Samsung punta sul mondo enterprise col lancio di Good for Samsung KNOX
Google stenta ancora nel presentare il suo Android Work, del quale finora abbiamo visto solo timide apparizioni a dispetto del sito ufficiale, e Samsung non rimane certo a guardare, lanciando un nuovo ecosistema di app per accelerare l'adozione di Android in ambito enterprise ed incrementare la produttività in mobilità.

Realizzato in collaborazione con Good Technology, Good for Samsung KNOX crea un dominio "Good-Secured" nei sistemi Android con KNOX, dove possono essere usate le Good app, Good-secured app, o app di terze parti garantita da Good Dynamics. Good dal canto suo fornirà ampio supporto per il set di API di Knox.
La mossa non è di grande interesse per il mercato consumer, ma è forse un assaggio di quello che avremo tra un mese con Galaxy S6, che potrebbe avere funzioni di sicurezza avanzate, anche in congiunzione sempre più probabile lancio di Samsung Pay, il sistema di pagamenti mobili del colosso coreano. A seguire il comunicato stampa originale.
