White Plains, NY (PRWEB) March 7, 2011
Several defense related sections of the US Government and Military are now using Wireless AutoSwitch to secure their laptops and networks from intrusion. These organizations included high courts, divisions of the National Guards, divisions of the US Army and defense support organizations.
Parts of the US Army have been using Wireless AutoSwitch since 2008 and recently that usage has increased across more divisions. We have also noticed an increase in usage in other defense agencies and corporations that support defense agencies. In the last month we have sold over 6,000 licenses to Government/Military organizations and have provided quotes for another 10,000 licenses.
Wireless AutoSwitch is software that is used to disable the wireless cards on laptops when they are not needed. When the users plugs their laptops into a docking station or a LAN/Ethernet connection the wireless card gets automatically disabled and is then enabled when they disconnect the LAN connection. Why would you want to auto disable/enable the wireless card? If the wireless card on a laptop is on when you are plugged into your corporate network then the whole network can be hacked through that open wireless connection. Hackers actively search for any entry point to a secure network so it is best to have the wireless card off when on a hard wire connection. It doesn't matter how secure the internal network is when you have a wide open door. Close the door.
Wireless AutoSwitch XPV works on Windows XP, Vista and Windows 7 and adds the capability to auto disable Modems, Bluetooth and 3G/Broadband devices.
Wireless AutoSwitch is in use in large and small corporations around the world and should be used in yours. It is completely silent and runs in the background, securing your network seamlessly. Ask your IT department if you use Wireless AutoSwitch.
