Wash. state to use Network Chemistry products

The Washington State Auditor's Office has tapped Network Chemistry for its wireless security technology.

The auditor's office is deploying elements of Network Chemistry's RFprotect line, which detects and identifies the location of rogue wireless devices and access points. The office uses RFprotect Distributed in four government buildings to enforce its no-wireless policy. The office also employs RFprotect Mobile, a laptop-based tool that detects wireless threats in facilities including remote offices.

'They needed one solution to enforce the no-wireless policy for the main campus buildings where the auditors reside,' noted Brian de Haaff, vice president of product management and marketing at Network Chemistry. In addition, the office 'needed a tool for laptops to do various vulnerability assessments on an individual facility-by-facility basis.'

The deployment marks Network Chemistry's first sale in Washington State, but the company has sold its wireless security products to agencies in other states.

Network Chemistry earlier this year entered an alliance with network security vendor SonicWall to broaden its reach into the government market. In that arrangement, Network Chemistry makes its RFprotect line available through SonicWall's channel partners.
