Detecting Cell Phones in Restricted Areas

Despite considerable physical security cell phones sometimes still enter restricted areas to provide tools for illicit communication, recording and data transmission. 

Watch the video below to learn more about how Bastille detects and locates cell phones entering restricted areas.

Bob Baxley, Chief Engineer at Bastille Networks demonstrates how Bastille detects cell phones entering restricted areas using only their cellular signal.

Bastille identifies phones by detecting the actual cellular signals being emitted from the phone, not by using Wi-Fi or Bluetooth signals.  While other technologies can detect Wi-Fi from smart phones, and therefore claim to detect cell phones, you cannot rely upon a bad actor having left their Wi-Fi signal turned on in order to detect the cell phone.
