The Defense Information Systems Agency has completed its testing of devices running Samsung’s Knox enterprise system and is signing off on the system for official government use. The approval allows those working within the Department of Defense network to use Samsung Galaxy smartphones and tablets.
The clearance means that Samsung’s devices meet one of the highest security standards for mobile devices. President JK Shin believes that the approval of Samsung Knox by the US government will make the enterprise solution more appealing to “highly regulated industries such as health care and financial services.”
For now, the Galaxy S4 is the only device to feature Knox, but Samsung has plans to include it in future “premium” smartphone and tablet releases.
