Lockheed Martin And Fixmo Offer New Level Of Security Authentication For Mobile Devices

ANNAPOLIS JUNCTION, Md., Feb. 20, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Lockheed Martin (NYSE: LMT) and Fixmo, Inc. have integrated technologies to provide a new level of secure authentication for consumer grade mobile devices with unparalleled ease of use by joining forces with Fixmo's SafeZone™ and Lockheed Martin's Mandrake SG™ technology.  This new 'Secure Gesture' capability will be featured in demonstrations at the RSA conference in San Francisco Feb. 25March 1 at booths 0135 and 341.

Fixmo SafeZone™ is a defense-grade secure workspace solution for iOS and Android devices that keeps all corporate email, browsing, documents and applications encrypted, contained, and under IT control no matter who owns the device. Lockheed Martin's Mandrake SG™ technology will enable smartphone and tablet users to authenticate into Fixmo SafeZone™ with a simple, user-defined gesture, which has been proven to be more secure and far easier to use than a 14-character complex, randomly generated password. 

"We're eager to share this capability with current and new customers with high security requirements who are seeking an innovative and user friendly solution," said Darrell Durst, Vice President for Lockheed Martin's Cyber Solutions line of business.  "This collaboration brings the best of our technology together to enable secure and compliant mobile computing in the workplace without compromising the end-user experience or regulatory requirements."

By integrating Lockheed's Mandrake Secure Gesture capabilities into the Fixmo SafeZone secure workspace, Fixmo can now enable business users and government employees to easily switch contexts between the personal and business sides of the device while ensuring the integrity and identity of the user. 

"Our customers in both the public and private sector are looking for no-compromise solutions to enable smartphones and tablets to be used for highly sensitive, mission critical business applications and content," said Bruce Gilley, President of Fixmo U.S. "Through our collaboration with Lockheed Martin, we can now protect all business apps and sensitive data on mobile devices with some of the most powerful multi-factor authentication technology that we've seen to-date—without requiring the user to remember a highly complex passcode or carry additional hard tokens or smartcards."
