AirDefense launches Bluetooth monitoring solution
Posted on 11-May-2004 08:06 | Tags Filed under: News



The company released AirDefense BlueWatch, a commercial-grade Bluetooth monitoring solution. The company says AirDefense BlueWatch enables organizations to identify rogue and insecure Bluetooth devices in their air space.

More than 250 million Bluetooth devices are in operation worldwide and are expected to grow to more than one billion in the next two years, according to InStat/MicroDesign Resources. Though Bluetooth devices have security features built in, most devices ship with unsecured default configurations creating gaping security holes.

"Many of our new company-issued devices are Bluetooth enabled," said Michael Ciarochi, senior security engineer for HomeBanc Mortgage Corporation. "Although this is a convenience for many of our associates, there is a risk that sensitive data may be compromised. AirDefense BlueWatch provides a monitoring solution that we can use to identify and track how and with whom these devices communicate."

AirDefense BlueWatch runs on a standard Windows XP or Windows 2000 platform and monitors the airwaves to:

  • Identify different types of Bluetooth devices, including laptops, PDAs, keyboards and cell phones
  • Provide key attributes, including device class, manufacturer and signal strength
  • Illustrate communication or connectivity among various device
  • Identify services available on each device, including network access, fax and audio gateway
