Samsung said on Jan. 11th that three products in the Galaxy smartphone and tablet line were granted the Federal Information Processing Standard 140-2 (FIPS) certification.
FIPS is a federally issued, U.S. information security standard certified by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) to devices which meet strict security and interoperability standards.
This means that government agencies and regulated industries, such as financial and health-care institutions, can use the global version of the Galaxy S II smartphone, Galaxy Tab 10.1 WiFi as well as the 4G LTE-enabled Galaxy Tab 10.1 with Verizon Wireless to meet their mobile enterprise needs.
Cho BumCoo, Senior Vice President of Enterprise Solution Team at Samsung said: “Samsung proactively sought FIPS certification to show our current and potential government and business customers that we take their security and interoperability needs seriously. This certification is a testament to the high level of enterprise business-readiness of our premium smartphones and tablets.”
