SAP and Samsung partner to provide further security and flexibility on Android devices for employees and organizations
Do you combine your personal applications with your work applications on your mobile devices? Have you ever given your kids or nieces/nephews to play on you device or watch a movie? For the vast majority of mobile workers the answer to this question is YES. The problem that this represents to organizations can be huge; there are security issues, data protection and other kind of problems related with this common practice.
In order to avoid these set of issues Samsung launched Samsung KNOX early this year.
“Samsung KNOX™ is the comprehensive enterprise mobile solution for work and play. With the increasing use of smartphones in businesses, Samsung KNOX addresses the mobile security needs of enterprise IT without invading the privacy of its employees.”
SAP, recognizing the importance of integrating its solutions with Samsung KNOX, has recently passed all required KNOX certificate test and has the most integrated KNOX features among MDM (Mobile Device Management) partners. Not only that, but SAP is one of only two Platinum partner among several hundreds of Samsung Enterprise Alliance Program partners.
Samsung KNOX in simple terms is a secure container in your mobile device; a container where all your enterprise related apps will reside. So now you can switch between your work and personal life with flexibility and without concerns around security; keeping your personal and professional life separated.
With the certification of SAP on Samsung KNOX, now SAP Afaria can manage the following areas of a KNOX container:
- Enterprise License management
- Container policies and set up including
- Attestation Policy
- Container creation
- Application Policy
- Browser Policy
- Exchange Account Policy
- Firewall Policy
- Premium VPN Policy
- Restriction Policy
- Single Sign-On Policy
- KNOX specific inventory reporting
- Remote container lock/unlock and password reset enforcement

These are just the high level of the features you can control with SAP Afaria and Samsung KNOX.
