Citrix and Samsung Deliver Android Enterprise Security on Latest Samsung Galaxy Devices
BARCELONA, Spain --(Business Wire)--
Citrix and Samsung (News - Alert) Electronics Co., Ltd. today announced the
availability of Citrix
XenMobile™ for Samsung KNOX, delivering one of the most advanced
Android (News - Alert) security solutions for managing the latest Samsung KNOX-enabled
devices. The solution provides enterprise and government institutions
with a high level of security controls. Citrix is also the EMM vendor
with the largest number of apps verified to run on KNOX-enabled Samsung
The integration of Samsung KNOX with XenMobile and other Citrix
technologies protect the device, its apps and data, and the networks
employees use to access corporate resources-all while giving IT
administrators full, centralized visibility and control. Additionally,
with just one simple touch, Samsung Galaxy mobile device users can have
secure, real time access to all the business tools, including mobile,
web, Windows and SaaS (News - Alert) apps, to be productive on the go.
Unlike other EMM vendors, the integration between Citrix and Samsung
allows enterprises to deliver a true office experience by providing
access to hosted virtual desktops on secured Samsung mobile devices as
part of the Samsung Smart Office solution. This is made possible using
the Samsung Smart Dock with large screen monitors together with Citrix
XenDesktop®, Citrix XenApp®, and Citrix Receiver for Android. This
capability allows users' desktop, apps and data to follow them wherever
they go, enabling greater device portability and empowering user
flexibility and choice.
In addition, Citrix boasts a wide variety of productivity, collaboration
and communication apps verified to run on the Samsung KNOX platform.
KNOX users can download their favorite Citrix apps, like Citrix
Receiver™, Citrix ShareFile®, Citrix GoToMeeting®, Citrix GoToAssist®,
Citrix GoToMyPC® and Citrix Podio™ easily from the Samsung KNOX Apps
