TYSONS CORNER, VA, Sept. 11, 2017 — Red Hat (NYSE: RHT) and its partner Kryptowire will develop a framework for the automation of mobile application compliance under a contract from the Department of Homeland Security, ExecutiveBiz reported Thursday.
The team will work to build the framework as part of the Assured Mobile Application Lifecycle using Red Hat Enterprise project to facilitate app compliance with the data privacy and security requirements of government users, Red Hat said Wednesday.
“Mobile devices — including smartphones and tablets — are used across government agencies, but these devices and the mobile apps that run on them require a unique approach to security,” said Paul Smith, senior vice president and general manager of Red Hat’s North American public sector business.
Smith, an inductee into Executive Mosaic’s Wash100 for 2017, added that the project aims to advance the automated approach to mobile app security in efforts to mitigate the risk of human error in app releases.
