Mobile Security Software May Now Be Purchased to Protect Sensitive Government Communications and Data

COLUMBUS, Ohio , Feb. 23 /PRNewswire/ --- SMobile Systems, the leading provider of security solutions for mobile phones has received its GSA schedule contract # GS-35F-0179V. SMobile products are now available on GSA Advantage, the Federal Government procurement site.

"We have provided our services and security applications to a wide cross section of government agencies over the years," said Neil Book , president of SMobile Systems. "However, until now agencies and departments that wanted to utilize our technology to secure their mobile devices had to go through a cumbersome process to receive approval for the purchase. Being on the GSA schedule not only means a shorter path to protecting some of the world's most sensitive data, but it validates our company mission to provide the best mobile security software on the market."

Security Shield(TM) Government Edition from SMobile Systems addresses the critical threats facing government agencies using smartphones. Users are protected from malware, hack and physical compromise with anti-virus, firewall and remote lock, wipe and backup applications. A unique feature to SecurityShield: Government Edition is the ability to remotely revoke unwanted or nefarious applications that may have been downloaded to a device.

"No one can dispute the need to protect Government data, from simple medical records to top-secret documents, the agencies of the United States have a responsibility to remain vigilant," said Joe Hagin , SMobile Systems board member and former White House deputy chief of staff. "With direct access to products like SMobile's SecurityShield, departments and bureaus can now take the necessary steps to protect information from cyber threats that could compromise national security."
