Viasat Inc., a global communications company, announced today it’s Mobile Dynamic Defense (MDD) cybersecurity software is now available for the new Samsung Galaxy S20 Tactical Edition (TE) solution. The Viasat MDD platform will ensure sensitive Department of Defense (DoD), U.S. federal government and international Five Eye (FVEY) allied forces information, hosted on the Samsung Galaxy S20 TE device, is continually monitored and protected from compromise—even if the device is disconnected from the military or government operations center.

Viasat’s MDD solution provides advanced cyber protection, information assurance, and enhanced mobile management. It works in environments with limited and no network connectivity and has the flexibility to adjust to mission needs at a moment’s notice.

Ken Peterman, president, Government System at Viasat commented, “By embedding Viasat’s MDD cybersecurity platform into the Samsung Galaxy S20 Tactical Edition we are ensuring today’s military personnel, government leaders and high profile business executives are securely connected and ‘mission-ready.’ Our integrated mobile cyber-defense solution enables missions to be completed without the fear of jeopardizing confidential military or government policy, the proprietary information, or device integrity. Viasat MDD is a critical capability proven to protect device users—whether remote, local, or connected to a live network—by allowing them to provision and configure their device as their mission changes.”
