General Dynamics Providing Samsung Mobile Device Security Tech; Chris Marzilli Comments

GDlogoGeneral Dynamics‘ C4 systems business unit will incorporate its security technology into Samsung mobile devices for a partnership intended to secure both hardware and applications.

The GD Protected technology will run on Samsung Galaxy devices running the KNOX platform, General Dynamics said Monday.

“Whether they are connected to their employer’s secure network or mapping an address using the Internet, mobile workers will have the same experience that they have come to expect when using their personal smartphones,” said Chris Marzilli, president of the C4 systems unit.

Injong Rhee, Samsung Electronics senior vice president for technology strategy and B2B R&D group, said the companies are aiming to help public sector and regulated-industry customers secure mobile devices.

GD Protected technology for Samsung KNOX devices will be available in the second quarter of 2013, General Dynamics said.
