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.
