Mobile Security for Government Agencies

Good for Government is a secure, enterprise mobility platform that lets you uphold the strictest compliance over mobile devices and grant your employees safe access to agency information and applications—even if they are using today's popular smartphones or tablets, like iPhones, iPads, and Androids.

Compliance In Device Management

With Good, citizen and agency data is protected and kept confidential on mobile devices. Good separates work data from personal data in a secure, encrypted container. Our solution leverages FIPS-certified cryptographic libraries to encrypt government data over-the-air and at rest on the device.

Data loss prevention

Good minimizes government data loss by enforcing security policies, such as password requirements, prevention of cut/copy/paste of government data to unapproved consumer applications, and detection and remediation of jailbroken or rooted devices. Agency data wipes of devices are simple and can be executed remotely, leaving employee personal information intact. The Web-based Good Mobile Control portal makes it easy for you to manage security policies and enforce compliance.

Your agency can save on overhead by deploying secure access to government email and applications on the devices your employees already own. Required training and support are minimal. Compatible with Microsoft Exchange and Lotus Domino, Good servers can be implemented in hours and agency employees provisioned within minutes. The Good platform scales quickly, so as your employee base grows and your mobile initiatives expand, your services can keep pace while incurring little or no overhead.

Mobile Regulatory Compliance

As security concerns related to mobile devices increase, legislators and government regulators have expanded their guidance regarding the protection of citizen information on employee mobile devices. Good mobility software can help Federal, State and Local government agencies implement a number of mobile security controls to protect sensitive information and address regulatory requirements.

Federal Information Security Management Act (FISMA) provides a framework for securing federal government information technology assets and states that the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) is responsible for providing guidelines for selecting and specifying security controls for information systems supporting federal agency operations and assets. Good helps federal agencies comply with FISMA guidelines by securing and managing smart phones and tablets. In addition, Good has an approved STIG for Windows Mobile and draft STIG for iOS.
Health Insurance Portability Act (HIPAA) requires that email communication related to patient health information be encrypted. Good leverages a FIPS 140-2 certified cryptographic module for data-at-rest and data-in-transit.
State data encryption and privacy laws such as California SB 1386 and Massachusetts 201 CMR 17 require that State agencies protect information collected about citizens, including names, addresses, and phone numbers; bank and credit card account numbers; income and credit histories; and Social Security numbers. Good provides encryption of email and documents that may contain a citizen's personal information at rest on the device and while in transit over-the-air. Good also provides security policies like password requirements, remote wipe, jailbreak / rooted detection and preventing cut/copy/ paste from the Good app to minimize potential data leaks.
