MISSISSAUGA, ON, Oct. 16, 2012 /PRNewswire/ – SOTI Inc., the world’s most trusted provider of Mobile Device Management (MDM)
solutions, is proud to announce that they have completed Samsung’s SAFE
Quality Assurance testing for participation as a leading MDM solution
in Samsung’s SAFE program.  Earlier this year, Samsung
Telecommunications America (Samsung Mobile) launched their SAFE
Program. SAFE mobile devices offer enhanced enterprise security and management capabilities.

To protect sensitive corporate information, SOTI’s Mobile Device Management solution addresses the challenging management and security demands of
corporations and empowers IT departments with advanced tools to
centrally manage, secure, track and support mobile operations.

“Strong relationships with leading MDM providers like SOTI have provided
our customers with a tremendous opportunity to leverage our highly
desirable devices for both business and personal use”, said Timothy
Wagner, Vice President and General Manager of Enterprise Sales for
Samsung Mobile. “SOTI MobiControl completed a series of tests with
Samsung in order to receive the SAFE designation. By participating in
Samsung’s SAFE program, SOTI MobiControl ensures that a corporation’s
sensitive data is secured and protected when using Samsung mobile
devices.”

Carl Rodrigues, President and CEO of SOTI Inc., said, “SOTI is proud to
be the first MDM vendor to have passed Samsung’s rigorous SAFE certification process. Samsung’s SAFE program is a reflection of
Samsung’s commitment to providing enterprise customers with not only
great mobile devices, but also high quality solutions to manage,
support and secure their mobile devices. They are dedicated to
providing their customers with the best end-to-end experience. We are
therefore extremely pleased to have successfully passed Samsung’s SAFE
Quality Assurance tests. This reaffirms the depth and quality of
workmanship behind our MobiControl solution. We share a common interest
with Samsung, we care about our customers and take great pride in the
products we build.”

SAFE provides a comprehensive approach to making Android(TM) devices secure
and manageable by systematically meeting the rapidly evolving needs of
IT and the growing number of businesses allowing employees to “Bring
Your Own Device” (BYOD) to work. Samsung created SAFE as a way to defragment the Android OS across its multiple versions on U.S. carriers. Out of the box, the
SAFE-branded Galaxy S III supports a full suite of enterprise-ready
features and capabilities with support for 338 IT Policies.(1) This includes on-device AES-256 bit encryption, enhanced support for
Microsoft® Exchange ActiveSync® and support for industry-leading
Virtual Private Network (VPN) and Mobile Device Management (MDM)
solutions.  With SOTI’s successful completion of the Samsung SAFE
quality assurance process, SOTI MobiControl on Samsung SAFE devices now
delivers secure, differentiated security solutions for business users.
