About Apriva

Founded in 1999, Apriva is the leading wireless solutions provider integrating the hardware, software, and network infrastructure required to develop and deploy high-performance, high-reliability solutions from end-to-end for Secure Mobile Messaging.

About Apriva's Secure Mobile Email Architecture

Apriva’s secure mobile email system is a client/server encrypted messaging application with a device and digital network agnostic architecture. It provides PKI S/MIME email, including attachment encryption, full data-at-rest protection, and compliance with relevant protection profiles for Windows Mobile OS devices. It works with hard-token Smart Card Readers, or via soft-token certificates. Apriva’s system authenticates, stores, and encrypts all data-at-rest on the device. The AES 256 encrypted messaging, data sync, and PIM databases are fully synchronizing all messaging transactions, contacts, calendars, tasks and notes tying directly back to the customer’s enclave and Microsoft Exchange server environment though Apriva’s Multi Protocol Gateway (MPG) infrastructure. The Apriva MPG intelligently routes traffic among multiple domains and enclaves without ever storing or queuing messages the way a traditional Network Operation Center (NOC) does and never co-mingles authorized user’s traffic with traffic outside of the enterprise’s control.

Connectivity for Secure Mobile Environment Portable Electronic Device (SME PED)

The DISA initiative is a critical, urgent step in leveraging DoD’s ongoing investments in intelligence, reconnaissance, and command and control capabilities. Since the evolution of wireless mobile communications, DoD personnel have identified the need for secure devices to provide the same wireless features for classified systems as that of an unclassified system.

Through technologies like Blackberries, wireless e-mail, web browsing and document viewing, a new breed of mobile workforce has been enabled. Today's information technology must increase situational awareness, productivity and on-call status in order to be responsive to the needs of today's workforce. Through the use of the Secure Mobile Environment Portable Electronic Device (SME PED), DoD personnel will be able to securely access classified information systems while away from stationary mediums. The SME PED is designed to provide up to Top Secret voice and Secret data for its users.
