SteelCloud Expands Support to the Department of Defense

SteelCloud, Inc., a developer of mobility computing appliance and VMware solutions, will expand its security support offerings to the Department of Defense (DoD) in order to better help agencies and commands meet their security obligations as mandated by the Defense Information Systems Agency (DISA).

All DoD organizations have a responsibility to conform to certain DISA Security Technical Implementation Guides or "STIGs." SteelWorks® FedMobile™ is an enhanced implementation of both its server appliance and VMware software appliance for the BlackBerry® Enterprise Server. It provides a consistent preconfigured DoD STIG-compliant BlackBerry environment that can be implemented in under an hour, rather than weeks or months.

The company's new STIG360™ offering is an ongoing security support service that helps DoD organizations remain STIG-compliant over the life of their BlackBerry implementations. SteelCloud expands its support responsibilities to include continual testing, training, and implementation consulting to allow its DoD customers to reduce the time, cost, and risk associated with current and new STIG compliance.

Brian Hajost, president and chief executive officer, said: "Now with STIG360, our customers can remain compliant and receive clean audits over the long term, with a minimum of cost, effort and risk. DISA has announced that STIG support for the older BlackBerry 4.x environment will end next June. SteelWorks FedMobile with its VMware virtualization option is perfectly positioned to meet DoD's upgrade needs for thousands of 4.x BlackBerry Enterprise Servers."
