End user benefits
Enrollment is quick and easy and will provide the end user with:
► Automated access to company email including calendar and contacts.
► Simple provisioning of company to company WiFi and VPN networks.
► Secure Single Sign-On to company and personal Web apps and native mobile apps.
► KNOX provides separation of company and personal apps and data ensuring privacy and protection for both the end user and IT.
► Self service management including lock, wipe and locate of their mobile devices through Centrify's Web-based user portal.
► Access to a private company app store for automatic installation of required company apps and a catalog of applications the user can choose to install.
Note: This Centrify app works in conjunction with our cloud based identity and access management / mobile management service. An administrator must enroll in the Centrify User Suite to configure access to company resources.
The Centrify app works with Centrify User Suite cloud-based services to enable organizations to quickly secure mobile devices with their existing technology investment, skill sets and processes without requiring additional infrastructure or new management tools and processes.
► Complete support for Samsung KNOX container management including create, delete, lock, wipe and a host of container configuration parameters and restrictions to ensure your organization's data remains secure within the Samsung KNOX container.
► Active Directory Group Policy-based or cloud-based user and device management. Centrify can use your on-premises Active Directory infrastructure and Group Policy-based management tools to enable you to easily enforce and update mobile security settings. Alternatively you can use Centrify's cloud service to manage your users and policies.
► Cloud-based service. The Centrify Cloud Service seamlessly allows your on-premise Active Directory environment to easily manage mobile devices over a trusted, over-the-air connection, whether or not a device is connected to the corporate network, thereby simplifying deployment without requiring costly new infrastructure.
► Single sign-on for Web applications. With Centrify User Suite SaaS Edition and the Centrify app, you can provide users with the same single sign-on experience for enterprise Web applications on their mobile device that they enjoy on their computer.
► Secure distribution of mobile applications. Using Centrify User Suite SaaS Edition you can provide a catalog of native mobile applications, personalized to your users’ role and needs. Installation is as simple as a single click in the Centrify app.
► Unified platform for mobile devices, Mac OS X and more. Centrify is the industry's only Active Directory integration solution that secures and manages not only mobile devices but also Mac OS X, UNIX and Linux systems, as well as Web and enterprise applications.
► Self-service and automation. Centrify Cloud Service quickly brings large populations of authorized devices under management with user self-service enrollment and automated configuration of each user's authentication credentials, thereby greatly reducing helpdesk volumes associated with mobile devices.
► Inventory devices. Centrify User Suite simplifies reporting of enrolled devices, installed applications and device update status across the entire organization.
Additional support for Samsung KNOX features:
- Split (Enterprise) Billing
- Common Criteria Mode
- Support for Cisco AnyConnect VPN
- Ability to specify app installation location (on the device or in the container)
Support for Web apps launched within the Centrify app that have special layouts for mobile device browsers.
Some devices have no default Web browser, so the Google Chrome browser is now installed into a KNOX container when the container is created.
