The Defense Department last week approved Dell‘s version of Android 2.2 to access the department’s networks, and has now taken another step towards allowing employees to bring mobile devices into the workplace.

Mobile software firm Good Technology announced Wednesday that the Defense Information Systems Agency has approved the company’s “Secure Android” software for mobile management, with DISA previously approving the software for use on Dell Streak 5 tablets.

Dell and Good Technology worked together to improve Android’s security framework and deploy it on Streak 5 tablets, Good Technology said.

“At Dell, we believe that what’s behind the device is what truly matters – especially for government customers, and with the help of Good Technology, we’re now able to bring a solution powered by the flexible Android operating system,” said Ian Haynes, client and mobility brand manager at Dell Federal.
