Defense Information Systems Agency officials recently detailed the agency’s plans to develop a mobile strategy in the coming months, FierceGovernment IT reports.
DISA plans to establish a policy allowing personnel to use their own device to connect to unclassified networks by fall 2013 at the earliest.
In the interim, the agency is planning structured testing to determine whether it should use centralized or decentralized management methods to control mobile devices, according to Fierce.
The agency’s strategy is not exactly bring your own device, Fierce’s Molly Bernhart Walker reported.
DISA plans to test certified mobile applications with certified devices in order to launch an app store for classified and unclassified network users before August 2013, Walker reported.
