Speaking about the partnership, Mathivanan Venkatachalam, Director of Product management at ManageEngine, said, “In 2013, we partnered with Samsung to support SAFE devices. Now, we’re adding KNOX capability to elevate that partnership one step further. This enhanced security feature helps IT teams exercise precise control over the corporate data accessed by employees. And it provides flexible mobile device management operations without compromising on data security.”
