For Samsung, this means its hard work in Washington is paying off. The Journal says it’s hired several former RIM executives, as well as veterans from security-focused firms, and recently created an in-house enterprise team.“The Department of Defense is expected in coming weeks to grant two separate, security approvals for Samsung’s Galaxy smartphones, along with iPhones and iPads running Apple’s latest operating system, according to people familiar with the matter—moves that would boost the number of U.S. government agencies allowed to use those devices.”
For Apple, this would mean more, much-needed clout in mobile security, as an approval by the DoD is considered to be the gold standard in the field. It would certainly open doors with other like-minded, security-concerned clients.
So it looks like that the only loser in this game is BlackBerry... So what do you think ?
