Samsung KNOX gains Government Certifications in China and France

Last updated:

Samsung has announced that it has received the security solution certificate by the China Information Security Certification Center (ISCCC) and France’s National Agency of Computer Security (ANSSI).

Samsung worked closely with both the ISCCC and ANSSI to develop the certification processes, including device requirements and security standards.

“Samsung KNOX is unmatched in its ability to deliver trusted mobile security across an all-encompassing robust platform,” said Dr. Injong Rhee, Executive Vice President and Head of R&D, Software and Services, Mobile Communications Business at Samsung Electronics.

“Our market leadership, innovative technology and worldwide government certification is second to none, and we look forward to giving more people the opportunity to operate mobility with complete safety.”

By securing the critical ISCCC certification, Samsung will have a stronger foothold to garner mobile device contracts with China’s regulated industries – including government authorities, ministries and finance. The mobile devices used for testing were the Galaxy S6 edge+ and Galaxy Note5. Now, government officials and public sector workers will be able to enjoy the built-in protection provided by these Galaxy devices, from the moment the device is turned on.

ANSSI is France’s national service in charge of information security. The testing was done with Samsung KNOX Workspace 2.3, and this first evaluation is focused on the dynamic partitioning provided by KNOX Workspace. Samsung is working closely with ANSSI to allow companies to be provided integrated solution meeting stringent security standards with Samsung’s secure device. Receiving the first level security certification (CSPN) differentiates Samsung’s mobile devices within France.

Samsung has received several mobile security certifications, including the U.S. Department of Defense, UK Communications and Electronics Security Group and other governments such as Finland and Russia.
