The Defense Department has released a new mobile device strategy to address increasing demand of the devices and security of the devices, Reuters reports.
Pentagon Chief Information Officer Teri Takai said that the new strategy will focus on information sharing and collaboration across the military branches and other defense agencies, according to Andrea Shalal-Esa’s report.
The strategy aims to keep the department’s workforce relevant in an era where information and cyberspace are critical to mission success, Takai said.
Several mobility pilot programs and other initiatives are already underway across the department and the military services, Shalal-Esa reported.
The Defense Information Systems Agency approved Dell‘s version of Android 2.2 in December 2011 for access to the Pentagon’s networks.
