Amber Corrin writes the DoD plans to incorporate the Defense Information Systems Agency’s mobile device management program into the mobility ecosystem.

Mark Orndorff, DISA program executive officer for information assurance and network operations, told the publication that transition of the defense enterprise to the mobility environment is ongoing, including the mobile device integration of identity authentication systems.

Orndorff added that the ecosystem is meant to develop technologies, features and control points that DISA would leverage to deploy services and facilitate information sharing programs, according to the report.

Corrin writes DoD will also integrate communications infrastructure, management control systems, app store, device security configuration, certificate credentials and network security data into the mobility ecosystem.
