Apple and Samsung granted DOD security clearance

May 2 2013, 12:11am CDT | by , in News | Technology News

Apple and Samsung granted DOD security clearance
 
 

BlackBerry prides itself for being safe and secure inside out - attributes that attracted the attention of the Department of Defense. But the undivided attention might soon end, as the DoD is reported to be entertaining Apple and Samsung as well.


Blackberry rivals, Apple and Samsung, score another victory with a reported grant of security approval from the United States Department of Defense.

According to The Wall Street Journal, the DOD will reportedly grant clearance to Apple and Samsung devices for use by Pentagon officials. In particular, security approval will be awarded to Samsung’s Galaxy smartphones and Apple’s iPhone and iPad running on iOS 6.

The grant for security approval stems from requests for clearance made by Apple and Samsung to allow DoD employees to transition from Blackberry devices, some of which are outdated. 

The DOD branch Defense Information Systems Agency will reportedly be the one to evaluate both Apple and Samsung devices in the coming weeks. The DISA is also in charge of approving commercial technology for use inside the Pentagon.

The agency will decide whether Samsung’s Galaxy line of smartphones complies with the agency’s Security Technology Implementation Guide. Samsung’s smartphones come preloaded with the company’s built-in Knox security software.


The agency will also be responsible for sanctioning Apple’s smartphones and tablets running on iOS 6 for use of military agencies in a separate determination. The Apple devices will be used for nonclassified military communications such as basic Web browsing and email messages.
