Samsung recently released new versions of its Galaxy smartphone—the S6 and the S6 Edge. Building on its reputation for attractive design and user-friendly features, Samsung has upped the ante with the S6 and S6 Edge’s faster and more powerful processor, radically improved camera, new HD display with increased clarity and colour contrast, as well as the convenience of wireless battery charging.
Mobile security at its best
The S6 and S6 Edge look good and perform well for consumers of all sorts—but they’re also great for employees who need to work efficiently, effectively and securely no matter where they may be. One of the most important improvements and additions to Samsung’s latest smartphone is KNOX 2.4, its sophisticated mobile security solution. KNOX 2.4 is included in every S6 or S6 Edge; no extra installation is required. In other words, the only thing employees need to do to securely access their corporate email and work files is to turn on their phone and quickly navigate to those programs with a few quick taps on the screen.
To access even more KNOX security capabilities, users can upgrade to either KNOX Express or KNOX Premium, both of which include the powerful KNOX Workspace. Rogers will shortly begin selling licences for this container—in the meantime, a Samsung-approved Mobile Device Management program, such as Air Watch or Citrix, can heighten device security.
The power of the container
Samsung created this new version of its mobile security technology specifically for people who use one device for both their professional and personal lives, to keep the data from both completely distinct and contained, and therefore safe from unauthorized access. In fact, the new KNOX container is easier to use than previous versions as well as being more secure: While employees will need to remember fewer passwords to access their work files and programs within the KNOX 2.4 container (Container Login using Active Directory), they can rely on this container to lock automatically when it’s out of proximity.
Working safely and better
As the Canadian workforce becomes increasingly mobile, businesses of all sizes need to know their employees are using devices made to support corporate security. The Samsung S6 and S6 Edge were built around this need—the need for devices powerful enough to enable employee productivity regardless of their location, but which are also secure enough to protect work files, data and systems anytime and anywhere.
The Samsung S6 and S6 Edge are among the many great enterprise-ready mobile devices available through Rogers. They may be included as key components in a comprehensive Mobile Device Management or Bring Your Own Device solution that Rogers can create to meet all your business’ and employees’ mobility needs.
