Highwall Technologies, a leading provider of wireless security and management products, today announced the release of their next generation wireless sensor and antenna products. The newly released products include the Highwall Sentinel 1100 and Highwall Scout 2100 and 3100. The Highwall Sentinel is the industry's only High-Range Wireless Sensor and the Highwall Scout is the industry's only Phased-Array antenna built specifically for over-the-air rogue detection, location analysis and wireless intrusion detection.

The new products maintain the industry leading range and coverage of previous versions, but now include the ability to quarantine / shutdown unauthorized (or rogue) access point and clients, monitor Bluetooth devices, and offer advanced intrusion prevention features such as a wireless honey pot for luring malicious hackers that are war driving for an open access point.

"The new product line upholds our promise to our customers to offer the best-in-class Wireless Intrusion Detection and Prevention solution in the market today", said Rich Swier, CEO of Highwall Technologies. "As the air space becomes the preferred battle ground for hackers, Highwall products give our customers the upper-hand, and will enable them to protect their networks from all potential intrusions. These products are not merely a gradual progression, but a leap of advancement in the fight for wireless security."

Like the previous versions of Highwall products, the latest Highwall Sentinel and Highwall Scout antennas monitor the airwaves to:

  • Identify different types of wireless devices, including laptops, PDAs, access points
  • Provide key attributes, including device class, manufacturer and signal strength
  • Illustrate communication or connectivity among various devices and ad hoc networks
  • Provide the highest, most scalable level of wireless security on the market

The Highwall Sentinel 1100 and Highwall Scout 2100/3100 are part of the Highwall Enterprise solution, which provides the industry's smartest and most comprehensive wireless intrusion detection and prevention system based on patent-pending technology. Highwall Enterprise leverages the high-range sensor and phased-array antenna to monitor the airwaves and communicate back to a central management server. The server consolidates and analyzes the information to provide enterprise-wide views of all wireless devices and activity.

Highwall Technologies' solutions integrate with CA Wireless Site Management from Computer Associates International, Inc. (CA) to provide a single point-of-control for wireless security and performance optimization across the enterprise.

"Customers deploying Wi-Fi want to ensure the integrity of their environments without devoting inordinate staff resources to monitoring and control tasks," said Sumit Deshpande, Vice President of Wireless Solutions at CA. "By combining Highwall Technologies' sensor solutions with CA's Wireless Site Management, they can fulfill the twin goals of security and operational efficiency."

The new products will be announced at NetWorld(SM)+Interop(R) Las Vegas 2005 at the Mandalay Bay Convention Center, May 1-6, 2005.
