Android Gets Enterprise Security With Lookout-Samsung Alliance

Stuart Parkerson Stuart Parkerson in Enterprise Thursday, September 5, 2013

Lookout is increasing its footprint in enterprise mobility with a new partnership with Samsung and a soon to be released standalone business product. Lookout has announced it will provide integrated support to the Samsung Knox, an Android-based end-to-end mobile security solution that provides security hardening from the hardware through to the application layer.

Lookout has also announced plans to rollout a standalone business product, Lookout for Business, later this year.

Lookout’s contribution to the KNOX platform will include real-time, cloud-based scanning to protect against mobile threats from email attachments, web browsing, and any type of file sharing services.

Samsung’s KNOX platform is an isolated and secure environment within mobile devices, featuring its own home screen, launcher, applications, and widgets. Among the abilities of the KNOX platform is its capacity to create a secure zone on Android powered devices for corporate applications and data. The user’s personal apps and data remain outside the secure zone and are thus kept private.

Enterprise app developers benefit from the KNOX platform through the ability to automatically gain enterprise-grade security for data storage and transmission without new development. Samsung KNOX relieves application developers from having to develop enterprise features such as FIPS-compliant VPN, on-device encryption (ODE), and enterprise Single Sign On (SSO).
