General Dynamics C4 Systems 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.
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.
“Operating on commercial cell phone networks and in cyberspace on the same device is becoming increasingly hazardous, particularly if you are sharing sensitive information,” said Chris Marzilli, president of General Dynamics C4 Systems. “Combining General Dynamics’ expertise in cyber security with Samsung’s commercial products creates a new, extremely cost-effective selection of secure mobile devices.”
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 Defense, Department of Homeland Security, federal agencies and coalition partners.
The Samsung SAFE devices with defence-grade security will join General Dynamics C4 Systems’ growing line of commercial broadband solutions and networking products.
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).
