SOTI Announces Support for Samsung KNOX

February 25, 2013

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.
