mobile securityThe National Security Agency has cleared Samsung Galaxy handsets that run a mobile security technology for government use in managing classified information.

Knox-equipped Samsung Galaxy devices have been certified through NSA’s National Information Assurance Partnership initiative and added to the Commercial Solutions for Classified Program Component List, the company said Tuesday.

Earlier this year, Samsung received approval from the Defense Information Systems Agency for its mobile devices to operate on military networks for sensitive but unclassified data.

The CSfC framework is designed to supplement DISA’s product security authorization program and seeks to encourage agencies and vendors to develop government data protection tools, according to Samsung.
