mobile securityKim Rice, mobility portfolio manager at the Defense Information Systems Agency, has said that a Defense Department service for users to access classified information and voice data has entered the operational phase.

DoD collaborated with DISA and the National Security Agency to deploy the Defense Mobile Classified Capability – Secret version 2.0.5 platform as a replacement for the Secure Mobile Environment Portable Electronic Device system, DISA said Wednesday.

DMCC-S has mobile device management, failover and call interoperability functions, according to DISA.

DMCC-S “brings us one step closer to the Joint Information Environment vision, where our warfighters and national level leaders can access a secure infrastructure and applications from any device, anytime, anywhere,” Rice said.

DISA said it will cease operations of SME-PED platform on July 30 and hopes to have 3,000 DMCC-S users by the second half of fiscal year 2016.
