Incubator site for advances in cryptographic technology
Cryptographic technology to ensure secure voice and data transmission for military, government and some Fortune 500 companies is now being produced by Cummings Engineering, a tenant in the landmark Innovations Incubator facility in west Chandler.
Cummings, established in 2007, calls SecureMobile 1.0 its flagship product that is now a standard-setter for mobile security.
Darren Cummings, the company’s president, said testing with government customers was responsible for an extended lead time prior to the product’s release.
“We deliberately designed our pilots to gain first-hand working knowledge of what our government customers’ real needs are by working closely with them as they tested (our product) for vulnerabilities and utility,” said Cummings.
“We were committed to releasing a product only when we felt the appropriate security was achieved—the stakes are too high for our customers. We are confident this product represents the highest level of secure communications on a commercial off the shelf device today.” Cummings said the company’s achievement positions it as the market leader for secure voice and data products and underscores the company’s role in leading Bring Your Own Device, or BYOD, initiatives to government and military markets where protecting privileged communications is critical.
The company has been working with the U.S. military for the past year as part of a Government-Only Early Adopter Program.
Innovations Incubator was developed by the city of Chandler to bring additional high-wage technology jobs to the community by providing start-up companies space to work and grow.
It provides start-up space for businesses in the cutting-edge fields of biotechnology, bioinformatics, software design, nanotechnology, medical devices, renewable energy and others.
