WidePoint and Kyocera Enter Into Strategic Alliance
McLean, VA, October 23, 2014 – WidePoint Corporation (NYSE Mkt: WYY) a leading provider of Managed Mobility Services (MMS) specializing in Cybersecurity and Telecommunications Lifecycle Management (TLM) solutions, and Kyocera Communications, Inc. announced today that they have entered into a Strategic Alliance.
Under terms of the agreement, Kyocera’s portfolio of industry-leading ruggedized mobile devices now will be offered as part of WidePoint’s Telecom Lifecycle Management solutions. WidePoint customers will be able to order Kyocera devices directly from their WidePoint online ordering portals.
In addition, the companies also are currently working to certify interoperability of WidePoint’s Certificate-on-Device security solution sets with Kyocera’s devices. In today’s vulnerable cyber-landscape, Certificate-on-Device authentication on Kyocera devices will enable functionality such as establishing a secure connection, leveraging attribute-based access control, and providing the ability to revoke certificates from devices that are lost or stolen.
Compromised communications, breached data, and hijacked networks can damage any business, but the ability to rely on mobile communications can be a matter of personal safety and national security for first responders, military, and other government users.
WidePoint chief technology officer Daniel E. Turissini said, “WidePoint has long supported enterprises and our government’s 25.3 million first responders with needs related to identity and attribute management in operational environments. We are very pleased to add Kyocera devices to our portfolio and to collaborate on WidePoint Cybersecurity Certificate-on-Device solutions.”
