Secure Mobile Device Technology Delivered to U.S. Marine Corps

Trusted hand-held commercial devices available now for network pilots or trials

Carlsbad, Calif.  – In Fall 2013 the U.S. Marine Corps Systems Command took delivery of off-the-shelf mobile devices with advanced information security engineered by ViaSat Inc. (NASDAQ: VSAT). The USMC is now evaluating this first production delivery of 150 protected mobile devices on a beta service network. This new secure mobile system will be available on any Android device and multiple carriers for pilots.

While this development is for government unclassified and classified use, the ViaSat system is based entirely on commercial technology and is designed to provide secure communication of sensitive information for any government or commercial customer. The technology creates a virtual secure environment on standard android devices, enabling a highly trusted platform for secure enterprise extension to the mobile network.

“We’ve delivered this secure virtualization in a standard android device to enable a highly-trusted platform for the mobile enterprise,” said Jon Korecki, executive director of Secure Network Systems at ViaSat. “Now we’re at work on integrating these protected commercial devices into a variety of carrier networks and managed services.”

ViaSat cyber and information security for commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) smartphones and tablets adds three key protection benefits:

  • Secure communications over 3G/4G/LTE cellular and Wi-Fi networks.
  • Secure storage of sensitive data.
  • Protection against malware attacks.
