SOTI Announces Support for Samsung KNOX

Feb 25, 2013, 02:00 ET from SOTI Inc.

BARCELONA, Spain, Feb. 25, 2013 /PRNewswire/ - 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 enterprise solution, Samsung KNOX.  This technology balances the demands of increased mobility in the workforce with the needs of organizations to ensure a high degree of data security and safety.  This marks the continuation of a long-standing relationship between Samsung, the leader in the worldwide mobile market and SOTI, the world's most trusted provider of enterprise mobile device management solutions.

Samsung 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, or for individual applications. Because KNOX containerization is implemented at an OS level, organizations have the flexibility to choose the apps they want to install into the container, 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 end user experience.

SOTI's MobiControl MDM product leverages Samsung KNOX 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.

"We are pleased to continue our strong relationship with SOTI, reinforcing our history of delivering innovative features for enterprise mobility, and today with KNOX, SOTI and Samsung are enabling secure and seamless device management for our customer's devices," said Jae Shin, Vice President, B2B Business Group at Samsung Electronics.

"Enterprises requiring a high degree of security on their mobile devices need to seriously consider Samsung KNOX. 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 solution to customers via MobiControl." said Carl Rodrigues, President and CEO of SOTI.
