ManageEngine, a real-time IT management company, said Thursday that Desktop Central now supports Samsung KNOX, a “multi-layered security technology” designed to enable a secure and productive workspace for so-called mobile professionals.
Thanks to this win-win partnership, ManageEngine says it will bolster its desktop and mobile device management (MDM) software with advanced mobile device management capabilities.
Chief among these capabilities is that IT personnel can secure Samsung devices without invading user privacy.
Mobile device usage among employees continues to grow at a tremendous speed, driven by user-friendly trends like BYOD. Understanding this in enterprise mobility, Samsung Electronics, a global leader in digital media and digital convergence technologies, has developed the KNOX platform to provide a comprehensive security solution for enterprise Samsung mobile devices.
“In 2013, we partnered with Samsung to support SAFE devices. Now, we’re adding KNOX capability to elevate that partnership one step further,” says Mathivanan Venkatachalam, director of product management at ManageEngine. “This enhanced security feature helps IT teams exercise precise control over the corporate data accessed by employees. And it provides flexible mobile device management operations without compromising on data security.”
