Implementing New Hardware-Based Information Security Capabilities

The DIA enterprise faces different challenges in supporting local, branch, and remote users as they perform their assignments and work. Back-end infrastructure, data center consolidation, application development and implementation, data security, and access controls are but some of the moving parts to the ever-developing enterprise. In addition, several common elements make up the enterprise architecture: servers and storage, desktop device, operating systems, LAN and WAN network components, security, identity, encryption, key management, user profile management, and Enterprise Management System(s) monitoring these components. Currently, with each new mission, DIA requirements dictate a static network architecture in which the applications, operating system, security policies, as well as user profile and access control are all disparately managed.
