SUNNYVALE, Calif., July 14, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Good Technology™, the leader in secure mobility, today announced it has entered into a global reseller arrangement with Samsung Electronics America, Inc. The two-part agreement will allow Samsung Business Services, part of Samsung Electronics America, Inc., to resell Good enterprise mobility management (EMM) suites and collaboration apps as well as provide troubleshooting, maintenance and support for Good software.

"Enterprises continue to mobilize their primary computing platforms using Samsung devices," said Robin Bienfait, chief enterprise innovation officer at Samsung. "Our strategic alliance with Good Technology, one of the industry's largest mobile security leaders, strengthens Samsung Business Services' ability to deliver high touch service, support and solutions for our customers."

Samsung Business Services will offer Good Technology products and services, providing enterprise customers a single point of contact to not only manage and support their enterprise mobility infrastructure, but also provide a range of associated services and solutions. Samsung Business Services enterprise technology specialists will provide customer guidance and technical support for the Good Technology secure container and collaboration apps, including Good Work™ and Good for Enterprise®, deployed on Samsung devices with built-in KNOX mobile security.

"Enterprise customers today continue to prioritize true security for their mobile deployments," said Christy Wyatt, chairman and CEO at Good Technology. "Good has long been the leader in secure mobility for the Global Enterprise. Leveraging the depth and breadth of distribution and support with the Samsung alliance, we are excited to be able to give customers new ways to work with Good on a global basis."

Good's secure container and collaboration apps integrate into the KNOX mobile security framework providing a tightly integrated, end to end secure productivity solution for Android in the enterprise. Over 1900 ISV partner and custom apps have been built on the Good Dynamics Secure Mobility Platform, providing app-level encryption, advanced Data Loss Prevention and secure communication between apps.
