20 Feb Bastille Announces Bastille Express Portable Rapid Deployment Radio Frequency Threat Remediation Kit
Bastille announces commercial version of its popular DoD only Fly-Away Kit to allow corporations to rapidly locate cell phones, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and BLE devices at multiple and/or temporary locations such as meetings, events, and remote offices
SAN FRANCISCO–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Bastille, the leader in enterprise threat detection through software-defined radio, today announced its new Bastille Express portable rapid deployment kit delivering real-time, accurate Cellular, Bluetooth, BLE and Wi-Fi Device Detection, Identification and location for multiple, temporary and/or remote locations.
“Since we launched Bastille Enterprise for permanent installation to protect a corporation’s most valuable assets, we have been asked if we could deliver their Security Teams a portable version,” said Chris Risley, CEO at Bastille. “Security professionals wanted a portable version to scan and protect temporary meeting locations, such as executive retreats or to use when they visited remote offices. We first delivered the Bastille FlyAway Kit for our DoD customers and now following our recent FCC approvals, we are delivering the commercial version, Bastille Express for our enterprise customers.”
Set up in minutes, Bastille Express can detect and locate authorized and unauthorized Cellular, Bluetooth, BLE and Wi-Fi devices operating within an area of 3,000 to 5,000 square feet such as a conference meeting room, remote office, hotel room or speaking location.
“In the last month, the announcement of the SweynTooth Bluetooth Low Energy device vulnerability, and the Philips Hue vulnerability Zigbee Worm highlighted the need for corporate security teams to have a solution to discover all the vulnerable wireless devices in their HQ and remote facilities,” said Bob Baxley, CTO at Bastille. “Bastille Express is a great solution to scan an organization’s facilities to discover rogue devices and RF threats.”
In addition to discovering the latest RF vulnerabilities throughout corporate facilities, Bastille Express can be used to:
ENFORCE NO CELL PHONE OR DEVICE POLICY: Enforce no cell phone policy for a temporary or remote facility
SECURE MEETINGS AREAS: Detect transmitting electronic devices in a secure meeting area
PREVENT VOICE AND DATA EXFILTRATION: Detect wireless devices and Red Alert Upon events such as Bluetooth Pairing
SCAN BUILDINGS & REMOTE OFFICES: Scan a room or building to understand the presence and location of all emitters/transmitters and building systems
TSCM: Scan and monitor an area for unapproved electronic devices
EXTEND BASTILLE ENTERPRISE TO REMOTE OFFICES: Deliver Bastille’s capabilities to a remote office or temporary location
Typical Workflow with Bastille Express
Security teams charged with scanning and then protecting a temporary location, for example surrounding an executive meeting, typically use the following workflow
BASELINE: Scan an area to create a base-line, identify devices and networks
AUTHORIZE/REMOVE: Authorize, remove or disable devices/systems
MONITOR: Monitor for and alert when new devices/networks arrive
EXIT SCAN: Compare end deployment scan to initial baseline scan to see if any RF threats have been left behind
