Gen-i named first global Samsung KNOX provider

Adds mobile solution to Managed Mobility Services

Telecom’s ICT services arm, Gen-i has been appointed the first services provider to globally pilot and distribute Samsung’s KNOX.

KNOX is a new mobile phone solution designed to securely partition work and play on Samsung’s Android devices. Its key feature is the KNOX Container which allows businesses to create a secure zone on employee handsets for corporate applications that is controlled by IT administrators, while providing a private zone as well. No data I shared between the two.

Only business applications can operate within the Container, which Samsung claims addresses concerns surrounding security in the mobile and bring-your-own-device (BYOD) world.

According to Gen-i chief operating officer (COO), Jo Allison, KNOX opens the consumer market to the corporate world as it enables executives and IT administrators to manage security, control of business applications, and employee privacy with one solution.

Gen-i ran a three-week trial of KNOX in September, incorporating user experience testing and intensive penetration testing of the KNOX Container’s security capabilities, and now offers it as part of its Managed Mobility Services.
