General Dynamics C4 Systems is delivering 300 Sectera Edge smartphones to the U.S. Air Force for use by senior leaders, the company announced.
The deliveries represent the first major Air Force deployment of Secure Mobile Environment — Portable Electronic Devices.
The smartphones are part of a broader Air Force plan to integrate Secure Mobile Environment — Portable Electronic Devices like the Sectera Edge into its consolidated enterprise network.
“The Sectera Edge provides cybersecurity at the hip,” said Mike Guzelian, vice president of Secure Voice and Data Products for General Dynamics C4 Systems. “Air Force and civilian personnel will have cost-effective, secure access to classified and unclassified networks, even the Internet, from virtually anywhere in the world.”
The Sectera Edge is the first SME-PED certified by the National Security Agency for classified voice and data, using wireless access to commercial WiFi and cellular networks that provide access to classified and unclassified government networks.
