ManageEngine partners with Samsung to deliver greater mobile security

14 Jan 15

ManageEngine, the real-time management company, has partnered with Samsung and has announced Desktop Central now supports Samsung Knox. 

Knox is a multi-layered security technology that enables a secure and productive workspace for mobile professionals. It allows ManageEngine to provide advanced mobile device management capabilities that let IT personnel secure Samsung devices without invading user privacy, and can boost the company's desktop and mobile device management (MDM) software. 

Trends such as BYOD continue to drive mobile device usage among enterprise employees, says ManageEngine. In response to this, Samsung Electronics developed the Knox platform to provide a comprehensive security solution for enterprise Samsung mobile devices.

Mathivanan Venkatachalam, ManageEngine director of product management, says, "In 2013, we partnered with Samsung to support Safe devices. Now, we're adding Knox capability to elevate that partnership one step further."

"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," says Venkatachalam.

ManageEngine is distributed in New Zealand through Soft Solutions.
