Galaxy S10 is first 5G phone that can be used by US federal workforce

Samsung has expanded its list of smartphones which can be used by the federal government of the United States with the addition of the Galaxy S10 series, the Galaxy S9, and Galaxy Note 9. These devices have now obtained STIG (Security Technical Implementation Guide) approval, ensuring they are capable of protecting sensitive military data and providing security for the Department of Defense’s (DoD) information systems.

These are not the first Samsung smartphones to obtain STIG approval, as they join older devices like the Galaxy S8/S8+ and Galaxy Note 8. However, the Galaxy S10 5G is the first 5G-enabled device to meet the security standards of the federal workforce.

The recent launch of the Galaxy S10 5G coupled with growth of 5G networks has unlocked a new era in federal use cases” stated Chris Balcik, Vice President of Federal, Samsung Electronics America. “From enabling ‘smart’ connectivity on military bases to aid mission coordinating and tactical execution, we are about to witness how the entire landscape will change.”

Last month, the Galaxy S9 has been employed by deputies in the Kit Carson County Sheriff’s Office in Burlington, Colorado, as part of their standard equipment and body camera. Now, in light of the recent STIG approvals, more Samsung devices will likely be used by the federal workforce in various sectors.

“while increasing flexibility and lowering cost for the federal industry”

so federal have to pay less than normal customer ?


I bet if you buy a few hundred to a few thousand phones at a time from Samsung, they will give you a discount too. If you buy tens of thousands of phones, I’m sure the discount will even be bigger.
