Under the contract, the company will provide Credant Mobile Guardian (CMG) to protect all government data stored in laptops, desktops and other removable media.

Based on a flexible, single-system architecture, the solution combines policy-based encryption and enforcement, automatic device detection, authentication, auditing and reporting capabilities.
