The U.S. Army plans to implement enterprise-as-a-service as the initial step towards network modernization, with possible partnerships with the U.S. Air Force and the U.S. Navy, FCW reported Friday.
Col. Jeth Rey, director of operations at the Army's Cyber Command, said at an Armed Forces Communications and Electronics Association event that the branch's new network approach will involve more contractor services.
"We're exploring the possibility of contractor-owned, contractor-operated, [on a] government-owned site," he said.
He added that the Army will make further announcements regarding the new enterprise services approach in March. The branch is also continuing its Joint Regional Security Stacks program that leverages a wide set of assets to protect information, Rey said.
