Mocana, the leader in app and Android™ security, today announced that its KeyDAR™ Encryption mobile security product is providing enterprise-grade security for the new ToughPad™ JT-B1, a 7-inch Android-powered tablet introduced by Panasonic at last week’s Consumer Electronics Show. More information about KeyDAR is available at the Mocana website, at https://www.mocana.com/keydar-encryption.html.
“The enterprise-grade KeyDAR product pre-loaded on the Panasonic ToughPad greatly augments the default security level of the Android OS to provide the extra protection required for corporate, government and military applications,” said Kurt Stammberger, CISSP and vice president of market development at Mocana. “Mocana KeyDAR is also the first FIPS 140-2 validated mobile security product to fully support the latest version of the Android OS, which enables device manufacturers like Panasonic to differentiate their offerings and position themselves well for enterprise and mission-critical markets.”
Designed for mission-critical and highly mobile workers in verticals including military, construction, healthcare, public safety, utilities, retail, maintenance, supply chain logistics and insurance, the ruggedized Panasonic ToughPad JT-B1tablet has been MIL-STD-810G tested for drops, fluid ingress and temperature to assure it delivers reliable performance under circumstances that render typical tablets non-operational. Mocana security built into the Panasonic tablet provides FIPS 140-2 level 1 certified encryption to protect data-at-rest. Available in March, the ToughPad JT-B1 offers a number of security features in various configurations, including Mocana’s KeyDAR encryption, IPsec VPN, trusted boot and root protection.
Mocana KeyDAR Encryption is Android’s most optimized and most efficient DAR encryption product. KeyDAR enables best-practices security while delivering great battery life and fast, responsive devices. FIPS 140-2 level 1 certification makes KeyDAR perfect for device manufacturers like Panasonic that have customers with strict security requirements.
KeyDAR Encryption is fully cross-platform, and works on all versions of the Android OS, as well as all Android-supported hardware platforms.
