New SteelCloud Appliance Rental Program for BlackBerry Supports DoD Email Consolidation Efforts
STIG-compliant Appliance Immediately Addresses CAT 1 Vulnerabilities

ASHBURN, Va., Jan. 18, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- SteelCloud, Inc. (OTCQB: SCLD.PK), a leading developer of mobility appliance and VMware® solutions announces a new short-term rental program for its SteelWorks® FedMobile™ appliance for BlackBerry® Enterprise Server (BES) 5 in order to facilitate the upgrade to a STIG-compliant platform while proceeding with email consolidation.

The SteelWorks FedMobile rental program is designed to provide military installations with a flexible, plug-and-play solution to quickly deploy BES 5 in order to immediately address STIG compliance mandates and to alleviate potential vulnerability exposures such as presented by Carrier IQ™.  This low-cost rental program is designed to use Operations and Maintenance funding and requires no long-term commitment.  The month-to-month rental period can be for as little as 30 days.

"SteelCloud strongly supports the DoD's efforts to increase efficiency by consolidating their email resources," said Brian Hajost, President, and CEO of SteelCloud.  "We are pleased to offer an easy-to-implement limited-term solution that will immediately address both STIG compliancy and potential vulnerabilities such as Carrier IQ.  For as little as $995 per month, SteelCloud provides a complete BES STIG-compliant operating environment to which a command can upgrade in less than a week.  When their email consolidation is completed, they can simply return the SteelWorks BES solution with no additional obligation."

Available as a specialized hardware appliance or as VMware software, SteelWorks FedMobile deploys a hardened Windows environment and BES 5 system for single or high availability deployments in under 60 minutes.  The SteelWorks rental package also includes STIG360, our compliancy support service that keeps systems up to date with current STIGs, significantly reducing the burden on budgets and staff.  As a result, military commands are able to re-allocate IT resources to other mission-critical tasks rather than committing weeks or months to manual system deployment, hardening, and maintenance.  For more information about SteelCloud's rental program, email info@SteelCloud.com.
