MobileIron earns DISA STIG approval to operate on US DoD networks

MobileIron (NASDAQ: MOBL) core platform has received Security Technical Implementation Guide (STIG) approval from the Defense Information Systems Agency (DISA), allowing the US Department of Defense (DoD) agencies to deploy MobileIron on both Android and iOS devices within certain DoD networks, the company said.

STIGs are the configuration standards for DoD Information Assurance (IA) and IA-enabled devices and systems. Since 1998, DISA has played a role enhancing the security posture of DoD´s security systems by providing STIGs. STIGs contain technical guidance to “lock down” information systems and software that might otherwise be vulnerable to a malicious computer attack.

MobileIron´s STIG approval comes five weeks after it received common criteria certification for mobile device management protection profile V2 from the National Information Assurance Partnership (NIAP). NIAP is the United States government initiative, operated by the National Security Agency (NSA), which oversees the national program to evaluate technology products for conformance to common criteria. Common criteria evaluations involve extensive and rigorous testing of the security aspects of a product or system.

MobileIron provides a secure foundation for companies around the world to transform into mobile first organizations.
