PROVO, Utah, Dec. 17, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Novell® today announced that Novell Filr and Novell iPrint are among apps approved and available for Samsung KNOX, a comprehensive mobile security solution for the latest Samsung devices. By combining Samsung KNOX's capabilities with Novell Filr and Novell iPrint, enterprises can provide user-friendly, security enabled mobile file-sharing and mobile printing in a corporate environment.

The joint solution enables secure enterprise file sharing on Samsung mobile devices from creation to print. Samsung KNOX allows Novell Filr to be securely managed alongside a user's personal data from a single mobile device and provides an additional layer of security by leveraging hardware-level features to provide enhanced security. Novell Filr lets mobile workers access, share and collaborate on files anywhere at any time from the device of their choice, while Novell iPrint allows users to print more securely from their Android devices to legacy printers. 

Novell Filr is a mobile file sharing solution that gives IT complete control of all shared files and provides users with anywhere, any-device access. Novell is the pioneer of networked file and print services and is built specifically for the enterprise.

Novell iPrint is a virtual appliance that offers self-service printing for the enterprise and allows users of new mobile devices to print from existing legacy printers. Only Novell iPrint offers a single, scalable solution to manage printing needs across multiple office locations from any device.

Samsung KNOX is a comprehensive enterprise mobile solution that safeguards enterprise data on Android devices without invading the privacy of employees by separating work and personal environments on one device. Samsung KNOX meets the needs of the most difficult, highly secure corporate environments.

"Novell is committed to building enterprise-level software that simplifies IT's task of balancing security and additional corporate requirements while maintaining employee productivity," said Bob Flynn, president and general manager of Novell. "By strategically partnering with Samsung, employees can combine their business and personal needs on a single device, without compromising the security that IT departments must maintain."

According to Gartner, Samsung is the leader in market share for mobile device shipments, with 29.7 percent market share. Increasing security on Android devices provides IT departments with the convenience and assurance to implement BYOD strategies. Samsung KNOX provides enhanced security for enterprise data, by restricting Novell Filr to interact with only approved enterprise applications.

"As consumers continue to bring Samsung devices into corporate environments, we remain dedicated to increasing the security of sensitive data," said Injong Rhee, Senior Vice President and Head of KNOX Business Group, IT & Mobile Communications Division at Samsung Electronics. "With Novell Filr, Samsung users gain the mobile access they rely on to remain productive, while control of all corporate files remain in the IT department's hands."

Novell Filr is currently available, and integration with Samsung KNOX is now generally available. For additional information, visit or or contact your Novell representative.
