Absolute Software Announces Global Partnership with Samsung Electronics to Provide Enterprise Mobility Management and Theft Protection to GALAXY Mobile Devices
It is an exciting day for Absolute Software – today we announced we have entered into a strategic global partnership with Samsung Electronics.
Samsung will embed patented Absolute persistence technology into the firmware of Samsung GALAXY mobile devices as a feature of Samsung KNOX, which will be launched later this year. Samsung KNOX is the comprehensive mobile solution for work and play with security enhanced Android platform and application container. With firmware persistence, Samsung users can leverage Absolute Computrace® or Computrace LoJack® for Laptops to remotely track, manage and secure their Samsung GALAXY smartphones and tablets devices globally.
“We are excited to partner with the global mobile industry leader, Samsung, to provide enterprise mobility management and theft protection solutions for their devices,” said John Livingston, Chairman and CEO of Absolute Software. “With Samsung, the leading provider of smartphones and Android tablets, we are extending Absolute’s patented persistence technology across the full spectrum of smart connected mobile devices.”
Absolute Computrace provides organizations with foundational support for all activities related to governance, risk management and compliance (GRC) for the endpoint, allowing them to remotely secure all of their Samsung devices from a single cloud-based console. Devices can be remotely managed and secured on or off the network regardless of user or location. In addition, Samsung device users will be able to secure corporate data to safeguard against breaches, monitor device status, receive alerts and respond pre-emptively in case a device is deemed to be at risk. If a security incident occurs, the Absolute Investigations & Recovery Services Team can provide confidential insight and resolution including the provision of evidence to local law enforcement globally to aid in the recovery of the device.
