General Dynamics C4 Systems has established a strategic partnership with Samsung to incorporate its GD Protected technology into Samsung GALAXY devices that run the Samsung KNOX, General Dynamics said Feb. 25.
Samsung KNOX is an end-to-end secure platform that furnishes security hardening from the hardware to the application layer. GD Protected can furnish security for commercial smart phones, tablets and applications, including the data stored on mobile devices, General Dynamics said.
Public-sector customers that buy the new Samsung KNOX enabled devices also can purchase the GD Protected technology, enabling mobile workers to access the Internet and enterprise networks using a secure, commercial off-the-shelf Samsung device, General Dynamics said.
The GD Protected technology for Samsung KNOX-enabled devices, which will be available in the second quarter 2013, is designed to provide security for the public sector that can be trusted at the highest levels, said General Dynamics.
