Samsung biometrics-based Mobile Security Management Suite wins GSMA mobile award

March 7, 2017 - 

Samsung was awarded the GSMA Global Mobile Award for its Mobile Security Management Suite at last week’s Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, according to a report by Wireless Week.

The GSMA Association awarded Samsung with the “Best Mobile Security of Anti-Fraud Solution” in the category of innovation in the mobile market.

The company’s Mobile Security Management Suite uses PKI-based biometric solution Nexsign and Enterprise Mobile Management to connect fingerprint, voice, or facial biometrics data to user information on mobile devices.

Enterprise Mobile Management offers various authentication methods and deployments, including configuring user privileges from an administrative account to manage company accounts.

Samsung’s Mobile Security Management Suite enables companies to securely manage their devices while limiting security risks without compromising user convenience.

“SDS was honored to receive this world-renowned award for its competence in mobile security that global companies are focusing on,” Won-Pyo Hong, president of solution business at Samsung SDS, said. “We hope to be a good example for many domestic and international businesses that are keen on promoting both security and user convenience.”

Samsung SDS EMM was the first product to receive the National Information Assurance Partnership’s (NIAP) U.S. Common Criteria for both Android and iOS.

Previously reported, Samsung recently filed its 47th patent relating to a flexible display / foldable / scrollable invention. The company also indicated that it is working on integrating security biometric authentication features into the design.
