At the Mobile World Congress (MWC) 2014, Citrix today announced support for Intel Device Protection Technology (Intel DPT), enabling enterprises to secure and manage Intel-based Android mobile devices.
Intel DPT combined with Citrix XenMobile will provide enhanced hardware and software security and management capabilities, empowering IT organizations with increased levels of control without compromising end-user experience.
According to the Citrix “Mobility in Business” report, 72 percent of companies say they support or are planning to support Android this year. However, IT organizations are challenged with Android-based devices that are not compatible with their company’s security requirements.
Intel DPT with XenMobile will protect Intel-based mobile devices, apps and data on it. Intel-based devices with Intel DPT running Android OS have enhanced layers of security built in. XenMobile will fully leverage the manageability extensions for Android offered by Intel DPT.
Meanwhile, Citrix and Samsung Electronics today announced the availability of Citrix XenMobile for Samsung KNOX. The solution provides enterprise and government institutions with a high level of security controls. Citrix is also the EMM vendor with the largest number of apps verified to run on KNOX-enabled Samsung Galaxy devices.
