Samsung SDS EMM attains NIAP Common Criteria certification

Samsung SDS America has announced that its enterprise mobility management (EMM) solution has secured a certification which will aid it for clients handling sensitive data.

Its EMM product has advanced to the evaluation stage of National Information Assurance Partnership (NIAP) Common Criteria certification for EMM compliance with the security requirements of the Mobile Device Management Protection Profile (MDM-PP) version 4.0.

Samsung SDS EMM provides a cross platform mobility management solution to government and enterprise clients built from scratch with government-grade security, flexible features, and extensive support for Samsung Knox, which is the company’s mobile security platform. The solution offers mobile device management, mobile application management, data security and container management features, along with private push capabilities and many other features related to security conscious enterprises. All this is managed via a web-based administrative console.

After obtaining the NIAP certification, Samsung SDS EMM will be positioned as a partner of choice EMM solution that fulfils crucial US federal government requirements for deployment in secure, classified, and tactical environments handling sensitive data.

In July, Google released a new Android standard, called OEMConfig, for enterprise mobility management (EMM) providers who make software that enable organisations to securely support employee use of mobile devices and applications. As originally reported by CBR, OEMConfig focuses on removing the need for EMM product designers to build support for every feature, included on original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) devices.

In April, MobileIron became the first unified endpoint management (UEM) provider to receive Common Criteria certification against Version 3.0 of the Mobile Device Management Protection Profile (MDMPP v3.0 and MDMPP Agent v3.0) from the NIAP. MDMPP v3.0 describes security requirements for Mobile Device Management (MDM) products that allow enterprises to apply security policies to mobile devices. The purpose of these policies is to establish adequate security posture to permit mobile devices to process enterprise data and connect to enterprise network resources.
