Introducing the Knox Validated program for Enterprise Mobility Management (EMM) Solutions!

Morgan Parker

Samsung’s Knox Validated program was announced at the Samsung Developer Conference in October 2019 as a main component of the newly launched Samsung Knox Partner Program. ‘Knox Validated’ is designed to provide our customers with confidence in a partner solution’s full support of Samsung’s latest security and management features and products. Validated partner solutions will also be further promoted by Samsung in our sales and marketing efforts. We are happy to announce we are now open and accepting partner solutions for validation, and are proud to present our first Knox Validated solution partners: VMware, BlackBerry, SOTI, MobileIron, IBM, Knox Manage and Proget. We share our partners' enthusiasm for the launch of the program, and are happy to share some quotes from a few of our Knox Validated partners:

“Samsung and VMware share a commitment to providing customers with leading digital workspace solutions, and we are thrilled Samsung recognizes and endorses Workspace ONE UEM as a comprehensive, enterprise-secure digital workspace platform through its Knox Validated program.” said Bharath Rangarajan, Vice President of Product Management, End-User Computing, VMware.

"For SOTI, Samsung Knox Validation certification is another milestone along our long-standing journey with Samsung,” said Mustafa Ebadi, Chief Operating Officer, SOTI. “Knox integration with the SOTI ONE Platform provides best in class mobility management to our most highly regulated customers, helping them take complete control of their business critical operations, with industry leading security and innovation.”

“Achieving the Samsung Knox Validated certification is a testament to IBM’s industry leading support of the Samsung Knox security platform and products” said Mitt Sharma, IBM Security Offering Manager for MaaS360. “Samsung device growth is significant across industries in our client base and IBM Security MaaS360 support for Knox Platform for Enterprise unlocks the security and productivity benefits our customers are demanding. This validation is another example of our solution being tested for the most critical and demanding use cases.”

Samsung tests our partner’s Enterprise Mobility Management (EMM), Mobile Device Management (MDM), and Unified Endpoint Management (UEM) solution against a comprehensive set of criteria. The solutions that pass all mandatory requirements are verified and endorsed by Samsung as having implemented the latest key features of Samsung Knox products, such as Knox Platform for Enterprise and Knox Mobile Enrollment, and also doing so following best practices and in the most user friendly ways.

These solutions will be highlighted by Samsung online with the Knox Validated logo and through our sales channels to signify their leading Samsung Knox support.

“In 2015 BlackBerry and Samsung established a partnership with the goal of delivering an integrated endpoint security and management solution exceeding the demands of the world’s most highly regulated enterprises,” commented Vito Giallorenzo, BlackBerry Senior Vice President, Corporate Development and Strategic Partnerships. “We are proud to be one of the inaugural Knox Validated solution partners, thus reinforcing our joint product strategy with Samsung to deliver a secure and cutting edge platform for mobile transformation. We look forward to continued collaboration as we extend the BlackBerry Spark Unified Endpoint Security Platform.”
