New mobile security solution for Samsung

Samsung Electronics South Africa and Good Technology will introduce 'Good Secure Domain' on the Samsung KNOX platform in the second half of 2014.
This advanced mobile security solution for Samsung mobile devices combines Knox, Samsung's end-to-end secure mobile platform solution, with the market-leading Good secure container and Good-secured apps.

Mobile app ecosystem

The unique 'Good Secure Domain' will allow customers to deploy Good's broad mobile app ecosystem and app-level security, while leveraging Knox's Android OS and hardware security solution.

"Good Technology is the first partner to be afforded a secure domain on Knox-enabled devices and we believe this integration will further accelerate Android adoption for our enterprise customers," said Paulo Ferreira, head of enterprise mobility, Samsung South Africa. "We are excited to be able to offer customers a solution that combines Knox hardware- and OS-level security with the Good secure container and app ecosystem."

Data protection

"This is a win for both company's customers. Good's apps and container security layer have a unique place in the Knox stack. Good Technology customers can now benefit from Knox's hardware- and OS- level security," said Christy Wyatt, president and CEO, Good Technology. "Samsung customers can enable the Good secure container as the mobile app security and management stack on Knox devices and leverage the entire Good ecosystem of business productivity apps."

Good for Enterprise is the only email app for Android that has attained a Common Criteria EAL-4+ certification in addition to FIPS 140-2 validated encryption, offering a higher level of data protection and app security for Android devices. Samsung KNOX introduces security for Android at the hardware and operating system level. Combined with Knox's 'Root of Trust' security model, the 'Good Secure Domain' on Knox satisfies the requirements of even the most security-conscious organisations.
