NASA IT Projects Hone On Remote Workers, Personal Devices; Sasi Pillay Comments

SecurityLockNASA division is overseeing nearly 20 projects intended to address the agency’s information technology issues such as infrastructure collaboration, remote access and personal device use at work, Fedscoop reported Tuesday.

Scott Maucione writes NASA’s IT Labs outlined the existing and upcoming programs in the 2012-2013 annual report as part of the division’s aim to resolve the space agency’s IT concerns.

“This past year, IT Labs has gained more notoriety within NASA resulting in a larger review panel and more project submissions in the annual project call,” Sasi Pillay, chief technology officer for IT at NASA, said in the report obtained by Fedscoop.

FedScoop reports the projects include a study on remote access to applications, including how to use the Thursby PKard reader to verify a person’s identity.
