Samsung has partnered with Good Technology to create Good for Samsung Knox, which merges Good’s secure app ecosystem with Samsung’s enterprise security platform. Now businesses that have adopted Samsung’s Knox program will have the ability to allow employees to download a multitude of apps on a secure platform. Good is the first enterprise mobility management (EMM) that’s fully integrated directly into Samsung Knox. Samsung hopes this will open up an opportunity for enterprises and government agencies that are looking to accelerate their Android deployment to push mobile security further.
Christy Wyatt, chairman and CEO of Good Technology, says:
Good is trusted in 100-percent of the Fortune 100 commercial banks and aerospace and defense agencies, as well as thousands of other businesses and public agencies. Now the millions of deployed Good-secured apps and containers can be easily integrated with Samsung’s KNOX-secure Android solution.
This announcement follows on the heels of the Samsung Knox and Blackberry partnership from late last year. The partnership integrated BlackBerry’s cross-platform BES12 enterprise mobility management software into Samsung’s Knox security for Android devices. Additionally, certain features of Knox have been rolled into Google’s own “Android for Work” initiative that was announced at last year’s Google I/O.
