"We are very pleased to announce that the U.S. Department of Defense has approved Samsung Knox-enabled devices for use in DoD networks," Samsung Mobile President JK Shin said in a statement. "This approval enables other government agencies and regulated industries such as health care and financial services to adopt Samsung Galaxy smartphones and tablets. This is a significant milestone for Samsung as we work to grow our relationships within government and large corporate enterprises."On Thursday, the Pentagon gave the same approval to BlackBerry devices with the BlackBerry 10 operating system, which translates into its Q10 and Z10 smartphones and Playbook tablets.
In the past, BlackBerry was the go-to vendor for government and big business due to the high-level security on its devices, But Apple and pursuit series case for apple iphone xr - black/clear Android have begun carving out of a chunk of this lucrative market, Samsung in particular is aiming to muscle in on BlackBerry's territory with help from its Knox software, Part of the Samsung for Enterprise (SAFE) initiative, Knox comes built into the operating system and addresses all major security holes in Android, according to the company, Knox's ability to keep personal and business data separate matches a similar feature in BB10 called BlackBerry Balance..
Up to now at least, BlackBerry hasn't appeared to be concerned about Samsung's efforts. "Whatever any of our competitors announce, one thing won't change. The most secure mobile computing solution is a BlackBerry device running on a BlackBerry platform," David Smith, executive vice president of mobile computing for BlackBerry, said in February. The government's nod to both Samsung and BlackBerrry still leaves Apple out in the cold. The iPhone maker is also seeking approval from the Department of Defense for its mobile devices. Specifically, the DOD needs to certify the iOS 6 operating system as secure enough to be used by defense agencies and the military. However, that approval is expected within the next few weeks, The Wall Street Journal reported Wednesday.
The Pentagon gives official approval to any Samsung device protected by the Knox security software, which for now includes just the Galaxy S4, Samsung is now clear to start pursuit series case for apple iphone xr - black/clear pitching its new flagship phone to the government, The handset maker announced Friday that its Knox-enabled mobile devices have been approved by the Pentagon for government use, Samsung's Knox software offers high-level encryption, a VPN feature, and a way to separate personal data from work data, The software also enables IT administrators to manage a mobile device through specific policies..
Some people might wish for practical features borrowed from other operating systems. BlackBerry 10's ability to create separate work and personal profiles and move easily between them could be a nice addition to Android. Lots of parents hand their phones off to their young ones to let them play games. Those Android users would welcome a kid's mode that would lock out things like e-mail or certain Web sites. One feature that Samsung has teased users with, but that would make a lot of sense in Android at large, is the ability to have multiple apps open and running at the same time. This could come true across the platform with the implementation of a multiple-windows feature or a split-screen option. It certainly makes sense for all those honking-huge smartphone screens we're getting.
