Posted May 30, 2018 11:06:23With more than 5 million active duty members, the Australian Armed Forces is one of the largest and most diverse in the world, and one of its largest contractors.
As such, the organisation has had to adapt to a changing industry in which the growth of social media and the ease of online commerce means it needs to adapt quickly to adapt its systems to a new business environment.
One of the biggest issues for the army is how to manage a large and complex network of thousands of people.
While a military email system can be used for several different tasks, it is most commonly used to send and receive emails, which are usually addressed to people in different locations and in different email addresses.
A key problem is how the Army is going to manage this vast and complex system, which is expected to reach more than 1 billion users within the next two years.
To that end, the Defence Department is now looking at using a new, more secure and streamlined email login.
This will enable the army to focus on the task at hand, with only the most important emails coming from one or two addresses, rather than the vast number of addresses used by military email accounts.
The service is using the new login to manage the emails of hundreds of thousands, with a focus on ensuring email accounts are secure, as well as making sure the Army can track the recipients of its messages.
The department’s digital security officer, Peter Lewis, said the service would use a password-protected email account to manage all emails sent or received by the organisation.
“The aim is to keep the Army’s communication on a secure and high-performing footing,” Mr Lewis said.
“It will also allow us to monitor and manage the Army account to ensure it is in a good state.”
The service also wants to automate the process of transferring email addresses between email accounts, so it can move messages between accounts without requiring additional staff to maintain contact.
While the army already uses a password for all email accounts and passwords for some services, Mr Lewis would like to see the service adopt a system similar to the Microsoft Outlook email account, which allows the organisation to use a single password for multiple email accounts with no need to have multiple accounts.
“We’re seeing that many of our businesses are looking to be able to access their data on multiple email services,” Mr Llewellyn said.
