Zones and Samsung Provide Secure Solutions for the Mobile Enterprise Workforce

Zones, Inc., today announced its authorization as a Platinum Reseller of the Samsung KNOX security platform for the Samsung Galaxy line of mobile devices.

KNOX is a multi-layered security technology that enables a secure and productive workspace for mobile professionals. Since its availability in September 2013, the KNOX platform has found wide acceptance around the world.

As a Platinum Reseller, Zones is authorized to provide the KNOX platform to organizations across a broad array of industries that rely on mobile devices in their corporate IT infrastructures.

“Zones is committed to helping customers select the most appropriate mobile solution for their business, and in today’s environment, security is at the cornerstone of this requirement. We are proud to offer Samsung KNOX to our customers,” said Greg Parsonson, vice president of Partner and Product Marketing at Zones. “Security is of paramount importance to all users, whether they are on a laptop, tablet or any other mobile device. Samsung KNOX offers a secure platform on which our customers can rely, extending and securing their enterprise and mobile infrastructures.”

Samsung KNOX provides leading device security, data and application protection technology used by industries around the globe. Key features of Samsung KNOX include:

--Multi-layered security built from the hardware up: KNOX offers a comprehensive set of defense-grade security features including rooting prevention and detection, real-time kernel protection, remote attestation, ARM TrustZone-based key store and certificate management and generalized VPN support including SSL and IPSec, On-Device Encryption and SE for Android and two-factor biometric authentication.

--Government certifications: KNOX has a growing list of demonstrated compliance certifications within the highly-regulated government and defense markets worldwide. No other android device can claim this level of acceptance. These certifications include MDFPP Common Criteria (NIAP), FIPS 104-2 Level 1 (NIST), STIG (DISA), UK EUD Security Guidance (CESG) and Finnish Security Auditing Criteria (FICORA).

--Separation of work and play with a hardware root of trust: KNOX provides a completely secure area on the device for work usage separate from the personal area of the device. The security properties of data and application protection of KNOX stem from a hardware layer root of trust built in during the device manufacturing process.

--Secure applications within the KNOX workspace: While all Android applications run in the KNOX workspace, KNOX allows custom designed applications to take advantage of TrustZone-based security features for applications to effortlessly leverage features like Trusted User Interface and biometric authentication.
