The Defense Department has opened a regional center in Stuttgart, Germany, for its joint information network intended to expand the U.S. Armed Forceâs access to information, FedScoop reported Monday.
Cory Bennett writes the enterprise operations center will work to manage the U.S. European Commandâs and the U.S. Africa Commandâs access to the joint information environment from various devices.
The Defense Information Systems Agency said the EOC will aim to bolster the information networkâs security, resilience and response capability, according to the report.
Air Force Lt. Gen. Ronnie Hawkins Jr., director of DISA, told the publication the operations center is intended to help the DoD protect its information network over the coming years.
Citing DISAâs release, Bennett reports the Defense Department intends for the EOC to enable combatant commanders to view JIEâs global operations and cyber defense through a centralized platform.
