Microsoft and Samsung launch Advanced Mobile Security Solution


Microsoft and Samsung Technology have joined forces to enhance mobile device security for enterprises. This collaboration has resulted in the world’s first mobile hardware-based device attestation, which verifies the identity and integrity of the device.

In simpler terms, an attestation solution means a device that can authenticate another device’s trusted state. This helps security administrators ensure that the information stored on the device remains well-protected.

In practicality, such a solution is incredibly beneficial in enterprise environments. It enables the device to communicate with connected services or networks, assuring them that it is genuine, secure, and compliant with all necessary business security standards.

For those interested in implementing Zero Trust Security Models, the integration of Samsung Galaxy Devices with Microsoft’s Intune Protection offers an excellent security framework capable of defending against even the most sophisticated cyber threats.

Samsung’s Galaxy devices, powered by the Knox Security platform, have already been revolutionized to achieve utmost security. By collaborating with Microsoft technology, Samsung Galaxy users can now benefit from Unified Endpoint Management and a Comprehensive Security Solution, promoting employee flexibility.

NOTE 1: In the rapidly evolving mobile landscape, corporate companies are increasingly adopting Zero Trust models with three core principles – assuming breach, explicit verification, and offering least privileged access. Implementing such principles enables firms to excel, even in regulated industries and the public sector.

NOTE 2: As of January 2023, Samsung Knox protects over 30,000 businesses in more than 110 markets from device attacks. Microsoft’s integration with Samsung offers an end-to-end cloud-based cross-platform security solution that ensures compliance, device management, and privacy, safeguarding BYOD devices from over 65 trillion threats.
