Telefonica to Resell Samsung's BYOD Platform for Android Phones
Published on: 17th Mar 2014
Telefonica is to resell Samsung's Knox security services for enterprises to public sector and enterprise customers around the globe.
The agreement's announcement follows the launch of Knox 2.0, which will enable employees to separate their work and personal lives on their mobile devices, while giving organisations enhanced security at all levels of the Android platform.
Users will be able to create separate personal and work environments on their devices with encrypted work data protected by password and fingerprint verification.
Rob Orr, Vice President of Enterprise Sales at Samsung Mobile Europe, said: "We are seeing a requirement in the market to combat security challenges and look forward to working with Telefonica to respond to the increasing convergence between consumer and enterprise technology."
Samsung Knox was introduced in 2013 as an enterprise-ready secure Android platform powering new Samsung Galaxy branded devices in the market. Knox is designed to fortify Android by leveraging the hardware to provide the level of security required by customers.
