.govCAR Looks at Mobile Infrastructure to Improve Cybersecurity Posture

The Department of Homeland Security’s (DHS) .gov Cybersecurity Architecture Review program (.govCAR) has been looking at its mobile environment for capabilities and cybersecurity posture.

The program has “a lot of different tools” that can be deployed to its mobile infrastructure with “very little work to analyze” in to how connected systems are to the world.

Speaking at MeriTalk’s CDM Central event today, .govCAR Evangelist from DHS’ Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) Branko Bokan said that an analysis of mobile infrastructure found an answer to what agencies need to do to protect mobile infrastructures.

“The results in the findings came out came down to Enterprise Mobility Management, Mobile Application Vetting, and Mobile Threat Detection,” Bokan said. “Three capabilities, deployed together, connected, interconnected, being able to work together—they can be from different vendors, independent vendors—but as long as they can talk to each other these three technologies, as long as they’re there deployed together and can talk to each other and can inform each other, we can maximize our coverage against threats.”

Bokan added that although these three capabilities won’t make a network for any agency entirely secure, they will greatly improve a network’s cybersecurity posture.
