SOTI completes Samsung SAFE QA testing to achieve Samsung SAFE™ Status
MobiControl becomes an approved Samsung SAFE MDM solution, celebrating the continued collaboration between SOTI and Samsung
MISSISSAUGA, ON, Oct. 16, 2012 /CNW/ - SOTI Inc., the world's most trusted provider of Mobile Device Management (MDM) solutions, is proud to announce that they have completed Samsung's SAFE Quality Assurance testing for participation as a leading MDM solution in Samsung's SAFE program. Earlier this year, Samsung Telecommunications America (Samsung Mobile) launched their SAFE Program. SAFE mobile devices offer enhanced enterprise security and management capabilities.
To protect sensitive corporate information, SOTI's Mobile Device Management solution addresses the challenging management and security demands of corporations and empowers IT departments with advanced tools to centrally manage, secure, track and support mobile operations.
"Strong relationships with leading MDM providers like SOTI have provided our customers with a tremendous opportunity to leverage our highly desirable devices for both business and personal use", said Timothy Wagner, Vice President and General Manager of Enterprise Sales for Samsung Mobile. "SOTI MobiControl completed a series of tests with Samsung in order to receive the SAFE designation. By participating in Samsung's SAFE program, SOTI MobiControl ensures that a corporation's sensitive data is secured and protected when using Samsung mobile devices."
Carl Rodrigues, President and CEO of SOTI Inc., said, "SOTI is proud to be the first MDM vendor to have passed Samsung's rigorous SAFE certification process. Samsung's SAFE program is a reflection of Samsung's commitment to providing enterprise customers with not only great mobile devices, but also high quality solutions to manage, support and secure their mobile devices. They are dedicated to providing their customers with the best end-to-end experience. We are therefore extremely pleased to have successfully passed Samsung's SAFE Quality Assurance tests. This reaffirms the depth and quality of workmanship behind our MobiControl solution. We share a common interest with Samsung, we care about our customers and take great pride in the products we build."
