General Dynamics, Samsung team for secure comms
General Dynamics C4 Systems has announced that it will integrate its defence-grade cyber and information security technologies into the family of Samsung Approved for Enterprise (SAFE) smartphones and tablet computers. The company made the announcement 23 May, 2012.
According to General Dynamics C4 Systems, these SAFE devices will also be upgraded with the new Samsung Secure Android platform and are designed to deliver ‘a cost-effective commercial solution for customers ranging from the military and government agencies, to law enforcement and public safety, to financial, utility and other industry personnel who need to browse the public Internet as well as access secure networks.’
The secure technologies that General Dynamics will integrate into the Samsung products are similar to those trusted to protect information classified from the Secret level and below for the US Department of Defence, Department of Homeland Security, federal agencies and coalition partners. The enhanced Samsung products should be available by mid-2013 and will be sold by General Dynamics and through government contract vehicles such as the General Services Administration (GSA).
In addition to enhanced security provided by General Dynamics, SAFE smartphones and tablets provide organisations with ‘a holistic enterprise mobility solution that ensures IT compliance and serves as a resource for enterprises needing a simple, yet comprehensive strategy for deploying Android devices into their networks.’
The Samsung SAFE devices with defence-grade security will join General Dynamics C4 Systems' growing line of commercial broadband solutions and networking products.
