Company’s AirPatrol ZoneDefense system to help secure sensitive government installations against mobile threats and data leakage
PALO ALTO, Calif. – Big data analytics and solutions provider Sysorex (NASDAQ: SYRX) today announced it has secured a $1 million engagement with a US Government agency for the company’s AirPatrol ZoneDefense mobile device detection and locationing system. ZoneDefense will be used to help secure sensitive buildings from cybersecurity and data leakage threats posed by rogue mobile devices such as smartphones, tablets and other items capable of communicating and transferring data outside of secured networks.
“Unknown and rogue mobile devices are a serious threat to information security because they can operate undetected, and bypass normal security protocols using cellular, Bluetooth or ad hoc WiFi networks,” said Nadir Ali, CEO of Sysorex. “After extensive trials this agency selected AirPatrol ZoneDefense to help secure its facilities. I believe this is a testament to ZoneDefense’s ability to detect and accurately locate any wireless device operating within a monitored area.”
ZoneDefense is a mobile device security system that detects and monitors cellular, WiFi and Bluetooth devices and triggers specific security policies based on the identity of the device and its location. ZoneDefense customers include federal government agencies, universities, hospitals, financial firms and global enterprises among others.
Sysorex expects the ZoneDefense installation to begin in mid-November and be completed by year’s end.
