ASHBURN, Va., June 24 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- SteelCloud, Inc. (Pink Sheets: SCLD), a leading developer of mobility computing appliance solutions, announced today that organizations within the U.S. Department of Defense can now quickly and easily migrate from BlackBerry® Enterprise Server 4.1 to a STIG-compliant BlackBerry Enterprise Server 5 environment in minutes by deploying the SteelWorks® FedMobile™ appliance solution in conjunction with its recently announced SteelWorks Transporter+™migration tool.

SteelWorks FedMobile enables virtually any size group in the Department of Defense to quickly, easily and cost effectively implement BlackBerry Enterprise Server.  SteelWorks FedMobile delivers a complete, optimized, ready to deploy hardware/software solution that includes a hardened version of Microsoft® Windows Server, BlackBerry Enterprise Server 5, and SteelCloud's innovative EverAvail™ software suite for patch management, back-up, and disaster recovery.  SteelWorks FedMobile is designed to support both new installations of the BlackBerry Enterprise Server 5, as well as migrations from previous versions.

All DoD organizations have a mandate to conform to certain Defense Information Security Agency (DISA) Security Technical Implementation Guides or "STIGs."  The SteelCloud SteelWorks FedMobile is an enhanced implementation of its appliance for BlackBerry Enterprise Server that leverages BlackBerry IT policies to provide a consistent pre-configured DoD STIG-compliant BlackBerry environment in under an hour, rather than weeks or months.  SteelWorks FedMobile is compliant with the Wireless STIG, including the BlackBerry Checklist, and the STIGs for Windows, SQL, and the .Net Framework.

"Governments around the world continue to choose BlackBerry for its leading edge security, manageability and extensibility," said Tyler Lessard, VP Global Alliances & Developer Relations, Research In Motion.  "Many of our government customers are eager to upgrade to BlackBerry Enterprise Server 5 in order to maximize the effectiveness of their BlackBerry smartphone deployments and the SteelWorks FedMobile appliance solution and SteelWorks Transporter+ migration tool can help streamline the process."

"SteelWorks FedMobile with Transporter+ significantly reduces the time and technical expertise required to migrate to the new BlackBerry Enterprise Server 5," said Brian Hajost, SteelCloud President and CEO.  "We understand the need to protect our nation's sensitive data and infrastructures.  SteelCloud has engineered its solutions for the DoD to address the cyber threats that could undermine the security and operation of this important mobile application."

SteelWorks Transporter+ simplifies the process of migrating user accounts to BlackBerry Enterprise Server 5.  After downloading the free Transporter+ tool, administrators can use its simple visual interface to drag and drop users from their previous domain to their new BlackBerry Enterprise Server 5 domain.  The user-friendly graphical interface makes migration simple to understand and intuitive, plus the built-in error checking allows administrators to confidently move accounts between domains.  SteelWorks Transporter+ can be downloaded free of charge by visiting http://www.steelcloud.com/sw_mobile/transporter.asp.
