SteelCloud announces support for DoD Android mobile devices
SteelCloud, Inc., a leading developer of mobility appliance and VMware solutions today announced that MobileWorks DoD Edition for Good is immediately available to support Google Android deployments within the US Department of Defense (DoD). This new release of the MobileWorks DE compliance platform for the Good for Government mobile security suite adds secure protection for Android to existing support for Apple iOS mobile devices.
As announced in July, SteelCloud has partnered with Good Technology to deliver new mobile security management solutions to the DoD and Federal Government. MobileWorks DE for Good helps military commands minimize technology learning curves and complex security challenges associated with deployment and management of DoD-approved mobility solutions including Android and iOS.
"The approval to deploy Android again demonstrates the rapid expansion of innovative mobility options that are being made available to the DoD," said Brian Hajost, President, and CEO of SteelCloud. "We are pleased to build on our track record of delivering securely configured and compliant 'out of the box' platforms to now include both iOS and Android. Our timely MobileWorks DE release continues SteelCloud's commitment to help our military take mobility to the next level."
Available as a specialized hardware appliance or as VMware software, MobileWorks DE deploys a hardened Windows environment, Good for Government enterprise-class mobile mail and personal information management system, and support for iOS and Android in under 60 minutes. SteelCloud also offers STIG360, a compliancy support service that ensures deployed systems are kept up to date with appropriate STIGs and security guidance, significantly reducing the burden on budgets and staff. As a result, military commands are able to re-allocate IT resources to other mission-critical tasks rather than committing weeks or months to manual system deployment, hardening, and maintenance.
