Software from a Silicon Valley firm is being billed as the first wireless security solution able to function at the radio-frequency level.
Meru Networks says its Security Services Module will be a boon to government agencies and private companies with sensitive security needs that currently shy away from wireless Local Area Networks and Voice over Internet Protocol services.
