Secure Information Exchange Vendor Demonstrates Labelling Across Email, Documents & IM/CHAT.

Maidenhead, June 7th, 2010 – At the 2010 Coalition Warrior Interoperability Demonstration (CWID), Boldon James will be helping to secure attendee’s information by providing labelling/protective marking products to the CWID Core Infrastructure team, enabling them to make the software available for all CWID attendees on demand.

Boldon James will also be presenting two trials at CWID 2010 on the core CWID Infrastructure.

  • An XMPP IM/CHAT Labelling trial of SAFE IM for XMPP demonstrating this Windows client application on the desktop and supporting server and its adherence to the open XMPP standards that are widely used within Defence
  • A trial of Boldon James SAFEmail and SAFEoffice demonstrating the set of client extensions that plug in to Microsoft Outlook, Word, Excel and PowerPoint to provide a fully integrated desktop Labelling capability.

The above trials will be installed on both the UK ‘purple’ and ‘red’ domains and will include interoperability testing with the USA and NATO trials.

“Our presence at CWID underlines our continuing commitment to current and future military customers” said Boldon James CEO Martin Sugden. “We are delighted to have this opportunity to further test and de-risk our flagship product SAFEmail in the CWID environment. Additionally, as SAFEoffice and SAFE IM for XMPP reach the end of their initial development cycle, the CWID assessments are key to proving the readiness of the product for wider deployment”.

CWID is an annual technology demonstration event that is used to identify and deliver future military capabilities, where information technologies are assessed against simulated operational scenarios. The demonstration evaluates technologies and capabilities for exchanging information among coalition partners, military services, government agencies, first responders and combatant commanders. The event will run from 7-25 June and will be held at the Defence Science and Technology Laboratory (Dstl).
