Army gets OK for $175M network overhaul

Congress has signed off on a plan for the Army to spend $175 million to restructure the way it secures its computer networks.

According to a FederalNewsRadio report, the Army will move network security to 11 regional centers in the United States and four in the U.S. Central Command and Europe.

Currently, networks are secured at the local level at each individual post, camp and station.

The change will bring more visibility into the networks for the U.S. Cyber Command, Army Cyber Command and other military service cyber components.
