Lt. Gen. Alan Lynn, director of the Defense Information Systems Agency, has outlined the future requirements needed to help protect the Defense Department’s cyber infrastructure, Signal Magazine reported Tuesday.

Sandra Jontz writes Lynn told an AFCEA D.C. Chapter event that the department’s cyber infrastructure in the future will call for software-defined networking, virtual desktop and commercial cloud.

He also called on industry to assist the DoD in protecting its network, according to the report.

“We absolutely need industry with us, otherwise we can’t function,” Lynn told attendees.

Officials behind the planned FirstNet national public safety radio network have tapped DISA to develop a contract proposal and plan to release the final request for proposals in 2016, according to FCW.
