Samsung and Ercom have entered into a partnership to provide a new generation security solution

Samsung smartphones are equipped with KNOX and Ercom Cryptosmart for secure voice and data communications.

Monaco, September 30, 2015 – Governments and corporations require very high levels of security. To protect smartphones and tablets against various hacking and spying techniques, Samsung and Ercom have joined forces to offer complete protection for voice and data communications, and applications for mobile devices.

This solution is based on Samsung devices that have been equipped with security solutions for several years (VPN, encryption, IT Policies…), and the Samsung KNOX security solution used by numerous government organizations and security agencies.

It integrates the Ercom Cryptosmart solution, certified “Restricted Distribution” by the National Agency for the Security of Information Systems (ANSSI), providing endpoint security to the French government.

This partnership between two market leaders offers government organizations and businesses an unparalleled level of security to conduct their sensitive activities. Integrating Cryptosmart with the KNOX platform will allow users to take advantage of new features such as business data containerization.

“This joint development offers our customers an outstanding platform, integrating government-grade security with the usability of the preferred smartphone on the market. Further standardizing our solution will enable faster response to market needs and will strengthen our offering for demanding customers,” declared Yannick Dupuch, CEO, Ercom.

“This partnership will allow critical organizations to access latest generation terminals as soon as they are released to the market. Combining the expertise of our two companies also boosts the development of Samsung

Business in supporting organizations concerned with security,” added Thibaut Felgères, Director, Samsung Business France.
