Fiberlink®, the leader in software-as-a-service (SaaS) solutions for secure mobile device and application management, today announced that its MaaS360 mobile device management platform has been selected “Best Security Solution” by the Government Technology Research Alliance (GTRA). GTRA is a non-profit organization comprised of public and private sector leaders dedicated to the development and success of the government IT community. Cloud-based MaaS360 provides a number of federal agencies with mobility intelligence and control over mobile devices, applications and content to keep sensitive government data secure across smartphones, tablets and laptops.
MaaS360 was selected Best Security Solution after helping public sector officials at several agencies enable and secure government-issued and personally owned devices for their mobile workforce. MaaS360 earned the distinction as an invaluable resource to government IT through rapid deployments and the ability to instantly block, quarantine, configure, manage applications and documents. MaaS360 is also recognized as the first and only mobile device management (MDM) solution to receive an authority to operate (ATO) in accordance with the U.S. Federal Information Security Management Act (FISMA) by the U. S. General Services Administration (GSA).
“Continuous monitoring of laptops and smart devices is one of the top government concerns government security executives are facing this year,” said Kelly Yocum, co-founder GTRA. “MaaS360's solutions presented at the GTRA SecureGOV Council Meeting were definitely on point so we are excited the attendees voted them as the Best Security Solution Award winner!”
Fiberlink helps federal CIOs get a cloud service up and running in less than an hour, and MaaS360 already has FedRAMP controls included in its audited System Security Plan. Fiberlink was also recognized by GTRA members for its work with government agencies to quickly and cost effectively meet the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) “Cloud First” policy - the government’s cloud migration initiative - for its ability to increase efficiency and reduce federal operating costs. Agencies use MaaS360 to meet OMB goals for Telework, GreenIT, COOP and Continuous Monitoring.
“It’s an honor to be recognized by GTRA’s membership of government technology officials as the Best Security Solution at this prestigious event," said Fiberlink’s vice president of Federal, Jeff Ward. “MaaS360’s reputation for excellence in safeguarding sensitive government data on iOS, Androids, BlackBerry, Windows Phone and laptop devices comes from our work across multiple agencies. We look forward to helping additional branches meet OMB goals for Cloud First, GreenIT, Continuous Monitoring and Telework with MaaS360.”
