It is true what they say that the Apple products appear to be very well built but it seems it is more than that. Pentagon has plans to get the mobile devices up and running on the sophisticated military networks and that in a relative short amount of time.
It is not the first time we see the military interested in acquiring the Apple products for use in advanced applications. The devices have been taken through the most rigorous endurance tests and came out with flying colors. The Security Technical Implementation Guides (STIGs) for other devices such as the BlackBerry 10 smartphones and Playbook tablets, along with Samsung’s Knox Android phone, have already been released.
“We expect to release the iOS STIG sometime in the next two weeks,” Air Force Lt. Col. Damien Pickart, a Pentagon spokesman, told Wired. The Army is still looking for even more advanced ways to secure data on iOS devices. In the meantime the other Apple products, such as MacBooks still don’t seem appealing for military grade implementations.
