Apple has been gaining traction in the federal government. The Defense Department in October said it plans to open its network for the first time to iPhones, as well as devices running Google Inc.’s Android operating system.
CACI International Inc.
has altered “thousands” of Apple Inc. iPads so they can be used securely by the U.S. government, according to Dan Allen
, CACI’s chief executive officer.
IPad adopters within the government include President Barack Obama
, who has said he uses one to watch National Basketball Association games.
