Samsung selects Centrify to support Knox security platform

Monday 25 February 2013 | 19:37 CET | News
Provider of unified identity services across data centre, cloud and mobile, Centrify, has announced that Samsung Electronics has selected Centrify to provide key enabling technology for Samsung's new mobile enterprise offering, Samsung Knox. Samsung Knox enables consumers to separate their work and personal lives on their mobile devices, while giving enterprises enhanced security at all levels of the Android platform. Centrify will enable multi-application SSO for mobile and web apps inside the Samsung Knox container, allowing customers to use their existing infrastructure, Microsoft Active Directory (AD), to manage Knox containers, Samsung devices and role-based access to mobile applications. The Centrify and Samsung partnership also includes re-sale of Centrify premium mobile and SaaS Single Sign-on offerings via Samsung partners, as well as joint marketing to Samsung customers and partners. The Centrify technology Samsung is embedding into its Knox offering is also generally available as part of Centrify's latest Cloud Services release, Certify for Mobile 2013. The service is being publicly demonstrated at Mobile World Congress 2013. 

As part of the OEM agreement, Centrify will help Samsung power the growth of a developer kit and ISV app ecosystem for Android in the enterprise through the licensing of its Mobile Authentication Services (MAS) Software Development Kit (SDK) into the Samsung for Enterprise (SAFE) SDK Framework. This enables any Android app developer to use this SAFE mobile client SDK within their rich native mobile app to enable "Zero Sign-On" from devices running Knox to their cloud-based applications. The Zero Sign-On goes beyond traditional SSO for devices enrolled in the Centrify Cloud Service, by allowing users one-click sign-on to enterprise apps without having to enter a username or password.
