AirDefense BlueWatch now available on PDAs
AirDefense has announced AirDefense BlueWatch, the industry's first commercial-grade Bluetooth monitoring solution available on personal digital assistants (PDAs). AirDefense BlueWatch enables organizations to identify rogue and insecure Bluetooth devices in their wireless environment.

The company says that organisations already employ a "no Bluetooth policy" preventing employees, visitors and vendors from bringing Bluetooth-enabled devices into their organizations. These companies will benefit from using AirDefense BlueWatch to detect Bluetooth as people pass through designated entry points of an organization - a clear reminder of the security policy.

Like the original version of BlueWatch available for Windows XP or Windows 2000 laptops, AirDefense BlueWatch PDA monitors the surrounding to identify different types of Bluetooth devices, including laptops, PDAs, keyboards and cell phones. The results show key attributes, including device class, manufacturer and signal strength, plus identify services available on each device, including network access, fax and audio gateway.

AirDefense BlueWatch is part of the AirDefense family of products, which provides wireless intrusion prevention based on patent-pending technology that identifies wireless activities.

The company did not specify what types of PDA are used to host this tool, and the website is not updated yet with this information.
