There is a growing need among the world’s defense agencies for secure collaboration tools to enable communications and the sharing of data, documents, images, and real-time video within and among organizations. These organizations often are operating in far-flung, harsh and hostile environments, and must put a premium on the simplicity and reliability of a common platform.
Polycom is helping to meet this need by leveraging the convenience and functionality of the Microsoft Lync unified communications platform. The collaboration and communications company offers rugged video and voice communications solutions for the military, and partners with companies such as CIS Secure Computing to provide the additional security that their customers require.
Polycom is showcasing some of these solutions optimized for the Lync platform and hardened for the defense environment at the International Defense Exhibition and Conference (IDEX) being held in Abu Dhabi, Feb. 22-26.
