KryptowireÂ has secured a position on the General Services Administration‘sÂ Schedule 70 contracting vehicle to offer a toolÂ the company designed to help agenciesÂ secure third-party applications inÂ federally approved mobile devices.
The company built its technology as part ofÂ a cybersecurity research and development program run by theÂ Department of Homeland Security‘s science and technology directorate, DHS said Friday.
DHS S&T then helped Kryptowire secure a Schedule 70 contractÂ throughÂ GSA’sÂ FASt Lane pilot initiative, the department noted.
“S&Tâ€™s priority is to help provide progressive tools, technologies and methods to help reduce vulnerabilities and malware in mobile devices and application, so this will help accelerate the adoption of secure mobile technologies in the future,” saidÂ Vincent Sritapan, mobile security program manager at DHSâ€™ cybersecurity division.
GSA introducedÂ the FASt Lane programÂ in a bid toÂ increase the number ofÂ qualified vendors who supplyÂ information technology products and services to customer agencies.
