DISA issues new guidance for secure, enterprise mobility

The Defense Information Systems Agency (DISA) has approved the Security Technical Implementation Guides (STIG) for Blackberry and Samsung Knox devices, which means that DOD organizations will be able to use those devices in conjunction with a secure enterprise mobility environment.

The release of DISA's Samsung Knox STIG, May 2, provisionally allows the DOD to use the latest technology as soon as it is available commercially. STIGs for the currently available Blackberry 10, Blackberry Playbook, and Blackberry Device Service were also issued. The STIGs allow use of accepted devices as part of approved mobility pilots with actively defended Mobile Device Management (MDM) systems.
