Samsung SAFEAt Mobile World Congress, Samsung detailed Knox, an addition to its SAFE (Samsung for Enterprise) initiative designed to give its Android devices an extra layer of security.

With Knox (as in Fort Knox), Samsung plans to up the ante in its push to limit the danger of malware, an issue that stubbornly continues to be a risk among a significant number of Android apps, particularly those not distributed via the Google Play store controlled by Google.

Building on that news, SAP announced its SAP Afaria mobile device management (MDM) software has achieved an expanded SAFE certification as part of its collaboration with Samsung.

SAP is Samsung’s largest SAFE-certified partner and co-developed the SAFE APIs. Although the majority of its employees use iPhones and iPads, the number of those using Samsung devices is growing. SAP currently has over 4,000 Samsung devices deployed among its employees around the world.

SAP Afaria provides features such as unified management of multiple device models, streamlined installation of email accounts and enhanced security policies, including application white/blacks and SD card enablement/encryption.
