AirPatrol Corporation Welcomes Alliance With Avineon, Inc.

Advanced Situational Awareness During the Physical and Cyber Security Convergence Completes the Security Ecosystem

COLUMBIA, MD--(Marketwire - Oct 3, 2011) - AirPatrol Corp. is pleased to announce an alliance with Avineon, Inc., a leader in IT, geospatial and engineering services for both the government and private industry. AirPatrol's and Avineon's complementary capabilities will greatly enhance both companies' ability to address the convergence of physical and cyber security.

"With the evolution of staged and blended attacks, immediate incident response is paramount. The alliance between Avineon and AirPatrol represents the future of advanced situational awareness," explained Tom Kellermann, CTO of AirPatrol Corporation. "Security convergence is necessitated by the explosion of wireless cyber-attacks on critical infrastructures and their real-world impact."

AirPatrol's focus on advanced situational awareness and the empowerment of mobile devices works hand in hand with Avineon's cyber incident management platform, Avineonics® Cyber Security Readiness, Response, and Recovery (CSR3). CSR3 utilizes a proven business process management platform to automate the complete life cycle of cyber security functions from planning through post-incident evaluation. In forming this alliance, AirPatrol and Avineon recognize the importance of developing security processes that permit the use of mobile devices without compromising enterprise resilience.

"CSR3 enables organizations to measure their capability to respond to cyber threats by simulating real-world attacks," said Karlu Rambhala, President and CEO of Avineon. "Our collaboration with AirPatrol will help organizations integrate mobile devices into their cyber security policies, drills, and exercises without increasing their vulnerability to external attacks."
