For the Army, using Android smartphones
now would be the equivalent of driving a soft-skinned Humvee through the mountains of Afghanistan. That’s why the Pentagon wants to strengthen its soldiers’ mobile devices security with a program called “Mobile Armour,” which will protect against cyber-threats like enemy breaches, virus infections, spear-phishing attempts or malicious apps. It’s the new step in the Army’s star-crossed two-decade-long quest
to provide its soldiers with better tools to communicate in the battlefield.
