SteelCloud Announces New Mobility Appliance Deployment Solution for DoD Platforms

By Rajani Baburajan, TMCnet Contributor

SteelCloud, a provider of mobility appliance deployment and VMware solutions, launched the latest mobile appliance developed for the U.S. Department of Defense (DoD).

MobileWorks DE, the new mobility appliance deployment solution, is available for the STIG and security configuration guidance compliant platform deployment of the Good For Government mobile security suite, company officials said.

In July, SteelCloud announced the formation of a partnership with Good Technology (News - Alert) to deliver mobility appliance deployment 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 (News - Alert) 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, in a statement.  

"Our timely announcement gives the military a powerful option to quickly embrace Apple (News - Alert) mobility on the DoD network,” Hajost added.  “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."

MobileWorks DE is available as a specialized appliance deployment solution 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 provides STIG360, 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.  

Furthermore, the STIG360 allows military commands to re-allocate IT resources to other mission-critical tasks rather than committing weeks or months to manual system deployment, hardening, and maintenance, company officials said.
