WidePoint leverages innovations in Enterprise Mobility Management (EMM) from Samsung SDS with up to the highest level of U.S. Federal Government-defined secure credentialing capabilities

WidePoint Corporation announced today that it has entered into a strategic alliance with Samsung SDS America. The partnership enables WidePoint Certificate-on-Deviceâ„¢ digital certificates for use on Samsung Galaxy S devices, such as Galaxy S4, Galaxy S5, Galaxy Note 3, Galaxy Note 4 and Galaxy Note Edge. Further, WidePoint is announcing the integration of Samsung SDS’s (Samsung SDS) CellWe Enterprise Mobility Management (EMM) solution with WidePoint’s ITMSâ„¢ Telecom Lifecycle Management System.

WidePoint’s next-generation identity management and assurance services provide standardized, high-grade credentialing capabilities across a growing number of communities of interest. The services offer an important next step for WidePoint’s partners and customers in achieving a fully interoperable cyber authentication ecosystem across federal, commercial, and international markets, to ensure that only authorized and protected devices can access enterprise resources hosted in any private or public cloud environment.

With the tight coupling of Samsung SDS CellWe EMM solution with WidePoint Certificate-on-Deviceâ„¢, customers are able to deliver WidePoint digital certificates to Samsung devices that use Samsung KNOX. This combination creates the industry’s only Android-based devices capable of safeguarding enterprise data with multiple layers of hardware- and software-based protection that meet U.S. Federal Government-defined secure credentialing capabilities previously unachievable.

WidePoint’s digital certificates, stored in a secure hardware environment on the Samsung Galaxy S devices as mentioned above, meet the National Institute of Standards & Technology (NIST) standards for the highest levels of information assurance. Adding WidePoint’s government-certified credentials enables the use of a device certificate for authentication, from the Samsung Galaxy S devices, without the need to present a smart card, for a hassle-free user experience.

The integration between WidePoint’s Intelligent Telecommunications Management System (ITMSâ„¢) and Samsung SDS CellWe EMM further adds convenience, efficiency, security, and enhanced control across a wide spectrum of enterprise wide mobile users. WidePoint’s ITMS provides users with a secure, central portal to manage telecom expenses and inventory information, and now, mobile device management functionality provided by the solution Samsung SDS CellWe EMM.
