Samsung SDS is celebrating its big win at this week’s Mobile World Congress.
The Korea-based company won a Global Mobile Award (or ‘Glomo’ Award) in the category of Best Mobile Security or Anti-Fraud Solution, for its Samsung Mobile Security Management Suite. The platform brings biometric authentication to enterprise mobile management, supporting voice, fingerprint, and facial recognition.
That biometric functionality comes via Samsung SDS’s Nexsign system, which the company says is the only PKI-based biometric authentication system in the world to have attained Common Criteria certification, an ISO standard.
In a statement acknowledging the Glomo Award, the company emphasized the Glomos’ importance, calling them “the Oscars of the IT industry,” and Samsung SDS Solution Business President Won-Pyo Hong said the company is “honored” to have received its award.
