Cummings Engineerings Address BYOD Security for Military, Government Agencies

By Jessica Binns, Contributing Editor — July 05, 2012

Cummings Engineering released its flagship product SecureMobile 1.0, powered by SAIFE, the Secure Agile Interoperable Framework for the Enterprise

Cummings offers secure voice and data products that address the Bring Your Own Device, or BYOD, initiatives for government, law enforcement, homeland security, and military markets where protecting privileged communications is critical. The company has been conducting pilots with the U.S. military for the past year as part of a Government-Only Early Adopter Program.

Cummings' products employ a patent-pending cryptographic foundation for all of its products which has been validated by the U.S. Government's National Institute of Standards & Technology's Federal Information Processing Standards Publications (FIPS 140-2).

While this security solution is already in use at the federal level, SecureMobile 1.0 is now available for state and local law enforcement agencies.

Cummings Engineering built its products and innovations around patent-pending Cummings' technology named the "Secure Agile Interoperable Framework for the Enterprise (SAIFE)." SAIFE enables users to achieve trusted mobile security and information sharing across any network and any device.

The technology leverages military-grade encryption, known as the Suite B algorithms from the National Security Agency (NSA), to apply the highest grade of security available in the commercial market.

"Commercial mobile devices are ubiquitous and important as they help our government IT departments by lowering costs. However, mobile security is difficult, and connecting them can create a significant threat to the system and the people they support. SecureMobile is the first of many applications powered by SAIFE to overcome these threats and help enable trusted use of commercial phones, tablets and networked devices," said Darren Cummings, president of Cummings Engineering.
