AUSTIN, Texas, March 4, 2015  HID Global®, a worldwide leader in secure identity solutions, has partnered with Samsung to provide enterprises with a secure and seamless management and door opening experience via the robust KNOX 2.4 mobile platform that will be integrated into the new Samsung Galaxy S6 smart phone.  Enterprises can now deploy HID Mobile Access® using Samsung’s advanced Android secure mobility platform in combination with Seos®, a secure, privacy-protecting mobile access platform.

The Seos-powered mobile access solution addresses both security and privacy, key concerns in mobility management strategies for enterprises intent on securing people, buildings and assets.  “Mobility is a top priority for organizations because more employees than ever before are demanding access to the apps and data that will make them productive on-the-go. Whether using their own devices or a corporate-owned device, employees can use this integrated solution to access their workplace conveniently and securely,” said Debra Spitler, Vice President, Strategic Alliances with HID Global.  “We are pleased to partner with Samsung to deliver a versatile secure solution for mobile access across the enterprise.” 

Users can quickly download the HID Mobile Access App to their Samsung mobile device and access doors and gates via NFC or Bluetooth Smart by interacting with iCLASS SE® readers from HID Global.  In addition, administrators can issue and revoke Mobile IDs via the HID Secure Identity Services™ portal. 

“By partnering with HID Global, Samsung is able to provide enterprise IT departments with the ability to leverage the Samsung KNOX platform when implementing HID Mobile Access,” said Rick Segal, Vice President of Enterprise Business Team, IT & Mobile Communications Division at Samsung Electronics.  “This capability allows enterprises to push the HID Mobile Access application and profile directly to the user’s KNOX container resulting in a highly secure solution.”
