Stephen Rodriguez: Security, Scalability Requirements to Spur Gov’t Mobile Investment

mobile device managementStephen Rodriguez, managing partner at Coldon Strategic Advisors, believes federal agencies will continue to leverage mobile communications technology as a way to impove operational efficiency, he writes in an opinion piece for InformationWeek.

Rodriguez says government organizations need mobile applications that can meet their security and scalability requirements, as well as the need of their growing mobile workforce.

He observed that nowadays, employees provide organizations greater input when it comes to deploying mobile devices and software across the workforce.

On the security front, agencies use AES-256 encryption algorithms in order to limit staff’s information transfer outside a government-operated network, according to Rodriguez.

“A centralized, streamlined solution could go a long way towards alleviating the security risks of rogue technology deployments,” he stated.

He believes an ideal mobile communications platform for government users has a scalable  architecture and can offer managers visibility into important correspondence.

He added that agencies “demand multifaceted communications capabilities, from messaging to talk to content sharing, compatibility across chosen devices and mobile and web platforms, trusted security, accountability, and scalability.”
