COLUMBIA, Md., March 10 (UPI) -- AirPatrol says its Wireless Policy Management solution meets U.S. Defense Department flash drive guidelines through its selective blocking capabilities.

U.S. company AirPatrol said Tuesday its WPM, a technology designed to support the management of security for all wireless-enabled computer endpoints, supports the Strategic Command's recent policy adjustment allowing military personnel limited use of flash-drive technologies following a previous Defense Department ban.

AirPatrol says its WPM enables information technology administrators to choose which flash-drive devices are permitted access to Defense Department networks in a move to support the updated flash-drive policy.

"By supporting the Defense Department's updated flash-drive policy, AirPatrol ensures that our current and future Defense Department customers are able to strictly enforce their security policies relating to government issued flash drives," AirPatrol Chief Executive Officer Ozzie Diaz said in a statement.
