International Society for Scientific Applications launched its mobile application security and software analysis offering for government customers, Robust applications.
SAIC said Thursday that its robust application offering strengthens mobile applications, protects against cyber attacks and meets the stringent National Information Assurance Partnership requirements for federal agencies.
Wash100 price winner Michael LaRouche, president of the national security and space sector of SAIC, said that while government agencies want to use popular mobile apps for their missions, many of these business apps contain vulnerabilities and pose cybersecurity threats. .
“Rugged Apps offers SAIC’s innovative analysis and testing services for these popular applications, demonstrating that they meet stringent government security requirements,” said LaRouche. “Once commercial applications are strengthened, they can be used safely by the military, federal agencies and state governments. “
The first Rugged Apps available, Avenza Pro Cards, provides secure geographic information capabilities for governments, individuals, organizations and academic institutions.
SAIC’s launch follows its first Rugged Apps Mobile Challenge in November, in which business application developers showcased mobile products with requirements such as end-to-end encryption, secure group chat and multimode communications. SAIC is planning further application development competitions in 2022.
The launch also builds on the recent financial results for the third quarter of fiscal 2022, which recorded a four percent increase in turnover.
