Bastille promises to find malicious wireless devices in corporate networks

Tim Greene | Aug. 13, 2015
Startup Bastille can flag suspicious radio traffic within enterprises to give security pros a means for keeping an eye on wireless Internet of Things devices that would otherwise elude detection.

A dashboard visualizes the environment based on what the scanners find.

Customers would buy the sensors and pay an annual subscription for the analysis services. Pricing hasn't been set yet.

He says the company is hoping to sell to enterprises concerned about the security of Internet of Things devices that are designed with little security built-in. Such businesses have little in the way of securing their networks against these devices. "There is no IoT-security line item in CISOs' budgets," he says. He acknowledges that it may be necessary to convince security pros that there is an IoT security problem.

The system is in beta this year and general availability is scheduled for the first quarter of 2016, possibly at the RSA security conference.

The company is backed by $9 million from Bessemer Venture Partners.

The company name comes from the famous fortress and prison in Paris taken over during the French Revolution.
