SAN FRANCISCO, February 14, 2011 — SRA International, Inc. (NYSE: SRX), a leading provider of technology and strategic consulting services and solutions to government organizations and commercial clients, today announced the launch of SRA One Vault Messenger, an encryption solution for Short Message Service (SMS) transmissions (text messages) for BlackBerry smartphones. One Vault Messenger is a new addition to the SRA One Vault™ suite of products, which was released in 2010 as the first and only hardware-anchored voice security solution for an off-the-shelf BlackBerry.

Designed for executives, first responders and government agencies that currently ‘text in the clear’, One Vault Messenger features an intuitive interface and leverages technology from Koolspan – the developers of a tamper-resistant microSD encryption card (TrustChip) – to defend against unwanted surveillance and cyber hacking. Combined with SRA One Vault Voice, which encrypts voice communication, and built-in email encryption from Research in Motion (RIM), One Vault Messenger offers a secure texting environment for BlackBerry smartphone users.

“Today, both GSM and CDMA mobile networks lack the cyber security protection necessary to prevent sensitive information from being exposed,” said SRA Senior Vice President of Offerings and Products Pat Burke. “As the mobile workforce expands at an unprecedented rate, mobile security requirements are a priority consideration across enterprises. One Vault Voice and One Vault Messenger provide a layer of security never before available for BlackBerry smartphone users.”

One Vault Messenger will be available by Spring 2011, and will be delivered through a hosted environment or a private offering. One Vault Voice and Messenger will be showcased to security professionals at RSA Conference 2011, held at Moscone Center in San Francisco February 14 - 17, 2011.
