SOTI & Samsung Solve BYOD Dilemma with KNOX Containerization Technology
Barcelona, Spain – February 25, 2013 - SOTI Inc., the world leader in Enterprise Mobile Device Management (MDM) and Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) policy management, today announces its support for Samsung’s groundbreaking new KNOX technology. Increasingly, employees are using their personal mobile devices for work, such as accessing corporate email or Wi-Fi. Corporations want to support the requests of their employees, while being mindful of the risks of enabling personal devices to house enterprise data. KNOX technology solves the problem of how to manage both the personal and corporate data on an employee’s mobile device while ensuring the security of corporate data and not compromising the user experience. This marks the continuation of a long-standing relationship between Samsung, the leader in worldwide smartphone sales and SOTI, a recognized leader in enterprise mobile device management solutions.
Samsung’s KNOX delivers robust security via the use of advanced containerization technology to segment personal and corporate content. Traditional containerization approaches on mobile devices use “application level” containerization, which have the effect of delivering a lower grade of security as well as limiting the native experience on mobile devices. KNOX containerization is implemented at an operating system (OS) level, allowing the container and its contents to be guarded and protected at a much more deeper and granular level. KNOX also offers other powerful security features such as the ability to configure a VPN for the entire container. KNOX containerization is implemented at an OS level, so organizations have the flexibility to choose the apps they want to install into the container, and no external wrapping or special development is required to make an app eligible for containerization. KNOX also includes a single sign-on (SSO) authentication system to further enhance the user experience.
SOTI’s MobiControl MDM product leverages Samsung’s KNOX technology to deliver a solution that allows organizations to leverage the benefits of mobility while making sure that their corporate data is safe and secure. MobiControl allows IT administrators to manage their data within KNOX containers via an easy-to-use management console and a powerful set of management features such as anti-virus configuration, category based web filtering, email policies, document management, location based management and much more.
“Enterprises requiring a high degree of security on their mobile devices need to seriously consider Samsung’s KNOX technology,” said Carl Rodrigues, President and CEO of SOTI. “KNOX makes containerization a viable option to achieve mobile security, while not sacrificing user experience. We are very excited to be working with Samsung and delivering the management of this exciting technology to customers via MobiControl.”
