Sprint (NYSE:S, news, filings) announced the launch of Samsung Knox Manage, a new affordable, secure Enterprise Mobility Management (EMM) solution that will give IT professionals a simple, yet powerful way to manage mobile devices across their organizations.
"Organizations using Samsung Knox Manage will benefit from a number of high-level protection and management capabilities -- particularly for IT administrators -- including security, manageability, system performance, and control," said Mishka Dehghan, Sprint vice president for product. "Knox Manage is a terrific solution for all of Sprint’s business customers, but in particular, Sprint’s small-to medium-size business customers due to its affordable price and robust capabilities."
Knox Manage: Secure, Simplified Mobility Management
Knox Manage is Samsung’s newest Enterprise Mobility Management (EMM) solution designed to increase business efficiency and secure corporate data. A cloud-based command center is created easily by IT administrators – enabling them to remotely manage devices across a variety of operating systems including Android, iOS or Windows 10 devices.
Knox Manage complements the Knox security platform available on Samsung devices, while managing other devices. Even more elevated security is possible with Samsung Galaxy devices that already feature the built-in, industry-leading Knox security platform.
The Knox security platform provides enterprise-ready Samsung Galaxy devices with highly rated,1 built-in defense grade security the moment a user powers on. The platform runs checks to ensure the device is not compromised resulting in greater controls to assure security and privacy.
"Samsung is helping Sprint Business customers to further empower IT administrators to keep their organizations more secure and productive," said Eric McCarty, vice president of mobile B2B product marketing for Samsung Electronics America. "Knox Manage will provide those businesses with simple and comprehensive tools to secure and manage a wide range of mobile environments."
In addition to Knox Manage, Sprint will offer Knox Configure, a feature-rich, cloud-based service that lets IT admins quickly, securely and remotely configure and deploy branded, custom mobile devices. The IT professionals may also configure Samsung Galaxy devices in bulk and tailor them to specific business needs.
Sprint is committed to offering best-in-class security and productivity solutions for a range of industries and will continue to help its business customers accelerate their mobile strategies through next-generation services such as Samsung Knox solutions.
