Mobile Armor Gets Navy Data-at-Rest Security Support Contract
Mobile Armor, St. Louis, MO received a contract from the U.S. Navy to provide data security software to protect the Navy’s data at rest, which is any information stored on computers. Examples of data at rest are files stored on the hard drive of a notebook computer, files on an external backup medium, files on the servers of a storage area network, or files on the servers of an offsite backup service provider.
Here’s what the contract covers, and how authorized US government employees can order it…
Under this enterprise-wide contract (N00104-09-A-ZF30). Mobile Armor will provide its centralized policy management and data protection solutions in addition to its software. The agreement also includes maintenance, training and other support programs. The potential value of the contract is $3.3 million.
Beginning with this award and selection by the U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) Data-at-Rest Tiger Team (DARTT), the Mobile Armor security software has met the requirements set by the U.S. government for data protection. The DARTT is a multi-agency USG Task Force established to provide data-at-rest encryption solutions for mobile computing devices and removable storage media.
Purchase of Mobile Armor’s DoN-wide data security solutions can be made through its authorized reseller MTM Technologies under the U.S. General Services Administration schedule contract (GS-35F-0225T).
