The Defense Information Systems Agency has kicked off work to transition network users into a set of joint regional security stacks in an effort to centralize the military’s network operations, SIGNAL Magazine reported Tuesday.
Sandra Jontz writes DISA will begin the move by migrating its San Antonio, Texas-based network to the JRSS from the agency’s legacy information and security infrastructure.
“This is going to set the precedent for how we are going to do our migrations for the JRSSs that are already physically installed in [the United States] and Europe, and what will be installed in [Southwest Asia],” Danielle Metz, JRSS program manager, told the magazine.
The Defense Department also plans to deploy the integrated network across 15 locations under the Joint Information Environment program, according to the report.
Lockheed Martin developed the JRSS setup under the 2012 Global Systems Management Operations data network modernization project with DISA, the magazine reports.
Angela Heise, vice president of enterprise IT solutions at Lockheed, told SIGNAL that the company will also provide its own network protection technology for JRSS.
