General Dynamics C4 Systems announced today that it will deliver up to 1,000 Samsung KNOXTM-enabled Galaxy S4 smart phones provisioned with added GD Protected software for the US government.
General Dynamics recently received the Defense Mobile Classified Capability (DMCC) contract from the National Security Agency (NSA). With these new smart phones, authorized government personnel will be able to make secure phone calls and access classified email. The GD Protected Samsung KNOX smart phones represent an important step toward the government's Commercial Solutions for Classified initiative.
"Mobile government workers now have the freedom to read classified emails and talk securely anywhere, every time," said Chris Marzilli, president of General Dynamics C4 Systems. "The GD Protected, Samsung KNOX Galaxy S 4 smart phone integrates government-approved commercial components to provide a mobile security solution that the government can buy off the shelf from General Dynamics."
GD Protected smart phones are built on the KNOX mobile security solution by Samsung. General Dynamics loads the GD Protected software onto the Samsung KNOX devices and from that point on, the phone operates using only authorized software and applications from a trusted source. System updates and upgrades will be provided over the air by General Dynamics. The GD Protected Samsung KNOX Galaxy S 4 smartphones will also include government-approved mobile device management from Mobile Iron and secure voice from CellCrypt.

"For government Enterprise IT managers, Samsung KNOX enables GD Protected to support the remote management of a smartphone or other mobile device using approved mobile device management tools."
