Onvelop Adopts Newly Announced Samsung KNOX Security System

Samsung KNOX Enhances Onvelop's Breakthrough Enterprise Mobility Platform

MOUNTAIN VIEW, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 02/26/13 -- Onvelop -- an enterprise mobility platform that utilizes licensed Microsoft protocols to provide secure access to enterprise communication and collaboration suites such as SharePoint, Lync and Office 365 from smartphones and tablets across multiple operating systems like iOS, Android and Windows 8 -- announces its collaboration with the Samsung KNOX solution Samsung announced earlier today. Samsung KNOX is an end-to-end secure solution that provides security hardening from the hardware through to the application layer. The Samsung KNOX retains full compatibility with Android and the Google ecosystem while engineering fundamental security and management enhancements, including its unique application container technology which enables enterprises to support both BYOD and Corporate-Liable models without compromising corporate security or employee privacy. Onvelop's OEM partnership with Samsung offers the platform incredible reach and provides Samsung with a ready extension into the enterprise-mobility market.

Onvelop is one of the first enterprise-mobility products to take advantage of the Samsung KNOX 's comprehensive and consolidated solution for enterprises. It allows users to manage work and personal lives separately on a single Android device with enterprise-ready data isolation that protects personal data from company oversight. This partnership brings a new era of enterprise mobility and BYOD for organizations using Office 365, SharePoint and Lync on server-side solutions.

Onvelop, which launched this January under the mobile-engineering product and service firm AgreeYa Mobility, headquartered in Mountain View, Calif., is an intuitive, unified collaboration and communication platform that enables secure access to Office 365, SharePoint and Lync from mobile devices. Onvelop allows unparalleled productivity and flexibility for users and complete security and control for the enterprises that implement it.

Onvelop's patented and unique user experience brings enterprise mobility and BYOD to business consumers by providing an Onvelop dashboard with feeds for activities, announcements and events on the mobile device. Users enjoy one-stop access to the business tools they need to review SharePoint documents, create events and announcements in SharePoint, chat, call via Lync/OCS, have an Onvelop review meeting online via chat or call conferencing, check out and update documents from SharePoint, and check them back in to SharePoint so that updates become available to other enterprise users in the same network -- all from the mobile device. Android smartphone and tablet users can download a free trial version of Onvelop from Google Play. It's also available for purchase at Google Play, Appstore and through reselling partner Vodafone.

"With its Samsung KNOX solution, Samsung will revolutionize the way Android devices are used for enterprise mobility," says Krish Kupathil, CEO of AgreeYa Mobility. "And Onvelop will leverage Samsung KNOX to provide enterprises with secure, unified collaboration and communication."

Onvelop has constructed a seamless functionality for both enterprises and end users, allowing single sign-on and password access and handling data security, data encryption and active directory while upholding existing company security and access restrictions and without requiring any other MDM license or solution.

With Samsung KNOX providing bolstered handset security, the platform allays fears about data security and control -- major concerns for CIOs -- and even provides enterprise administrators with a Web-based dashboard for easy remote license management and enterprise-data control on the Onvelop platform.

Onvelop 365 supports Samsung Android tablets with Honeycomb and later, Samsung Android smartphones with Ice Cream Sandwich and later and iPads with 5.0.x and later. Onvelop On-Premise supports SharePoint 2007, SharePoint 2010, RDP for XP, 2008 R2 server, Office 365, OCS 2007 and Lync 2010. Onvelop also supports Office 365 for Education, allowing students and faculty to communicate and collaborate from mobile devices.

"Onvelop and Samsung KNOX are ideal partners," says Dr. Injong Rhee, Senior Vice President, B2B R&D at Samsung Electronics. "Together, we're providing a new level of functionality that will satisfy enterprises and their employees, along with the robust security that keeps them confident that their personal and proprietary data is always safe. It is about extending Onvelop's full power of collaboration and communication to the end user, while allowing the IT department to maintain the control and security that they need through Samsung KNOX."

Internet-of-Things discussions can end up either going down the consumer gadget rabbit hole or focused on the sort of data logging that industrial manufacturers have been doing forever. However, in fact, companies today are already using IoT data both to optimize their operational technology and to improve the experience of customer interactions in novel ways. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Gordon Haff, Red Hat Technology Evangelist, shared examples from a wide range of industries – including en...
Detecting internal user threats in the Big Data eco-system is challenging and cumbersome. Many organizations monitor internal usage of the Big Data eco-system using a set of alerts. This is not a scalable process given the increase in the number of alerts with the accelerating growth in data volume and user base. Organizations are increasingly leveraging machine learning to monitor only those data elements that are sensitive and critical, autonomously establish monitoring policies, and to detect...
To get the most out of their data, successful companies are not focusing on queries and data lakes, they are actively integrating analytics into their operations with a data-first application development approach. Real-time adjustments to improve revenues, reduce costs, or mitigate risk rely on applications that minimize latency on a variety of data sources. Jack Norris reviews best practices to show how companies develop, deploy, and dynamically update these applications and how this data-first...
