HighSide, Inc., the leader in end-to-end (E2E) encrypted collaboration, has been selected by Science Applications International Corp. (NYSE: SAIC) to bring HighSide’s secure sharing, collaboration and communications platform to U.S. government customers.
HighSide’s E2E encrypted messaging and collaboration application will be available through SAIC’s Rugged Apps™, which provides government customers highly secure versions of commercial mobile applications. Rugged Apps fortifies mobile applications by ensuring they are National Information Assurance Partnership (NIAP) compliant and shields against constantly evolving cyber threats.
HighSide is built on a crypto-inspired decentralized encryption and authentication protocol, delivering an ultra-secure, compliant and centrally-managed platform to power the future of work for enterprise and government organizations.
“We couldn’t be more excited to have our encryption protocol and HighSide application selected by SAIC as one of their first Rugged Apps™,” said Brendan Diaz, chief executive officer for HighSide. “Our partnership with SAIC will help further our goal of delivering the most secure and controlled collaboration environment to the government and their supply chain. With a shift in operations to hybrid remote teams, having a secure and reliable way to collaborate on projects, share sensitive data and manage user access is more important than ever.”
“SAIC understands that government agencies want to use popular mobile applications to carry out their missions. Unfortunately, many commercial apps contain cybersecurity vulnerabilities,” said Michael LaRouche, president of SAIC’s National Security and Space Sector. “Rugged Apps offers SAIC’s innovative scanning and testing services for these popular applications, enabling the demonstration of meeting the government’s rigorous security requirements. After commercial apps are ruggedized, they can be securely used by the military, federal agencies and state governments.”
