OAK PARK, IL (PRWEB) July 06, 2016
NowSecure today announced a partnership with immixGroup to provide federal government agencies with mobile app security assessment solutions through several government-wide acquisition contracts (GWACs) including the IT Schedule 70 administered by the General Services Administration (GSA). The partnership also makes NowSecure solutions available through the Solutions for Enterprise-Wide Procurement (SEWP) and the Network-Centric Solutions (NETCENTS) programs managed by NASA and the U.S. Air Force respectively.
As government agencies work to fulfill a mandate to deliver more data and services to their employees and constituencies more quickly, evaluating the security of Android and iOS apps that support their mobile initiatives is paramount. Mobile threats evolve daily, and government agencies need assurance that their apps can withstand attacks on the latest known vulnerabilities.
NowSecure has a long history working with federal defense, law enforcement and civilian agencies to solve mobile security problems, which includes receiving Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase I, II, and III contracts from the Department of Homeland Security (DHS). The immixGroup partnership will allow NowSecure to expand its reach and provide leading mobile app security assessment capabilities to even more agencies within the federal government.
“With government agencies adopting a ‘mobile-first’ mindset to make their employees more productive and better serve the public, they need to perform due diligence in protecting against mobile threats,” said NowSecure CEO Andrew Hoog. “These agencies can now more quickly and easily put security first when developing and assessing the mobile apps they bring to market with Lab Workstation, thanks to our partnership with immixGroup.”
NowSecure Lab Workstation offers a suite of capabilities for static and dynamic testing of Android and iOS mobile apps to enterprise customers, security consultants, forensics researchers, and app security teams working in partnership with software engineering teams. An intuitive interface guides users through static, dynamic, server-side, data storage, privacy, and permissions analysis of mobile apps – typically reducing testing time from two-to-three weeks to one-to-two hours.
Lab Workstation exercises apps in a real-world context on physical devices, rather than emulators, for more accurate results. Reporting includes detailed recommendations for remediating any identified vulnerabilities and maps findings to industry standards such as Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures (CVE), Common Weaknesses Enumeration (CWE), and the National Information Assurance Partnership (NIAP).
Agencies procuring Lab Workstation through relevant acquisition vehicles will receive preferred pricing for the complete, pre-configured NowSecure Lab Workstation kit including an Android device, iOS device, MacBook Pro, 12-month software license, and two seats for computer based training (CBT).
To purchase Lab Workstation via the GSA Schedule 70, SEWP or NETCENTS programs, contact immixGroup at their website or by phone at (703) 752-0610.
