Judging from the Defense authorization bills that have passed the House and been marked up in the Senate, Congress seems to have made a hash out of Pentagon plans to meet its budgetary goals. Todd Harrison is a senior fellow at the Center for Strategic and Budgetary Assessments. He joined Tom Temin and Emily Kopp on the Federal Drive to help sort out the reality of where Defense spending is headed and who will benefit.

Alan Dabbiere, Chairman, Airwatch by VMware

When it comes to adopting mobile computing, the Defense Department moves about as fast as a Sherman tank in the mud. It wants to get things just right so mobile devices don't compromise network security. One hurdle for software vendors is the Security Technical Implementation Guide, or STIG. Without it, their stuff can't be used on DoD networks. Airwatch makes mobile device management software, and it just received STIG certification. Founder Alan Dabbiere joins the Federal Drive with Tom Temin and Emily Kopp to explain how the process works.
