ST. LOUIS, June 24 /PRNewswire/ -- Mobile Armor, Inc., the technology leader in mobile data protection for the U.S. Government contracting with MTM Technologies, Inc., today announced that the company's data security software has been selected by the U.S. Department of Navy to protect its data at rest. Under this enterprise-wide contract, Mobile Armor will provide its centralized policy management and data protection solutions. The agreement also includes maintenance, training and other support programs.
Beginning with this award and selection by the U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) Data-at-Rest Tiger Team (DARTT) - Mobile Armor has met or exceeded the rigorous requirements of those set by the U.S. Government for data protection. Using this exacting standard, the U.S. Navy conducted a thorough review of the approved vendor products. Their conclusion clearly identified Mobile Armor to be the number one choice for data-at-rest protection for all U.S. Navy personally-identifiable information (PII) and other types of sensitive DAR on mobile computing devices and portable storage media.
"Mobile Armor recognizes the significance of achieving this award and we take great pride in being selected to protect our nation's most sensitive data while our Navy's war fighters protect our nation," said Chand Vyas, chairman and CEO of Mobile Armor. "Today's announcement once again reinforces the fact that we are an emerging leader in data security technology," continued Vyas.
"The potential value Mobile Armor can expect over time across all product lines could exceed $40+ million dollars," said Steve Stringer, president and CEO of MTM Technologies. "That demonstrates the scope of securing cyberspace as it continues to expand at exponential growth while facing the challenges and threats within. MTM Technologies offers a complete solution of technologies that meet that growing challenge, including Mobile Armor's data-at-rest suite--all the tools we believe necessary to meet evolving data security requirements in commercial, education, government or military sectors."
Purchase of Mobile Armor's DoN-wide BPA N00104-09-A-ZF30 approved data security solutions can be made through the authorized reseller MTM Technologies under the United States General Services Administration (GSA) Schedule contract, number GS-35F-0225T.
