Fixmo, the mobile risk management company, today announced that it will offer its Fixmo SafeZone Secure Browser and Fixmo SafeGuard Software Development Kit (SDK) at no charge to government and defense agencies.
Through a Co-operative Research and Development Agreement (CRADA) with the NSA/CSS, as represented by the Information Assurance Directorate, Fixmo is actively engaged in various projects centered on mitigating mobile risk. Through the NSA Technology Transfer Program (TTP), Fixmo has driven the transition of powerful mobile risk management solutions from government off-the-shelf (GOTS) products to commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) products.
Fixmo offers a variety of mobile security and risk management products to government agencies at no charge including Fixmo Sentinel Desktop for BlackBerry and Android, Fixmo Sentinel Server Compliance Check (SCC) for BlackBerry Enterprise Server and now the Fixmo SafeZone Secure Browser and SafeGuard SDK for iOS and Android.
Fixmo SafeZone is the first secure corporate workspace for iOS and Android that provides encrypted, contained and managed corporate email, browsing, documents and applications with a defense-grade security architecture that provides AES 256-bit encryption of data-at-rest and data-in-transit without relying on a Network Operations Center (NOC). Fixmo SafeGuard is a new app security SDK that is built on the same technology that is used in Fixmo SafeZone.
“Fixmo is proud to expand its offering of no-charge mobile security and risk management products for government agencies as part of our Co-operative Research and Development Agreement with the NSA/CSS,” said Rick Segal, CEO, Fixmo. “The Fixmo SafeZone Secure Browser and SafeGuard SDK provide powerful new tools to enable secure, managed and controlled access to behind-the-firewall applications from the latest iPhones, iPads and Android-based devices, at no additional cost.”
The Fixmo SafeZone Secure Browser is a fully contained and encrypted HTML-5 web browser that provides secure access to behind-the-firewall applications, content and documents on smartphones and tablets. The Secure Browser stays completely contained from the native browser on the device, ensuring a complete separation between personal and corporate data. It offers secure browsing on both iOS and Android devices using defense-grade FIPS 140-2 validated AES 256-bit encryption for all data stored within the browser and its local cache.
The Fixmo SafeGuard SDK enables government agencies to add defense-grade security, policy management and IT controls to their custom applications for iOS and Android. With Fixmo SafeGuard, developers can easily enhance their mobile applications with the same FIPS 140-2 validated AES 256-bit encryption, advanced access controls and IT policies that are inherent in the Fixmo SafeZone secure workspace solution. Once an application is updated and re-packaged using the Fixmo SafeGuard SDK, organizations can deploy it into the Fixmo SafeZone secure workspace and manage application policies using the Fixmo SafeZone or Fixmo Sentinel management console.
