By introducing the Samsung Knox Marketplace, Samsung has proven to care about the use of Samsung’s mobile device for both personal use and work.
The KNOX software, that is especially developed for Samsung’s mobile devices, offers business apps that can be installed on your personal device while keeping high-risk company information and data completely safe.
This is extremely interesting for large companies, where IT managers can install and buy a considerable amount of preconfigured product bundles at once [via TechCrunch].
Will Samsung beat Blackberry and become the number 1 provider to offer companies mobile business solutions? ASO Stealth says yes!
What are your thoughts? Do you think the Samsung KNOX Marketplace is safe enough for companies to use with a large amount of high-risk data? Let us know!
An Enterprise App Store, or simply EAS, is an online app store on which employees can download and install certain apps that are approved by the company. This way, the company can closely supervise the usage of the application and the licensing and distribution of the apps.
The reason why the surveillance over these enterprise apps and its usage in the office is so important, is because these are not the “ordinary” apps you see in the app store. These apps are important for the company’s productivity. Examples are customer list management apps and purchase order generators.
Now why should companies have these EAS? The biggest advantage is the control that the company will have over marketing, selling and distributing their products/services. All the needed applications can be found in one spot, which will make it easier to detect any problems and fix them quickly. The risk of processes going wrong is hereby reduced.
