The National Institute of Standards and Technology has certifiedÂ Hypori‘s virtual mobile device offering as compliant withÂ Federal Information Processing Standard 140-2Â level 1.
Hypori said MondayÂ federal civilian agencies, intelligence communities and military branches can now utilize the company’s virtual mobile device toÂ help secure applications and data that might be vulnerable on a physical mobile device.
TheÂ device is designed to supportÂ communications, mission-critical applications and situational awareness activitiesÂ of defense agencies and first responders that useÂ mobile devices.
“The needs and requirements specific to federal agencies are complex but also paramount to national security and keeping our government operating efficiently,” said Bill Moore, director of Hypori’s public sector business.
NIST’s certification makes Hypori the first virtual mobile infrastructure provider to secure theÂ FIPS 140-2 for a virtual mobile device and adds to the company’s validations from federal standards bodies that includeÂ the Common Criteria for Information Technology Security Evaluation certification from the National Information Assurance Partnership.
