Samsung SDS (CEO Hong Won-pyo) has recently won an order for Italy's defense and mobile security business, making progress in the global market.
Samsung SDS said on March 24 that it has recently won an order for Italy's defense mobile security project and an indoor location tracking system project for Singapore's public institutions.
Since 2015, Samsung SDS has been carrying out mobile security projects for the U.S. Department of Defense, the Army, Navy, Air Force and Marine Corps, the U.K. defense agency and Singapore's public organizations. Recognized for its business experience and capabilities, Samsung SDS will provide a secure mobile work environment to Italian government agencies with various security features of its mobile integrated security solution, Enterprise Mobility Management (EMM).
The solution provides necessary mobile security features for defense and public organizations, including device management and remote control under security policies by user rating, blocking unsafe network access, and preventing installation of non-business applications.
In particular, the Samsung SDS EMM solution won the latest CC (Common Criteria: Information Security Assessment) certification for Android and iOS operating systems from the National Security Agency (NSA) in February for the first time in the world.
CC certification is an essential certification system for the introduction of information security products by public organizations. Samsung SDS met the newly enacted CC certification standards by further strengthening its security level, including the expansion of cryptographic communication sections between servers and upgrading security algorithms.
The company also recently won additional orders for the Singapore public agency's "Indoor Tracking" project by fusing up the latest technologies such as AI and blockchain with its highly secure Brightics IoT platform.
Indoor Tracking is a system that uses Samsung SDS' latest IoT technology to identify visitors' real-time locations in buildings and restrict access to secure areas to prevent security accidents such as information leaks.
"We are making progress in the global mobile security market based on differentiated technology," said Lim Soo-hyun, vice president of Samsung SDS' solution business. "We will expand our top-notch mobile security business by applying AI, IoT and blockchain platforms."
