NSA's Troy Lange details NSA mobile security strategyDate: Feb 28, 2013
SAN FRANCISCO -- When it comes to enterprise mobile security, the National Security Agency is perhaps the most unyielding environment on the planet. However, like many enterprises, in the process of developing a secure mobile ecosystem, it's had its share of both successes and failures along the way.
In this video, recorded at the 2013 RSA Conference, NSA mobility mission manager Troy Lange discusses the NSA's mobile security program. Lange discusses how to balance the NSA's risk-averse culture with the growing demand for mobile computing. He also talks about the NSA's experiences building its own mobile device and why it was rejected by users, why the organization changed course with its "trust engineering" strategy, what was revealed in its recent mobile device pilot using a commercial version of Android, and how it hopes to improve the user experience for mobile users in the future.
