The Enterprise Mobility Management (EMM) solution from Samsung SDS has officially met the common certification criteria for National Information Assurance Partnership (NIAP). The certification indicates that the EMM solution is compliant with the 4.0 version of the Mobile Device Management Protection Profile (MDM-PP) security requirements.
According to Samsung SDS America, the company’s EMM solution is the first to meet the MDM-PP v4.0 standards, indicating that the platform is secure enough for government agencies need to handle classified information and other sensitive data. The Common Criteria evaluates both the design and the implementation of security solutions.
“The Samsung SDS EMM platform provides a field-ready, proven solution built for the most secure environments, from classified government operations to mission-critical, tactical scenarios,” said Samsung SDS America Chief Business Officer and SVP Mingu Lee.
Samsung SDS EMM is a mobile device and mobile application management platform that allows organizations to monitor their network from a web-based administrative console. The company upgraded its security algorithm and boosted its encrypted communications capabilities in order to meet the MDM-PP v4.0 requirements. The EMM solution is compatible with Samsung’s Knox security tech and recently introduced support for the DualDAR add-on encryption module.
This is the third time that Samsung SDS has achieved NIAP Common Criteria certification.
The news comes shortly after Samsung SDS teamed up with Syniverse to develop a universal mobile payments platform. The platform will be wallet-agnostic, and will utilize Samsung’s Nexledger blockchain tech, which is also integral to Samsung’s new medical claims processing service. That service was unveiled back in January, and is expected to reduce the administrative burden for healthcare providers and speed up the insurance process.
More recently, Samsung SDS joined forces with PwC Consulting to encourage more companies to move forward with their digital transformation. The latest EMM certification should only serve to advance those efforts.
