MISSION PARTNER ENVIRONMENTS

Enhanced Interoperability with Allies Across Networks

Today, our national security is intrinsically tied to our ability to effectively partner with our allies. Mission Partner Environments (MPEs) allow the military and its partners to communicate, collaborate and to share sensitive, classified information securely and in real-time. And as technology continues to rapidly evolve, building and maintaining MPEs is both more complex and more important than ever.

That’s why GDIT is envisioning and developing next-generation MPE. We are leveraging our decades of support for these essential environments to build robust and secure MPEs that make vital data and information seamlessly available to warfighters, enabling them to sense, make sense, and act at the speed of operations.

JADC2

The Joint All-Domain Command and Control (JADC2) goal is to empower Joint Force Commanders to effectively command across all warfighting domains by using innovative technologies that enable faster decision-making. MPEs make clear contributions to that goal. Without question, the MPE and JADC2 initiatives are vitally important DoD efforts focused on fostering collaboration and communication. GDIT is proud to do our part to support these initiatives via our MPE work and are committed to its continued success.

Data Centricity

We believe the future of the MPE is data-centric, providing maximum interoperability and flexibility to the warfighter and to coalition partners. With this data-minded approach we develop environments with the ability to federate and control access to data based on identity, regardless of location or enclave. By leveraging advancements in coalition interoperability and information-sharing, we envision a future where the MPE becomes the warfighting network.

Zero Trust

Zero Trust enables data-centric capabilities at the edge. For MPEs, this means we can incorporate legacy, non-data aware applications during transitions – because zero trust provides the warfighter with the most possible mobility in the most secure way. GDIT regularly examines best practices for zero trust within MPEs. Our team has expertise across every facet of zero trust – from users and devices to networks, environments, applications, and workloads, and from data and analytics to automation and orchestration.

Identity, Credentialing & Access Management

MPEs must federate with other systems with similar capabilities by using interoperable Identity, Credentialing & Access Management (ICAM) systems while preserving the control each partner has over its users. This enables internal decisions to be made based on trusted, remote sources with the most up-to-date credential information, but securely controlled in a decentralized manner. An ICAM-enabled, data centric approach is the most viable way to achieve the seamless capability the warfighter needs.

Proven Solutions

GDIT enables secure information sharing globally through a number of policy-based, access control systems that rely on data tagging and federated identities. GDIT is currently deploying and operating these systems for our warfighters today and developing new solutions for tomorrow.
