mobile device managementThe Energy Department is working to secure its research data hub in a private cloud computing platform, GCN reported Monday.

Rutrell Yasin writes the agency intends to use the hub to provide information to its workforce and researchers within and outside its headquarters.

Rob Bectel, chief technology officer and senior policy advisor with the DOE’s office of energy efficiency and renewable energy, told a conference in Washington that DOE wants to “provide bring-your-own-device environments.”

GCN reports that among other agencies, the Federal Communications Commission is testing a virtual desktop infrastructure within its Washington-based headquarters for organizations to deliver desktop applications to mobile devices through secure connections or cloud infrastructures.

Yasin writes the Department of Homeland Security’s research arm is exploring technologies to secure data stored in mobile devices.
