ATLANTA – AirDefense’s wireless network detection and prevention solution will be installed at 20 U.S. Army bases as part of a new contract between the Army and Telos Corporation.

Telos, which is based in Virginia, provides security solutions to the federal government.

Under the Army contract, Telso will install more than 1,500 AirDefense sensors and also provide training and support. A previous contract covered 16 other sites.

The AirDefense system was chosen as part of the Department of Defense policy launched in June of last year that called for continuous wireless intrusion and detection protection for military networks.
