HTC One becomes the first HTCpro certified smartphone in US for businesses

HTC One rocks 2

There’s a lot to love about the HTC One and if its rock solid build quality wasn’t enough, how about rock solid security? HTC has announced that the HTC One is now officially the first smartphone in the US to gain the illustrious title of becoming HTCpro certified. This gives business and IT professionals the peace of mind in knowing that the HTC One is enterprise-ready, meeting the Federal Information Processing Standard 140-2 certification, offering 256-bit encryption, and level-one government-grade security.

Devices can be locked down to prevent specific functions and all data is secured though VPN functionality with HTC promising Mocana’s multihead Internet Protocol Security VPN support in the future.

    i think its funny how sammy included a security feature in there announcement of the S4, but the htc one, is the first in the U.S. to be certified

  • toomuchgame441

    Damn HTC One had like a thousand articles on this site today lol… It’s truly a beast

    • No_Nickname90

      Someone will be here shortly to say that it doesn’t have an external SD so it can’t be the greatest.

        it doesn’t have an external SD so it can’t be the greatest.

        • DavidVarghese

          Leave the trolling to the professionals kid.

          • simpleas

            lol,I just thought it was funny. And if you think speaking the truth is trolling, im trollin. Seirously, what kind of company creates their own certification and then gives it to themselves. they are desperate. clear as day from all the halfassed marketing jobs that no one really cares about. If they’d stop being a stubborn lil bisquit. and give customers what they want, they wont’ be going under like a dork. Sick of companies that don’t listen to their customers. Please leave HTC and never comeback. Samsung needs better competition. HTC ONE for No ONE

        The button layout is fucked.

        That is literally the only reason stopping me from getting the phone. I might cave though.

        • PhoenixPath

          Planning on staying stock, or not?

          If not, they’ve addresses some of the issue with non-stock kernels (logo2menu, etc…)

            Yeah, I was looking into that. I’m waiting to see what sort of devices Motorola is going to launch this year as well. There have been a couple of leaks so far so it shouldn’t be too long before they hold an event.

            If Motorola fails to impress me, then the One it is.

        • delahaya

          the button sensitivity issue is now fixed. layout? guess that is fixed

          • delahaya

            meant layout is not fixed

  • androidscales

    one issue with it gets real hot when ur using it

    • Psylocke0834

      The first time I turned it on after I bought was the only time it got hot. After that, it has stayed cool around 65° average.

      • Sean Royce

        65° Celsius ;)

      Am I the only one who had a grammatical aneurysm reading nicedudex26′s post ? Sorry to be a grammar nerd, but wow !

    • Sterling Mace

      You havin a stroke?

      • RobertArias

        Lol

    So if you create your own certification and then give it to yourself, it’s headline news? Not that the one isn’t a fine device, but I don’t think enterprise customers are likely to fall for this sort of scheme. Especially if you use your own name in the name of the certification. It comes off as desperate, insincere and out of touch.

      Well “HTCpro” is their own cert, so I agree with you there, but that seems to mean it’s “FIPS 140-2″ which is a real gov. standard too.

    • Jeffrey Evans

      Completely agree. And how does Samsung’s Knox stack up to HTC’s security protocols? The Pentagon just approved Samsung for their use due to it’s own security levels in Knox.

    Restricting saving info locally is better security anyway.
    Make data available through cloud storage. But then security depends on how secure that is.

  • RobertArias

    They could install “Mission Impossible” protocol on it for optimum security. It could self destruct in five seconds after receiving a top secret text message and then disavow it’s owner if found. Lol

    I have it too.. great smartphone. I just need to update the software to 4.2.2 (nou I have 4.2.1 on it)
