Zebra Offers Broadest Portfolio of U.S. Dept. of Defense STIG Validated Rugged Devices

Security Technical Implementation Guide (STIG) validation allows all U.S. military branches to deploy Zebra Android™ 10 mobile devices on Department of Defense networks

LINCOLNSHIRE, Ill. – June 23, 2021 – Zebra Technologies Corporation (NASDAQ: ZBRA), an innovator at the front line of business with solutions and partners that deliver a performance edge, today announced that it has received STIG validation from the Defense Information Systems Agency (DISA). This validation allows U.S. military agencies to purchase and deploy 28 different Zebra Android™ 10-based mobile devices on U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) network systems, all of which are now listed on the Department of Defense Information Network’s (DoDIN) Approved Products List.

STIG validation is a security review and configuration standard that helps ensure IT products and military agencies are complying with DoD security policies. It also reinforces Zebra’s dedication to information security. Zebra’s portfolio of Android 10 mobile devices previously received the internationally recognized Common Criteria certification used to evaluate the security properties of IT products.

Devices considered for Common Criteria certification must have achieved FIPS 140-2 validation and undergo rigorous testing through an independently licensed lab. The results are evaluated and verified by the National information Assurance Partnership (NIAP). Devices considered for STIG validation are evaluated by DISA to ensure Zebra’s Android 10-based mobile devices meet the high level of security required to connect to DoD networks.

“Zebra offers the largest portfolio of DISA-approved, enterprise-grade mobile devices on the market, supporting a wide array of U.S. military and civilian operations,” said Joe White, Senior Vice President and General Manager, Enterprise Mobile Computing, Zebra Technologies. “The public sector is one of Zebra’s fastest growing markets, and these security validations demonstrate our commitment to providing secure mobility solutions to our customers.”

Zebra’s Android-based mobile devices are built on its Mobility DNA software platform, offering government customers enterprise-level capabilities such as enhanced security, real-time application management and visibility as well as easier integration and enhanced productivity tools.


  • Zebra has received STIG validation from DISA – providing U.S. military agencies the broadest portfolio of enterprise-grade Android 10-based mobile devices on the DoDIN Approved Products List.
  • The STIG validation and Common Criteria certification reinforces Zebra’s commitment to providing secure mobile solutions.
  • Zebra’s Mobility DNA platform transforms Android into an enterprise-ready operating system that allows businesses and government entities to maximize the return on investment of their Zebra mobile devices by increasing productivity, simplifying management, and strengthening security.
