Technological advances has increased the level of accessibility not just between personal interactions, but to information as well. Wireless communication systems like cell phones and Wi-Fi are essential to running operations, but they have an unfortunate drawback of allowing the information to get into the wrong hands through audio espionage.
Sensitive Compartmented Information Facilities (SCIFs) are government-accredited buildings that handle such matters of high security that they require an advanced form of defense against cyber intruders attempting to eavesdrop and record classified information. SCIFs must be outfitted to meet strict criteria of signal defense, or blocking electrical transmissions from phones or wireless internet connections out of the building, where it can be accessed by unauthorized personnel.
A common solution is the usage of signal defense film, which is adhered onto the window glass itself; however, a disadvantage of window films in general is their lack of long-term sustainability once installed. Thermolite offers an alternative to signal defense film: window systems that come equipped with a patented technology that provides signal defense–blocking audio transmissions. Our signal defense window systems contain laminated glass that blocks wireless electromagnetic transmissions by keeping signals inside the building while preventing outside signals from entering through the window glass and gaining access to wireless communications. The placement of our signal defense window systems is on the interior of building, making the installation more secure, as well as less time-consuming and costly.
Thermolite’s signal defense windows meet the standards set for SCIFs – they comply with US DoD policy, infrared and radio frequency emanation Standard, intelligence Community Directive 705.2, Certified TempeST Technical authority (CTTa) specifications.
SCIFs are not the only organizations that can benefit from signal defense. Any organization that handles classified information, such as customer account numbers and personal information, trade secrets, and government data, is vulnerable to audio spying of classified information.
