Department of Commerce Implements MaaS360 for Mobile Device Management

PHILADELPHIA, Jan. 15, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Fiberlink®, the leader in cloud-based solutions for secure mobile device management (MDM) and mobile application management (MAM), today announced that the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), a scientific agency within the Department of Commerce, has deployed MaaS360 to provide visibility and control over government-owned mobile devices. With a mission to understand and predict changes in climate, weather, oceans and coasts, NOAA is using MaaS360 to meet the unique demands of its growing mobile workforce while helping to lead the effort to expand mobility initiatives at other operational units within the Department of Commerce, including the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) and the United States Census Bureau.

MaaS360 provides NOAA with the key technology it needs to configure smartphones and tablets over the air, enforce security policies on mobile devices, separate government and personal data, and distribute mobile apps. The Department of Commerce joins the Department of the Interior, the General Services Administration (GSA) and other federal agencies that trust MaaS360 as their enterprise MDM solution, enabling them to quickly and cost-effectively meet Office of Management and Budget (OMB) goals for Continuous Monitoring, Green IT, Bring Your Own Device (BYOD), Cloud First and Shared Services.

"MaaS360 provides NOAA with a scalable, enterprise class MDM solution that gives us mobile flexibility in a secure environment," said Joe Klimavicz, NOAA CIO. "The solution easily integrates into our current architecture and provides a robust set of tools to manage our existing, as well as future, mobile device requirements."

Fiberlink was the first MDM provider to receive authority to operate (ATO) from the federal government in accordance with FISMA, the Federal Information Security Management Act, and is also in the process of FedRamp certification. In addition, MaaS360 has been SOC 2 Type II compliant since 2007, and is a participating member of the Cloud Security Alliance helping to set mobile cloud standards for the entire industry.

"Cloud computing initiatives have taken center stage, and that includes almost all areas of government that have also seen their employees mix professional with the personal on mobile devices," said Jeff Ward, vice president of federal sales at Fiberlink. "MaaS360 is the best choice for agencies looking to strike the right balance between mobile security policies and government employee productivity."

MaaS360 for the Public Sector gives government agencies integrated mobility management capabilities across devices, apps and documents, delivering a more efficient and secure infrastructure operations model. Key benefits include:

  • Cloud-based delivery model for agencies to meet initiatives and acquisition reforms required by the OMB's Cloud First and Shared Services programs.
  • Mobility Intelligence dashboards and reporting provides continuous monitoring, automated enforcement and remediation on any device out of compliance with agency policies.
  • Detailed CyberScope compliance reports on patches and the status of security and data protection applications ensure that technical safeguards for federal security guidelines are in effect at all times.
  • Personal Privacy Protection (BYOD Privacy Settings) enables agencies to more rapidly and securely adopt BYOD policies.
  • Single platform to securely manage mobile users across smartphones, tablets and laptops on government and employee-owned devices.
