Fixmo, a provider of mobile security and risk management solutions for the public and private sectors, will enable the secure and compliant use of Samsung Knox devices within the U.S. Department of Defense (DoD), by employing its defense-grade enterprise mobility solutions.
Through a newly ratified Security Technical Implementation Guide (STIG) published by the Defense Information Systems Agency (DISA), mobile devices powered by the Samsung Knox platform have now been approved for use within DoD agencies when coupled with the Fixmo Sentinel solution for device integrity verification, tamper detection and mobile device management (MDM). With the offering, DoD agencies can empower their employees with the latest Samsung Galaxy devices and Android-based mobile applications while maintaining compliance with the STIG security requirements.
With Fixmo Sentinel, IT organizations can go beyond traditional policy management capabilities to ensure their mobile devices and applications start, and remain, in a trusted and compliant state.
In addition to supporting an extensive set of MDM policies for securing the use of Samsung Knox devices, Fixmo provides a device integrity verification solution that has been developed as part of a Co-operative Research and Development Agreement (CRADA) with the U.S. National Security Agency. Samsung Knox devices are the first to offer Fixmo’s patented technology as an embedded solution out-of-the-box.
The announcement comes on the heels of Fixmo’s recent news of its collaboration with the U.S. Air Force to provide technologies to ensure secure mobile communications and safe access to mission critical applications on a range of smartphones and tablets.
