Discover Potential Security Risks in Nearby Bluetooth Devices
AirMagnet, Inc. introduced its BlueSweep software, designed to identify nearby devices with Bluetooth wireless technology and alert users to potential Bluetooth security risks. The AirMagnet software identifies and tracks devices up to 300 feet away and lets users know what their own Bluetooth devices are doing.
BlueSweep gives users a complete picture of nearby Bluetooth activity, including interconnections between Bluetooth devices and all services on those devices. The AirMagnet software also identifies the make and manufacturer of Bluetooth devices within range. This lets users perform real-time audits of Bluetooth activity and potential vulnerabilities. The software also stores activity history for offline analysis.
BlueSweep runs on laptop computers that support Windows XP, and is available as a free download.
