Centrify CEO Tom Kemp said the expansion of the strategic OEM partnership with Samsung, with Samsung using the company’s IAM technology in a fully Samsung-branded solution, also delivered the first integrated cloud and mobile management solution of its kind to users.
“Due to our work with Samsung over the years, Centrify has become the key cloud identity provider for KNOX EMM, delivering the first integrated cloud and mobile management solution of its kind to users,” Kemp said.
“Through this partnership with Samsung, we are enabling organisations to simply and securely achieve maximum mobile productivity from their workforce via enterprise-class mobile and SaaS management across the platforms of choice for millions of users.”
Also available for non-Samsung devices, organisations can leverage Centrify’s cloud service to comprehensively manage cross-platform mobile users and devices to address security and management of enterprise mobility, application access, and Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) and Corporate Owned Personally Enabled (COPE) device challenges.
According to Centrify’s Shreyas Sadalgi, KNOX EMM is a cost-effective cloud-based service for organisations that want to enable Samsung Galaxy smartphones or tablets for business use with a simple remote device and mobile app management solution. Additionally, KNOX EMM is also available as a solution for centrally managing Apple iOS and non-Samsung Android devices and apps.
“KNOX EMM enables ‘identity where you want it’ scenarios that allow organisations to either integrate their existing Active Directory identities or leverage cloud-based identities from enterprise cloud directories, such as Samsung EMM Cloud Directory or Windows Azure Active Directory, to enable federated identity to thousands of SaaS applications,” Sadalgi said.
In addition, customers can either deploy hundreds of mobile policies via a fully cloud-based service or leverage their on-premise Active Directory Group Policy infrastructure to secure and manage mobile devices. This identity and policy flexibility, combined with a single cloud-based architecture and integrated user interface for mobile device, app and cloud app management, makes KNOX EMM unique in the market.”
