Dulles, VA – October 7, 2013 – Technica Corporation, a leader in Systems Engineering, Software Development, Information Assurance and Product Solutions for the Federal Government, announced today that it is one of the awardees on the Broad Agency Announcement (BAA) 12-01 for the Mobile Device Common-Access-Card (CAC)-Enabled Virtual Thin Client in support of the Department of Defense (DoD). This BAA will allow Technica to develop a potential next generation virtual thin client mobility solution to support both managed and unmanaged mobiles devices that will enable users to securely access information or applications on DoD networks. The initiative seeks an innovative solution for a secure mobility solution that is compatible with multiple vendor platforms to provide CAC authentication, including future Near Field Communication (NFC) technology, Data In Transit encryption, and use of S/MIME for government email access rendered through a thin client that ensures no data storage on the mobile device. Supported devices would typically include smart phones and handheld tablets such as devices based on the Android, Apple, and BlackBerry mobile operating systems. The BAA has a value of $452,929 over seven months.
“This innovative thin client solution will support any type of CAC interface that is available today or in the future,” said President and Chief Executive Officer, Miguel Collado. “Our solution will allow our customers to incorporate secure access to DoD network applications, on either personally owned or government-issued mobile devices.”
