Centrify Partners

Centrify and Samsung

Centrify and Samsung have strategically collaborated to provide key enabling technology for Samsung KNOX — a next generation Android-based enterprise mobility platform

Samsung KNOX is a comprehensive enterprise platform comprised of innovative mobile device security and management services. Samsung KNOX Workspace provides robust Samsung mobile device security using hardware and software integrated features. Samsung KNOX EMM (Enterprise Mobility Management) is a cloud service with integrated mobile device management (MDM), mobile application management (MAM), and identity and access management (IAM) features for cross-platform devices.

Centrify is the key OEM technology provider for the cloud and mobile identity management capabilities of KNOX EMM.

How Centrify Is Leveraged within Samsung KNOX

Samsung chose to partner with Centrify recognizing that Centrify has a key differentiator in the market today — a cloud and mobile first solution combining enterprise mobile and identity and access management features from the ground-up. Samsung wanted an innovator in this space that resulted in a highly integrated solution, instead of coupling different capabilities together.

Centrify Technologies Being Leveraged in Samsung KNOX EMM

Leveraging the broad set of technologies within Centrify User Suite, Samsung is delivering the industry's only EMM offering that combines cloud-based MDM with identity federation for mobile and SaaS apps.

KNOX IAM is a paid, cloud identity solution that provides businesses with cross-platform single sign-on, role-based access management, user provisioning, multi-factor authentication and password vault for 2500+ SaaS and mobile applications.

Centrify is also integrated as the de-facto cloud IAM service for SaaS and mobile apps purchased via the new KNOX Marketplace.

Application Developers Benefit from the KNOX Single Sign-On SDK

Centrify helps Samsung customers build, deploy and secure in-house, custom and ISV apps with an easy-to-use developer kit for enabling SSO for mobile apps. Centrify has licensed its Mobile Authentication Services (MAS) SDK into the KNOX SDK Framework.

The Centrify Mobile Authentication Service (MAS) is an innovative SDK that enables any Android app developer or SaaS ISV to easily equip their rich mobile app with enterprise-grade security and provide a "zero sign-on" experience for end users. ISVs such as Box, Dropbox, Accellion and Onvelop are part of a growing ecosystem of partners enhancing their apps using the KNOX SSO SDK.
