AirWatch is sponsoring and presenting at the 4th Annual Mobile Technology Summit this Wednesday in Washington, D.C. The one-day summit, hosted by the Armed Forces Communications and Electronics Association (AFCEA), hosts members of the intelligence, defense and federal agency community to discuss “best-of-breed mobile solutions from industry and government which solve real-world, tactical and in-garrison challenges,” according to the event website.
AirWatch’s Director of Federal Government Sales Paul Brubaker will introduce the first panel of the day, “Security in the Mobile Environment,” which focuses on mobile security in Department of Defense (DOD) and government agencies.. Prior to joining AirWatch, Brubaker served as the Director of Planning and Performance Management at the DOD. Brubaker has held a variety of other technological roles within the DOD and other federal governmental agencies for the past 25 years.
Joshua McCulloch, a Federal Sales Engineer at AirWatch, has attended and participated in the AFCEA Summit in past years. “AirWatch’s participation in the AFCEA Mobile Technology Summit exposes us to key government leaders and high ranking individuals of the U.S. military,” McCulloch says. Learning the challenges and requirements of these government leaders helps AirWatch refine its mobility solution to better meet the needs of government organizations, McCulloch says.
Earlier this year, AirWatch was approved for the Security and technical Implementation Guide (STIG). The Defense Information Systems Agency’s (DISA) Field Service Operations division provides this approval for software that meets security requirements for operating within a Department of Defense network. The AirWatch Federal Solutions team completed the extensive list of 294 requirements in May. AirWatch also meets government security requirements with Federal Information Processing Standard (FIPS) Publication 140-2 validated encryption for protecting confidential data.
“As we continue to see substantial growth and adoption in the federal community, AirWatch remains focused on developing innovative and highly secure solutions that affectively serve the complex organizations that make up the United States Federal Government,” Brubaker says. “Mobile devices are changing the way government employees work and AirWatch is committed to providing an unwavering level of service to fulfill the federal government functionality and security needs.”
