Samsung closing in on Apple in enterprise security
Samsung is striving hard to become a bigger player in the enterprise market. The company’s Knox security solution for mobile devices has been very well-received, and it recently partnered with IBM and BlackBerry to improve security on its smartphones and tablets. Now, a new report claims that Samsung is closing in on Apple regarding BYOD and enterprise security.
According to a report by Tech Pro Research, Samsung devices are approaching Apple levels in the enterprise market. However, vendors seem to think that Apple devices are much more secure than Samsung devices. The report shows Apple clearly winning the enterprise market right now, but Samsung has been able to project its devices as enterprise-friendly, thanks to its Knox and other security solutions.
The report states that Samsung is the best shot at the adoption of Android in the enterprise market. Moreover, BlackBerry could also help Android in the enterprise market with the help of its security intellectual property and legacy inside enterprises.
