Targeting the acceleration of enterprise Android adoption and mobile productivity, Samsung and Good Technology have partnered to offer a new security container and app eco-system.
The Samsung KNOX enterprise security platform for Android, dubbed Good for Samsung KNOX, is the next step in the partnership between Good and Samsung, first announced at Mobile World Congress 2014.
Good is now the only enterprise mobility management (EMM) provider whose secure container platform and app ecosystem is integrated directly into the KNOX security stack.
Good for Samsung KNOX creates a Good-Secured Domain within KNOX’s Security-Enhanced Android operating system, where any Good apps, Good-secured apps, or custom apps secured by the Good Dynamics Secure Mobility Platform reside.
Good also provides comprehensive support for KNOX’s extended mobile device management (MDM) API set.
"The largest companies in the world trust Good Technology as the secure mobility leader, including all of the Fortune 100 commercial banks and other industry leading companies in over 190 countries," said Christy Wyatt, chairman and CEO of Good Technology.
"By partnering with Samsung to integrate our container and secure app ecosystem with the KNOX platform, we are delivering a comprehensive, layered solution to secure Samsung Android devices in the enterprise."
"Together, Samsung and Good are addressing the growing importance of mobility management for enterprises by delivering a secure mobile productivity solution for Android that will relieve organisations of past concerns with Android adoption such as rooting, viruses and malware," said Injong Rhee, executive vice president of enterprise business, IT and mobile business at Samsung Electronics.
"The combination of Samsung and Good represents the best solution for secure enterprise Android productivity – no matter whether corporate-liable, COPE or BYOD device ownership models are being used."
