ROME, N.Y. – The SecureView Program Office based out of the Air Force Research Laboratory's (AFRL) Information Directorate is working directly with other government programs to provide remote operators with secure access to classified networks through a Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) technology, an approved Commercial Solutions for Classified (CSfC) hardware stack and SecureView-enabled laptops.

The expedited fielding of SecureView’s VDI CSfC is one of the Department of the Air Force’s Advanced Battle Management System (ABMS) lines of effort, dubbed deviceONE, that is intended to enable seamless operations in a disaggregated, mobile posture at the right classification levels – designed for the warfighter to achieve all-domain operations.

While the public practices social distancing as a precautionary measure to control the spread of the virus, work-from-home orders have displaced hundreds of thousands of civilians, contractors, and active-duty military personnel from connected and outfitted facilities.

SecureView is the DoD standard cross-domain system that provides access to networks of different classifications, all from the same physical computing device, thus breaking down information sharing silos and providing access to data.
