Smartphone security provider Mobile Application Development (MAD) Partners, has signed an agreement with SRA International, a provider of technology and strategic consulting services and solutions to government organisations and commercial clients.
Under the agreement, SRA will offer Federal customers an array of services to protect and secure iPhones/iPads.
MAD’s Mobile Enterprise Compliance and Security Server (MECS) locks down iPhones, iPads, and multiple platforms of smartphone and tablet devices, enabling security personnel to manage and secure their mobile population.
Through this partnership, SRA will host its own MECS servers to provide iPhone, iPad and Android operating system security for Federal customers.
In addition, SRA also will offer a range of mobile security services, including hosting, migration, integration and training.
The company said that its hosted MECS servers extend existing enterprise and network security policies across mobile platforms with complete enforced encryption, certificates of authority, granular policy driven firewall controls, a suite of content filtering and device management tools, anti-virus and malware eradication.
The security profile of every secured device is automatically updated more than 100 times every day, keeping mobile networks secure, compliant and protected from breach and data leaks.
SRA senior vice president of offerings & products Pat Burke said iPhone and iPad-like mobile devices are offering tremendous operational utility to their clients across both commercial and government organisations.
"As a result, chief information officers (CIOs) and chief information security officers (CISOs) are facing a growing demand from their senior executives to safely integrate these mobile devices into their enterprise IT infrastructures without compromising their enterprise security," Burke said.
"SRA’s partnership with MAD allows us to address this strategic priority while ensuring we continue to enhance our clients’ security, privacy and compliance posture."
