The U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) has initiated a major agreement for Netscape client and server software. This agreement involves multiyear options, resulting in a DoD-wide license covering in excess of 2 million users. Specifically, DoD has licensed Netscape® client and Netscape server software to enhance the security capabilities across the DoD worldwide networks. Netscape software will be used to support comprehensive and cost-effective Intranet, Internet and Extranet solutions that enable DoD organizations to communicate, access and share information easily.
With the execution of
the new agreement, DISA will serve as the central point for assigning
Netscape software licenses provided under this agreement throughout the DoD.
DoD organizations should contact DISA's DII Enterprise Licensing
Program Office in DISA JIEO
to discuss the terms of this agreement.
