Tyfone to bring mobile security solutions to US government
Tyfone, developer of mobile software and NFC technology, has entered into an agreement with In-Q-Tel (IQT), a non-profit group that promotes innovative technologies for the U.S. government. Together, the two companies plan to promote mobile security and NFC technology solutions for use by the federal government. IQT notes that Tyfone boasts of an impressive portfolio of these solutions, as well as a long history of leveraging these solutions to the benefit of its customers in numerous industries.
Mobile security continues to grow in importance
Mobile security is becoming an increasingly important issue, especially for the federal government. Government officials, especially those working in agencies such as the Federal Bureau of Investigation, rely heavily on mobile devices such as smart phones in daily operations. Important information is often trafficked through these mobile devices, which make them a prime target for hackers and parties interested in stealing such information. IQT believes that the mobile security solutions developed by Tyfone have the capability to address the long standing security problems that exist in the mobile space.
NFC platform could secure financial transactions
Beyond the federal government, Tyfone offers a mobile commerce platform that makes use of NFC technology. This technology is capable of turning a mobile device into a digital wallet or payment platform, allowing consumers to purchase products with nothing but their smart phone. Tyfone notes that its NFC platform has been used to process more than 7 million secure financial transactions. IQT believes that the platform could be of some use to the federal government, as Tyfone’s cloud computing network, which operates the NFC platform, could help secure transactions made by federal officials.
IQT promotes the use of Tyfone solutions
The Tyfone network is capable of securing a wide variety of mobile channels. IQT believes that incorporating the company’s platform could help secure highly sensitive information, financial data, and government networks. Tyfone’s solutions may help boost mobile security in the U.S. government, if federal agencies and government officials are keen to adopt and make use of the platform extensively.
