ASHBURN, Va., Sept. 1, 2011 /PRNewswire/ ---- SteelCloud, Inc. (OTCQB: SCLD.PK), a leading developer of mobility appliance and VMware® solutions today announced the release of MobileWorks(TM), its newest mobile appliance developed for the U.S. Department of Defense (DoD). In conjunction with the recent approval of the use of Apple® iOS devices within the DoD, SteelCloud is pleased to offer the immediate availability of MobileWorks DE for the STIG and security configuration guidance compliant platform deployment of the Good For Government(TM) mobile security suite.
As announced in July, SteelCloud has partnered with Good Technology to deliver new mobile security management solutions to the DoD and Federal Government. In response to the approval to deploy Apple iOS devices, MobileWorks DE for Good helps military commands minimize new technology learning curves and complex security challenges, such as compliant system deployment, security hardening and Apple iPad® and iPhone® device management.
"The DoD's recent approval to allow the deployment of Apple iOS devices represents a quantum change in how mobility solutions are embraced by our military," said Brian Hajost, President, and CEO of SteelCloud. "Our timely announcement gives the military a powerful option to quickly embrace Apple mobility on the DoD network. With the only securely configured 'out of the box' STIG and security compliant platform for Good and Apple iOS, SteelCloud is ready to help our military take mobility to the next level."
Available as a specialized appliance or as VMware software, MobileWorks DE deploys the Good for Government enterprise-class mobile mail and personal information management system in under 60 minutes. SteelCloud also offers STIG360(TM), a compliancy support service that ensures deployed systems are kept up to date with the appropriate STIG 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.
SteelCloud has created several special implementation bundles that include everything needed for any size command to get their STIG and security configuration guidance compliant Good and Apple iOS infrastructure up and running in under an hour instead of weeks or months. SteelCloud's new MobileWorks platform for Good/iOS joins its existing SteelWorks® STIG-compliant solutions for BlackBerry®. For more information email iOS@SteelCloud.com.
