New release incorporates SAFE specific device restrictions and configurations

WALNUT, Calif., September 26, 2017 (Newswire.com) – Hexnode MDM, one of the most prominent players among the new generation Mobile Device Management vendors has announced support for the entire range of Samsung SAFE devices in their new release. Since the generic Android device administration APIs support only basic management features, MDMs usually have to integrate the product with OEM specific APIs. The SAFE features impart better and advanced management functionalities to the MDM.

Samsung introduced the enterprise-oriented solution called SAFE (Samsung for enterprise) for enhancing the security and management features that normal Android devices lack. Hexnode, who has previously added support to supervision features, the iOS alternative for enterprise-specific functionalities like SAFE. Partnering with Samsung through the Samsung Enterprise Alliance Program (SEAP), Hexnode developed platform support for SAFE for the advanced management of SAFE equipped devices. What attracts customers to Samsung SAFE is the security aspect of it, which makes the combination of MDM and SAFE a reliable source to trust the work devices with. Hexnode has also started integrating with LG enterprise solution, GATE.

“The integration of Samsung SAFE in Hexnode MDM means more features, more control and more security over SAFE devices. This also gives an edge to the product and more is always great. Great is what we intend to deliver,” -said Apu Pavithran, the CEO of Hexnode. Hexnode has been releasing product versions which supported Samsung SAFE for a while now, but the new release — version 5.3.4 brought out a whole range of device restrictions. This version also adds some GATE specific features for LG devices.

“Hexnode is all about simplifying Mobile Device Management. The SAFE feature set makes the product more appealing for the enterprise customers for sure. Even though other MDMs offer the same solution, what makes Hexnode unique is its simplicity. No matter how big the product gets, it will always be user friendly,”– added Sahad M, the chief Product Manager and CTO of Hexnode.

  • Advanced restriction set for SAFE devices
