DISA Rolls Out milDrive Digital Storage Solution
The military IT agency’s cloud-based personal file storage service will give warfighters more flexibility, officials say.
The Defense Information Systems Agency, known as DISA, has unveiled a new data solution for military users that will increase the reliability and availability of data and information, it claims. Through milDrive, users can access information, manipulate files and folders, either online or offline.
After working with information or files offline, and when users regain network access, milDrive will automatically synchronize the data, said Carissa Landymore, DISA’s cloud storage program manager. “[As] a personal file storage service, milDrive [will] really ensure warfighters have continuous, reliable access to files without regard to device or location,” Landymore said.
According to the agency, milDrive works with Android and iOS systems, with access to files through a mobile device, web browser or desktop application. Licensed users with Common Access Cards (CACs) or Personal Identity Verification (PIV) credentials can access files on the Non-classified Internet Protocol Router Network (NIPRNet) and can share access-controlled, unclassified information files and documents from any device.
DISA began offering milDrive on March 1. Any interested users should contact the DISA Mission Partner Engagement Office for pricing information or contact the program management office for additional information, DISA reported.
