Thursday, September 27, 2007

AirDefense is the Only Company to Own Comprehensive Intellectual Property for Wireless LAN Intrusion Prevention and Wireless Troubleshooting

Atlanta, GA -- AirDefense, the innovator that launched the wireless LAN security market, today announced that it has received allowances from the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) for the company’s fourth and fifth patents. These patents further strengthen AirDefense’s seminal intellectual property portfolio. With three fundamental patents granted earlier, AirDefense now owns the earliest and broadest patents in the area of wireless intrusion prevention and wireless troubleshooting.

AirDefense’s fourth patent titled "System and Method for Sensing Wireless LAN Activity" (US Patent No. 7,277,404), covers the hybrid architecture of a wireless IPS, and specifically, the shared processing between sensors and a server for scalable, collaborative and distributed monitoring of WLAN traffic.

AirDefense’s fifth patent titled "Systems and Methods for Dynamic Sensor Discovery and Selection" (US Patent Application No. 10/773,915), filed over three years ago, covers management and architectural aspects of a wireless, distributed, multiple-sensor network for dynamic discovery, redundancy and spatial coverage in wireless monitoring.

"The patents granted to AirDefense describe fundamental systems and methods that are required for any wireless security and monitoring solution," said Dr. Amit Sinha, chief technology officer, AirDefense. "As the pioneer in the wireless intrusion prevention industry, AirDefense takes great pride in offering patented solutions that are relied upon by more Fortune 500 companies, healthcare organizations, high-security government agencies and other blue chip corporations than any of our competitors."

AirDefense has an additional 23 patents pending at the USPTO. These patents extend AirDefense’s intellectual property into broader areas such as security for emerging wireless networks, interference classification, remote performance troubleshooting, bandwidth optimization, forensic analysis, endpoint wireless security, legacy encryption protection and alarm management.
