Mobitel, has been appointed as the sole official reseller of Samsung Knox by Samsung Electronics Ltd. in Sri Lanka. 

Samsung Knox is a comprehensive Enterprise Mobility Management (EMM) security solution that ensures enterprise customers such as financial institutions, law firms, government agencies and businesses have a high level of security and protection when employees use their own mobile devices at work or use their work devices as part of their everyday life. 

Samsung Knox will fulfil a long-felt need for such a security solution for businesses which need a high level of confidentiality and security of information. 

Samsung Knox is specifically designed for Android-based Samsung phones and provides enhanced security at the Operating System level to prevent malware attacks. IT administrators can ensure the security of corporate data and remotely manage devices and offer support, without invading the privacy of employee’s personal data. 

Simply out, Samsung Knox offers a secure environment within the mobile device, complete with its own home screen, launcher, applications, and widgets; a powerful solution to the “data leakage” problem associated with employees using their own device for work; and enhanced security for open-source Android platform, for protection against external threats and malware.

Knox also includes the option of separate bills to pay for personal and business use of the device. The separate bills for personal data usage and work calls can be segmented by the personal usage being charged to the end user and work usage to be charged directly to the company.

The benefits to clients adopting Samsung Knox area greater cost control, as cloud-based EMM solutions have the potential to control the costs associated with supporting and managing your mobile workforce. Also, Cloud-based EMM solutions have simple deployments and can be operational very quickly. They integrate into the existing infrastructure and offer secure mobile control without the installation and management of on-premises hardware which makes maintenance simple as well. 

The solution provides enhanced security as well. A strong EMM solution will mitigate the security risks associated with the cloud by securing the mobile workforce; storing sensitive data in existing corporate systems (rather than in the cloud); and enforcing encryption when sensitive data is in transit and at rest.

Samsung Knox will be marketed in Sri Lanka by Mobitel Business Solutions (MBS), which is a dedicated division of Mobitel formulated to cater the corporate clients with unique ICT solutions embraced with mobile technologies to realize their fullest business potential.MBS could be contacted through the hotline 0711 717171 or email
