaced with NRL’s GOTS networked wireless discovery software Orb-weaver, the sensors can be networked to provide monitoring for cellular, as well as Wi-Fi® and Bluetooth, in secure areas with a “no wireless” policy such as embassies and other government buildings, SCIFs, prisons, meeting rooms, courtrooms, and even perimeter fences.

 

Flying Fox sensors are in production and orders have already shipped to government customers. Ready to fly with the Fox? Get more info now.
