The Tactical Edge is commonly defined as the platforms, sites, and personnel operating in an environment characterized by:
- a dependence on information systems and connectivity,
- threats to the operational readiness of both information systems and connectivity, and
- users dependent on the availability, integrity, and transparency of their information systems.
Users at the Tactical Edge often operate in the field and away from the friendly confines of their home facility. While away from their base of operations, these users must still execute the tasks associated with their mission by communicating with all stakeholders involved. Connecting to secure networks and having fully functional secure collaboration capabilities are key to their success. As a technology innovator, CIS Secure leads the way in support of these users by transforming networking and communications equipment from office-based devices into portable kits that can be deployed in the field.
The ability to extend the functionality of these critical functions into simple, intuitive kits that can be transported anywhere – enables users to follow existing workflows and leverage established user training outside of the office.
CIS Secure’s understanding of mission requirements allows us to seamlessly extend office capabilities into the field by changing the form factor of commonly-used components that can then be leveraged – wherever, whenever.
