Kim Rice, portfolio manager for the Defense Department mobility program office in the Defense Information Systems Agency, has said DISA should consider interoperability when it comes to the deployment of mobile devices that use the DOD Mobile Classified Capability-Secret service.
Rice made the remarks at the Advanced Technology Academic Research Center Federal Mobile Computing Summit held April 6 in Washington D.C., DISA said Thursday.
DMCC-S is a mobile enterprise service designed to provide users classified access to the Secret Internet Protocol Router Network.
“Making sure products and devices are interoperable is critical in today’s world of global engagement, and having that capability already built in is key,” she said.
Rice also noted that in consideration of interoperability requirements, DISA needs to identify management systems and business models when seeking support from coalition partners.
