SecureMobile™ Raises the Standard for Security in Mobile Devices
Chandler, AZ (July 3, 2012) – Cummings Engineering today announced the release of its flagship product SecureMobile™ 1.0, powered by SAIFE,™ setting a new market standard around mobile security.
This achievement positions Cummings Engineering as the market leader for secure voice and data products and underscores Cummings Engineering’s key role in leading the Bring Your Own Device, or BYOD, initiatives to government and military markets where protecting privileged communications is critical. The company has been conducting pilots with the US Military for the past year as part of a Government-Only Early Adopter Program.
“We deliberately designed our pilots to gain first-hand working knowledge of what our government customers’ real needs are by working closely with them as they tested SecureMobile for both vulnerabilities and utility,” said Darren Cummings, President Cummings Engineering. “We were committed to releasing a product only when we felt the appropriate security was achieved – the stakes are too high for our customers. We are confident this product represents the highest level of secure communications on a commercial off the shelf (COTS) device today.”
Cummings’ products employ a patent-pending cryptographic foundation for all of its products which has been validated by the US Government’s National Institute of Standards & Technology’s Federal Information Processing Standards Publications (FIPS 140-2).
While this security solution is already in use at the Federal level, this product launch will officially bring the highest level of mobile security to new federal government organizations, as well as state and local law enforcement agencies.
Cummings Engineering built its products and innovations around patent-pending Cummings’ technology named the “Secure Agile Interoperable Framework for the Enterprise (SAIFE)”. SAIFE enables users to achieve trusted mobile security and information sharing across any network and any device.
The technology leverages military grade encryption, known as the Suite B algorithms from the National Security Agency (NSA), to apply the highest grade of security available in the commercial market.
“Commercial mobile devices are ubiquitous and important as they help our government IT departments by lowering costs. However, mobile security is difficult and connecting them can create a significant threat to the system and the people they support. SecureMobile is the first of many applications powered by SAIFE to overcome these threats and help enable trusted use of commercial phones, tablets and networked devices”, said Cummings. “July 4th represents independence for our government customers by enabling the ability to leverage commercial devices on trusted networks.”
