SRA Deals Smart Phone Security Suite, Plans Govt Comm. Across Devices

SRA Deals Smart Phone Security Suite, Plans Govt Comm. Across Devices - top government contractors - best government contracting eventSRA International has spent the past few years helping develop a hardware-based system of security tools for the smart phones of its government customers.

This week, it closed a transaction to sell its stake in the system’s application suite and send an engineering team to R&D partner KoolSpan

KoolSpan manufactures a chip that slides into cell phones via a microSD card. The company said SRA integrated the chip technology into components of the application suite to encrypt phone calls and messages.

The companies used a hardware-based system to attempt to make hacking or interception of communications more difficult. The system plans to enable groups of government employees or of other enterprises to communicate securely across multiple devices.

KoolSpan said the suite is compatible with the Blackberry and Android platforms, on top of other commercial off-the-shelf devices. It plans on being iPhone compatible in 2012.
