Eaton & Associates Launches Drone Security Solution

Burlingame, CA — In one of the first of its kind, Eaton & Associates is launching a full-service drone security solution for organizations seeking enterprise level protection from drone attacks and security breaches.

Drones have become a significant threat to organizations and, while widely used for innovation, drones also are being used to hack wireless networks, compromise data-center ventilation systems, and lift intellectual property from high-profile companies. Eaton & Associates is committed to protecting clients and the community from IT-based security threats and is pleased to announce new strategic alliances with Dedrone and Aptonomy, forming the new Drone-IT Solution — “Where Cyber & Physical Security Converge.”

The Drone-IT Solution

This strategic alliance with Dedrone and Aptonomy, allows Eaton & Associates to leverage extensive enterprise IT experience to enhance clients’ existing IT infrastructure by implementing the Drone-IT Solution protecting physical buildings and critical intellectual property.

The Drone-IT Program follows three core principles for protection: Detect, Defend and Deploy.

Detection: Leveraging the Dedrone airspace security platform, the Drone-IT solution detects all drone activity within clients’ airspace, including a drone pilot’s location.

Defense: Take action through integrating Aptonomy’s fully autonomous drone security guards, protecting client’s property and buildings from drones, people, or anything not authorized to be onsite.

Deployment: Implementing a complete drone security solution should complement and enhance a company’s current IT infrastructure, Eaton & Associates customizes the Dedrone and Aptonomy airspace security technology to work seamlessly with existing systems, including integration into Intrusion Detection Systems (IDS) and other IT security devices.

Presentation to California Cities

Taking the lead in drone security advocacy, Eaton & Associates and Dedrone have been selected to present at the upcoming Municipal Information Systems Association of California (MISAC), where IT professionals representing city governments in California will meet in Monterey, CA.
“Drones have completely changed the game, and organizations are being forced to modify their security strategies,” said John Eaton, President of Eaton & Associates.

“Rapid advances in technology and lower price points have led to endless possibilities allowing drones to be used for innovation or more destructive means with relatively little skill, effort and cost,” Eaton said. “But fortunately, there are real and proven solutions to mitigate the risks, and we’re very excited to be at the forefront.”

“The Drone-IT Solution is the ideal convergence of drone detection and autonomous security patrol,” shares Joerg Lamprecht, CEO and co-founder of Dedrone. “Eaton & Associates is an excellent strategic partner given their commitment to providing their clients the best-in-class and the most innovative IT and security solutions. We share Eaton’s pledge to provide all enterprises and individuals complete airspace security.”

Taking Steps Toward Airspace Security

Eaton & Associates is excited to launch the new Drone-IT drone security solution and announce new strategic alliances with Dedrone and Aptonomy as well as integration into existing IT platforms from HPE-Aruba, Cisco and Palo Alto Networks. This consortium forms the first enterprise level airspace protection solution designed for public venues, events, corporate campuses, data centers or any organization susceptible to drone incursions.
