Alexandria, VA, March 29, 2017 --(PR.com
)-- Mobile security is a high priority for the government and military. As the number of mobile devices grows exponentially, their usefulness to these entities does as well. The challenge is not acquiring these devices, it is making sure that they are secure. While having access to important information at any given time is immeasurably valuable, this information may be sensitive or classified. The challenge is clear: ensuring agility in the federal and military enterprise while protecting devices.
There has been a response from both government and industry. Devices are becoming more secure and the government is developing policies and methods for protecting sensitive information. The solutions to this problem use both new technologies and adapting legacy systems. While some progress has been made, there are still questions to be answered. Industry will have a large role in providing Mobile Device Management (MDM), software, and secure devices that will meet the high security standards that are being set by government agencies and the military.
This whole-of-Government Mobile Security event brings together DoD, DHS, and Federal Agencies.
