MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., April 19, 2017 /PRNewswire/ — MobileIron (NASDAQ: MOBL), the security backbone for the digital enterprise, today announced an integration with the Department of Defense’s (DoD) instantiation of Derived Credentials known as «Purebred.» Purebred enables the DoD to take full advantage of mobility by eliminating the need for common access cards (CAC) to authenticate mobile identity.

«By integrating with Purebred we allow DoD entities to use these credentials in a streamlined, mobile-first way,» said Sean Frazier, Chief Technical Evangelist, MobileIron. «Our derived credentials solution ensures the highest levels of security without compromising the employee’s user experience. Passwords and CAC sleds are antithetical to mobility and delivering this capability is an important step forward in a truly fluid, mobilized workforce.»

MobileIron’s derived credentials solution lets government agencies can extend their existing security investments in PKI & Common Access Cards (CAC), to give mobile devices secure access to agency resources without requiring employees to use additional hardware like sleds or smart card readers. Derived credentials allow organizations that are using smart cards for authentication to easily extend this technology to mobile devices, providing strong, password-less authentication to the most sensitive of resources. Using derived credentials, government agencies can create a productive mobile first environment without compromising security. 

The solution is compliant with government regulations and security standards such as Homeland Security Presidential Directive-12 (HSPD-12), Federal ICAM initiatives, FIPS 201 and NIST SP:800-157.
