SANTA BARBARA, CA — November 18, 2013 — Green Hills Software, the leading supplier of secure embedded and mobile virtualization solutions, and Advanced Ground Information Systems, Inc. (AGIS), the most trusted mobile command, control and communications supplier, today announced a strategic partnership to offer Android LifeRing™, a mobile military tactical operations center on trusted Android smartphones and tablets, built with INTEGRITY® Multivisor™ technology. The integrated solution is a scalable command and control system for First Responders, Joint US & Coalition Forces and Security organizations. LifeRing operates on IP-based PCs, smartphones, and tablets. All users view the position and status of all other users and can digitally collaborate and interface to legacy Military C3I (Command, Control, Communications and Intelligence) systems.

The architecture at the heart of the INTEGRITY Trusted Mobile Device was first delivered to the U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) to address stringent security, privacy, and manageability standards while enabling an uncompromised user experience, and dramatically reducing total cost of ownership. Devices are pre-programmed with Green Hills Software's INTEGRITY Multivisor security technology, a separation kernel-based type-1 hypervisor that delivers a level of security that cannot be achieved with mobile OS-level mechanisms such as application wrapping, containers, access control, or encrypted workspaces. AGIS and Green Hills Software are teaming to bring the most trusted and secure COTS mobile devices to the government and public sector markets.

"LifeRing is the only command and control system designed for cellular as well as any IP communications connectivity," said Cap Beyer, chief executive officer of AGIS. "When running on an INTEGRITY Multivisor trusted mobile device, LifeRing delivers Military, Government Agencies and First Responders the most reliable communications, protection, security, trust and privacy platform in the market."

"LifeRing is a perfect example of a mission-critical, high safety and security application that demands the level of trust that only INTEGRITY architecture can offer," said Gordon Jones, vice president for Secure Virtualization, Green Hills Software. "The security architecture of our INTEGRITY Multivisor trusted mobile devices provides proven, military-grade security while delivering the latest consumer smartphone solutions with modern high performance multimedia."

About INTEGRITY Multivisor
Shipping since 2003, INTEGRITY Multivisor virtualization technology is built upon security-certified separation kernel technology that provides highly assured isolation between one or more "guest" operating systems (personas) while also providing a native open standard execution environment for security-critical tasks, including FIPS 140-2-certified and NSA Suite B-compliant data encryption, user authentication, security event auditing, and remote management. INTEGRITY Multivisor technology offers several approaches to virtualization in ARM-powered devices, including paravirtualization and full virtualization with or without hardware hypervisor acceleration. As the digital world grows in complexity, no single operating system suffices. The hypervisor provides the right level of abstraction the virtual machine for flexibility, scalability, and portability, enabling elegant yet practical solutions to previously intractable computing problems. Green Hills Software is a Gold member of the Samsung Enterprise Alliance Program (SEAP).
