Citrix and Samsung ups security on latest samsung galaxy devices

Citrix and Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd. today announced the availability of Citrix XenMobile for Samsung KNOX, delivering one of the most advanced Android 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 Galaxy devices.

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 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 GoToMeetingCitrix GoToAssist, Citrix GoToMyPC and Citrix Podioeasily from the Samsung KNOX Apps Store.
