The two tablets got on the Approved Products List (APL) of DISA at the same time as three Samsung smartphones: the Galaxy S4, the Galaxy S4 Active and the Galaxy Note 3.
All run Android 4.4. (Kit Kat) and feature Samsung Knox technology. Knox creates a secure “container”, within the device, for professional apps and content.
The APL serves as a reference for the U.S. Armed Forces, U.S. Government agencies and security-sensitive organizations.
The list already includes most recent iPad versions as well as the Asus Transformer Prime TF201.
