Fixmo to Build Pentagon Mobile Mgmt Platform

HTCphoneThe Defense Department has hired mobile security company Fixmo to develop a mobile device management platform for Pentagon staff to access email and calendar activities and browse the Internet using Google Android and Apple mobile devices, Defense News reported Monday.

Nicole Blake Johnson writes the Pentagon is acquiring a monitoring software and container tool for the MDM, which the department aims to have in the initial operating capability phase by January.

Johnson writes Fixmo’s system is designed to consolidate mobile app security and spot unintended or malicious changes to operating system files, apps and device configurations.

Fixmo also built the technology to prompt an automatic lockdown or remotely wipe the device remotely if needed.

Systems integrator DMI holds a $16 million contract to build a platform for initially supporting more than 100,000 gadgets, Johnson reports.
