The platform establishes and maintains a secure transmission channel between Samsung's Knox container applications and the mobile Internet.Syntonic announced DataFlex for Enterprise, a security platform designed to manage employees’ use of Samsung Knox mobile devices and business applications. The platform establishes and maintains a secure transmission channel between Samsung’s Knox container applications and the mobile Internet, even over unsecured WiFi networks or from business apps that are sending data in the clear, the company said. With DataFlex for Enterprise, Knox Workspace devices are enabled to provide split data billing as a value-add service for Knox integrated enterprise mobility management (EMM) providers. Syntonic’s connected services platform can also support any application or Web service deployed within Knox’s enterprise-hardened, secure workspace environment. The platform can be incorporated into approved EMM vendor software as a value-add service to ensure compliance with regulatory and corporate policy.
Features include segmented department and employee- specific billing to separate and allocate personal and enterprise billing information. "There are multiple benefits to separating work and personal use. At its most basic level, the business needs to understand [how] mobile data is being used within the company," Gary Greenbaum, Syntonic CEO, told eWEEK. "With that insight, companies know where to invest, how to forecast, and budget by geography, department, or by application. Of course, the separation also makes it easy to save money."
