tablet-soldier-c4isrThe U.S. Army has started to use new software designed to evaluate mobile applications in an effort to ensure that such apps meet government security standards and other requirements, the Army reported Friday.

“With this new vetting software, we can expedite getting proponent-approved and cyber-secure mobile apps to the force,” said Lt. Col. Joe Harris, Army Training and Doctrine Command Capability Manager-Mobile.

Mike Casey writes the service branch’s TCM-Mobile unit has adopted the software to screen approximately 80 mobile apps intended for gunnery practice and infantry training, among other topics.

Harris said TCM-Mobile aims to assess, approve and deploy at least 200 mobile apps to soldiers by the end of 2017.
