As widely expected, Samsung has just formally announced the launch of the Samsung KNOX Partner Program designed for ISVs and resellers to extend the benefits of KNOX to the enterprise market.
Samsung KNOX was introduced in Barcelona earlier this year as an enterprise-ready Secure Android Platform powering new Samsung GALAXY branded devices in the market.
KNOX is “designed from the ground up” to systematically fortify Android by leveraging the hardware to provide exceptional security.
“KNOX resolves the two major enterprise mobility concerns for customers–security and manageability – in addition to addressing the ability to seamlessly separate work and play,” Samsung said in a news release shared with MMW today.
The electronics giant claims that its KNOX Partner Program creates vast opportunities for resellers and ISVs to deliver sustained value to their customers.
“We are launching Samsung KNOX partner program and believe it is a truly exciting time in our journey towards winning in the Enterprise segment,” says Dr. Injong Rhee, Senior Vice President and Head of B2B R&D Group, IT & Mobile Division at Samsung Electronics, “With Samsung KNOX, for the very first time Enterprise IT can deploy Android devices, which are loved by consumers, for enterprise usage, ensuring highest levels of platform security and information protection. This excitement is shared by our Go-To-Market partners and they have signed up overwhelmingly to partner with us to resell KNOX and in turn unlock tremendous value in their Enterprise Mobility offerings. We look forward to a long-term win-win with our partners.”
