Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 and Galaxy S II receive FIPS certification, secret agents take note
It has been just announced that the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 – both the Wi-Fi-only and Verizon's 4G LTE versions, along with the the Galaxy S II, have been given FIPS certification. What is that you ask? Well, FIPS stands for Federal Information Processing Standard, and the devices which are certified in accordance to it comply with a number of security and interoperability standards. Such devices are used in enterprises where the secure transfer and storage of sensitive unclassified information is of utmost priority, such as government agencies and financial institutions.

This actually isn't Samsung's first attempt at catering for the needs of enterprise customers. In 2011, the company unveiled its very own SAFE (Samsung Approved for Enterprise) certification for Samsung devices tailored for enterprise use. Among the requirements are support for Microsoft Exchange, VPN connectivity, as well as support for data encryption. Additionally, SAFE-certified devices need to be capable of creating and editing Microsoft-compatible documents.

The full press release is embedded below, so those who are interested are free to take a look.
