CACI International has teamed with BlackBerry in creating the first certified and secure mobile communications application, which will initially be offered to 4 million government-issued cellphones covered by Controlled Unclassified Information requirements.
The commercially available app will allow government officials to make calls and send text messages securely, CACI said.
The two companies built SecuSUITE from scratch to meet the National Security Agency’s Commercial Solution for Classified program requirements. The solution is available through GSA-70 and is in the process of obtaining FedRAMP certification after exceeding federal requirements. It’s also included on the NSA-approved vendors list for certified mobile solutions. NSA have cleared the solution to its secret CSfC standard.
“Our client base is increasingly mobile,” said CACI President and CEO John Mengucci. “We believe that U.S. Government employees, Chief Information Officers, and Chief Information Security Officers should have confidence their cell phone calls and text messages are secure and protected to the same standard as government email. CACI and BlackBerry developed this capability to mitigate evolving threats and meet our customer’s needs.”
BlackBerry is trusted by all of the G7 governments said BlackBerry Executive Chairman and CEO John Chen.
Government officials can download the app and agencies can push the app via a Mobile Device Management platform to their current government-issued iOS or Android devices.
