The Defense Information Systems Agency has released a Security Technical Implementation Guide for the latest version of VMware’s enterprise mobility management platform.
DISA’s STIG for VMware AirWatch 9.X seeks to provide cybersecurity policies and guide agencies on how to install the platform for use on Defense Department-run networks, the company said Thursday.
Bill Rowan, vice president of federal sales at VMware, said the STIG document aims to validate that VMware AirWatch complies with security standards required for deployment of enterprise mobility management tools.
DISA also issued a STIG for VMware’s AirWatch 6.5 in 2014.
VMware also secured an authority-to-operate designation for the AirWatch platform from the U.S. Census Bureau under the Federal Risk and Authorization Management Program.
VMware AirWatch works to help users access enterprise applications, secure data and manage endpoint devices through a single console.
