SolarWinds’ Joel Dolisy: Army Network Upgrade Needs Integrated Operations, Security Teams

Joel Dolisy, chief information and technology officer at SolarWinds, has suggested the U.S. Army’s network modernization effort needs integration between operations and security teams going forward.

Dolisy wrote in an opinion piece for Defense Systems that cybersecurity and operations personnel would be able to respond to threats and other network issues by sharing common intelligence.

The Army network campaign plan initiated by Army CIO Lt. Gen. Robert Ferrell in early 2015 describes the service’s approach to cloud transition and how the Army intends to further the Network 2020 goal, Dolisy notes.

Dolisy says the Army seeks to align its network with the Joint Information Environment of the Defense Information Systems Agency and the Defense Department’s modernization plans, as well as streamline operations.

“Defense agencies literally can no longer afford to purchase separate solutions for security and operations teams,” he writes.

“Today, they need a single solution with dual use that can handle both operational and security requirements,” Dolisy adds.
