Infotech Lead America: SOTI announced its support for Samsung’s new Knox containerization technology.
SOTI’s MobiControl mobile device management (MDM) product leverages Samsung’s Knox technology to deliver a solution that allows organizations to leverage the benefits of mobility while ensuring the security and safety of corporate data, encouraging the increase in adoption ofBYOD in organizations.
MobiControl enables IT administrators to manage their data within Knox containers through a management console. It also offers a powerful set of management features like anti-virus configuration, category based web filtering, email policies, document management and location based management, amongst others.
As Knox containerization is implemented at an OS level, it gives organizations the flexibility to choose the apps they want to install into the container without external wrapping or special development to make an app eligible for containerization. Knox includes a single sign-on (SSO) authentication system to further enhance the user experience.
The solution makes it easy to manage bothpersonal and corporate data on an employee’s mobile device while ensuring the safety of corporate data without compromising on the user experience.
Traditional containerization offer application level containerization approaches on mobile devices use, which has the effect of delivering a lower grade of security and limits the native experience on mobile devices. Samsung’s Knox delivers robust security via the use of advanced containerization technology to segment personal and corporate content.
The operating system (OS) level implementation of Knox containerization ensures that the container and its contents are guarded and protected at a much more deeper and granular level. Knox also offers other powerful security features and the ability to configure a VPN for the entirecontainer.
This marks the continuation of a long-standing relationship between SOTI, a recognized leader in enterprise mobile device management solutions and Samsung, the leader in worldwide smartphone sales.
