Over the past years, there have been leaping advancements made in the field of technology and mobile phones. While many reports have been hinting at the growing tension and popularity between the U.S. and China, the U.S. government agencies have undertaken huge steps in the field of mobile phones. These agencies have approved five Samsung Smartphones and tablet PCs for use based on unclassified defense networks, said the Chosunilbo.
This only means the U.S. defense authorities are permitted to use Samsung’s high-end mobile devices within the federal facilities. As per the data in the report, Samsung has confirmed that the U.S. Defense Information Systems Agency have approved a range of phones including Galaxy S4, Galaxy S4 Active and Galaxy Note 3 along with a number of tablets such as the 2014 edition of the Galaxy Note 10.1 and Galaxy Note Pro 12.2. All of these devices run on Samsung’s Knox OS.
Nevertheless, these devices that have been approved for usage necessarily need to meet around 100 criteria that enable safety in the phones in terms of hacking or other kinds of cyber attacks.
Samsung has plans of expanding its devices range that are widely being used by the U.S. government’s federal systems and corporate users.
The DISA is in charge of authorizing the use of devices within the federal facilities. DISA is a combat support agency that connects the government and military organizations through IT and communication networks.
