New mobile security container and app ecosystem to accelerate enterprise Android adoption and mobile productivity

Samsung and Good Technology today announced the immediate availability of Good for Samsung KNOX, merging Good’s market-leading app container and broad app ecosystem with the Samsung KNOX enterprise security platform for Android.

The launch of Good for Samsung KNOX represents the next step in the partnership between Samsung and Good to deliver world-class mobile enterprise security solutions, first announced at Mobile World Congress 2014.

This joint solution creates the most secure solution for enterprises and government agencies looking to accelerate their Android programs to drive secure mobile productivity. Good is now the only enterprise mobility management (EMM) provider whose secure container platform and app ecosystem is integrated directly into the KNOX security stack.

Good for Samsung KNOX creates a Good-secured domain within KNOX’s security-enhanced Android operating system, where any Good apps, Good-secured apps or custom apps secured by the Good Dynamics Secure Mobility Platform reside. Good also provides comprehensive support for KNOX’s extended mobile device management (MDM) API set.

“The largest companies in the world trust Good Technology as the secure mobility leader, including all of the Fortune 100 commercial banks and other industry leading companies in over 190 countries,” said Christy Wyatt, chairman and CEO of Good Technology.

“By partnering with Samsung to integrate our container and secure app ecosystem with the KNOX platform, we are delivering a comprehensive, layered solution to secure Samsung Android devices in the enterprise.”

Good leads in business productivity innovation with secure mobile apps for SharePoint and file access, enterprise instant messaging, Intranet access and mobile Salesforce CRM access, as well as the recently announced Good Work app, the next generation of business-class collaboration with industry-leading security and mobile-optimized performance.

Samsung KNOX is currently the only Android provider of defense-grade and government-certified mobile security complying with key U.S. Government and Department of Defense (DoD) initiatives and other standards for mobile device security. This enables its deployment in government and other highly regulated enterprise environments. The Samsung KNOX platform received the STIG approval from the U.S. Defense Information Systems Agency to use in U.S. DoD networks in May 2013 and was upgraded to STIG version 2 in April 2014.

“Together, Samsung and Good are addressing the growing importance of mobility management for enterprises by delivering a secure mobile productivity solution for Android that will relieve organizations of past concerns with Android adoption such as rooting, viruses and malware,” said Injong Rhee, executive vice president of enterprise business, IT and mobile business at Samsung Electronics.

“The combination of Samsung and Good represents the best solution for secure enterprise Android productivity – no matter whether corporate-liable, COPE or BYOD device ownership models are being used.”

Good Technology has long been a leader in secure mobility on Android, and Good for Enterprise is still the first and only EMM solution to attain Common Criteria EAL-4+ certification for secure email and collaboration apps on Android. Like Samsung, Good has also attained DoD approvals and Authority to Operate (ATOs) across multiple defense agencies.
