USAID implements wireless intrusion-prevention system

The U.S. Agency for International Development has installed wireless intrusion-prevention technology to enforce its wireless policy in the United States and in other countries where the agency has a presence.

The system, a product called SpectraGuard Enterprise from AirTight Networks, scans for possible intrusions, filters out false alarms and helps agency officials pinpoint the locations of unauthorized access points, according to an AirTight announcement.

USAID is the only federal government agency to receive two consecutive A-plus ratings for security under the Federal Information Security Management Act guidelines. The agency spent two months evaluating wireless intrusion-prevention products before choosing SpectraGuard, according to the company.
