Bethesda, Md.-based Digital Management, Inc. (DMI) this week announced it will partner with Mobile Active Defense to add a patented layer of security to enhance protection for data-at-rest and data-in-transit in Mobile Device Management (MDM) implementations.
As part of the agreement, DMI will configure and manage the enhanced security offering as part of its comprehensive suite of Managed Mobility Services that include provisioning, integration, monitoring services, mobile device management and mobile application management solutions.
DMI is a provider of mobile enterprise, big-data solutions and services and Mobile Active Defense is an innovator in mobile security that has developed patent-pending technologies in its Mobile Enterprise Compliance and Security (MECS) server. The MECS solution is highly scalable, redundant, fault-tolerant and provides complete data-at-rest and data-in-transit security with active threat response, the company said. The MECS is a virtual private network (VPN) concentrator with mobile network access control and an advanced mobile firewall with content filtering as well as a public key infrastructure.
Mobile Active Defense is headquartered in Atlanta, Ga., with offices in Mainz, Germany and London, England.
Rick Doten, chief information and security officer at DMI, said, “Mobile Active Defense advanced protections for mobile devices and enterprise data are a perfect complement to our managed mobility services. Together, we’re able to offer our clients options for mobile security that take them well beyond those provided by many MDM systems.”
The collaborative effort will address the issues MDM customers are experiencing with securing data-in-motion and automating a VPN connection for seamless access control to corporate resources. The partnership will expand mobile security for customers, providing them with the ability to control and secure smartphones and tablets with the same policies that are available for networked workstations.
Spencer Cobb, co-founder and CEO of Mobile Active Defense, said: “With more than half-a-million devices under management for hundreds of customers, DMI is the ideal partner to bring our advanced security technologies into leading enterprises worldwide.
