Zebra Secures STIG Validation from DISA
June 24, 2021
Technologies has received STIG validation from the Defense Information Systems
Agency (DISA). This validation allows U.S. military agencies to purchase and
deploy 28 different Zebra Android 10-based mobile devices on U.S. Department of
Defense (DoD) network systems, all of which are now listed on the Department of
Defense Information Network’s (DoDIN) Approved Products List.
STIG validation is a security review and configuration standard that helps
ensure IT products and military agencies are complying with DoD security
policies. It also reinforces Zebra’s dedication to information security. Zebra’s
portfolio of Android 10 mobile devices previously received the internationally
recognized Common Criteria certification used to evaluate the security
properties of IT products.
Devices considered for Common Criteria certification must have achieved FIPS
140-2 validation and undergo rigorous testing through an independently licensed
lab. The results are evaluated and verified by the National information
Assurance Partnership (NIAP). Devices considered for STIG validation are
evaluated by DISA to ensure Zebra’s Android 10-based mobile devices meet the
high level of security required to connect to DoD networks.
“Zebra offers the largest portfolio of DISA-approved, enterprise-grade mobile
devices on the market, supporting a wide array of U.S. military and civilian
operations,” said Joe White, Senior Vice President and General Manager,
Enterprise Mobile Computing, Zebra Technologies. “The public sector is one of
Zebra’s fastest growing markets, and these security validations demonstrate our
commitment to providing secure mobility solutions to our customers.”
Zebra’s Android-based mobile devices are built on its Mobility DNA software
platform, offering government customers enterprise-level capabilities such as
enhanced security, real-time application management and visibility as well as
easier integration and enhanced productivity tools.
