12 Days of Tactical Christmas Winners

Monday, October 29th, 2012

It’s come to our attention that some winners still have not received their prizes. I have to say that this is one of the most embarrassing situations I have ever been party to. Unfortunately, we involved another party in the contest and as it turned out, many of the extra prizes that were added through that party didn’t come through. This has been very troubling for me and in the end, it’s SSD’s responsibility so if we still owe you something, please email [email protected] and we’ll get you sorted out even if we have to purchase the items for you.

Cummings Launches First Commercial Product at HALO Counter-Terrorism Summit

Monday, October 29th, 2012

Cummings Engineering, in partnership with Ascent Rugged Mobile, is launching SAIFE Defender, what they are touting as the world’s first commercial rugged Android device with secure digital communications at this week’s HALO Counter-Terrorism Summit in San Diego California.

SAIFE Defender, a rugged mobile Android device with interoperable secure communications capabilities, is unique and cost-effective because it is platform neutral; field officers can communicate securely with each other even if they are using different devices, such as a Blackberry, iPhone or Droid. Additionally, agencies don’t have to invest in unique radio infrastructure but instead can securely leverage existing commercial carrier networks such as Verizon, AT&T, and others.

“We want to be the Swiss Army Knife of secure mobile applications for the military and law enforcement communities,” said Darren Cummings, CEO, Cummings Engineering. “Our product is truly BYOD, Bring Your Own Device, giving users the ability to leverage commercially available hardware and software to operate on any commercial network, cellular or WiFi and remain secure and protected.”

Additionally, specialized applications are built on top of Cummings’ secure framework offering government users capabilities they didn’t previously have or couldn’t use due to the lack of security.

The underlying technology that encrypts, stores and transmits the data has been accredited by the National Institute of Standards & Technology (FIPS 140-2). This allows the U.S. government and other regulated industries such as medical services that collect, store, transfer, share and disseminate sensitive information to quickly and cost-effectively use the modules and security capabilities Cummings offers.

Wild Things has taken a different position than a lot of companies in the industry. We are holding stock and are able to deliver bulk orders with little to no delay.
