SBA's working capital modernization

The Small Business Administrations stands out as one of the few agencies using a working capital fund under the Modernizing Government Technology Act to propel its modernization efforts.

Considering SBA’s annual total IT budget of $28 million, “it was a decent-sized chunk,” Cavallo said of the money in the fund. In addition to driving new technology, Cavallo hopes the fund will help break the agency out of the end-of-year, use-it-or-lose-it blitz to buy IT hardware by giving it an option to save any leftover IT money. Billy Mitchell has the story.

Zscaler brings zero trust to the Pentagon

The Defense Innovation Unit sealed a deal with Zscaler to pilot a secure cloud management solution that may eventually provide zero-trust access to about 500,000 concurrent Pentagon users. The prototype will allow DIU users to directly access the internet and software-as-a-service (SaaS) applications in Amazon Web Services, Google Cloud and Microsoft Azure while they are operating off-network, regardless of their location or device.
