Mocana FIPS 140-2 Validated KeyVPN(TM) Product Secures Data Communications for New Samsung KNOX

SAN FRANCISCO, Apr 02, 2013 (BUSINESS WIRE)
– Mocana, the mobile security leader, today announced that Samsung has integrated Mocana's KeyVPN(TM) product into Samsung's new KNOX security solution that addresses the mobile security needs of enterprise IT. KeyVPN's multi-VPN technology enables the Samsung KNOX solution to segregate and secure corporate data, addressing the growing trend of Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) in global enterprises.

"Mocana is a trusted technology partner for enterprise security. With Mocana's VPN technology, Samsung KNOX enterprise customers can have a high level of confidence in the security of their data-in-motion," said Dr. Injong Rhee, Senior Vice President, Technology Strategy Group at Samsung Electronics.

Kurt Stammberger, CISSP, Vice President of Market Development for Mocana, said, "By using KeyVPN technology, Samsung KNOX advances to the front of the line for secure enterprise and BYOD purchase decisions."

Debuted at Mobile World Congress (MWC) 2013 in Barcelona, Samsung KNOX aligns with the ongoing Samsung for Enterprise (SAFE) program as part of a continued effort to promote the readiness of its devices for enterprise use. By incorporating Security Enhanced (SE) Android(TM) and integrity management services that are implemented in both hardware and the Android framework, Samsung KNOX offers a container solution that separates business and personal use of a mobile device, and provides reassurance and convenience for IT departments looking to implement and manage BYOD strategies. Easily accessible via an application icon on the home screen, the Samsung KNOX container presents a variety of enterprise applications in a secure environment, including email, browser, contact, calendar, file sharing, collaboration, CRM and business intelligence applications. These business applications can be integrated with Mocana's KeyVPN virtual private networking software by IT manager's decision.

Mocana KeyVPN is a complete, full-featured virtual private network solution with a simple GUI that is designed to allow manufacturers like Samsung to easily integrate VPN functionality into Android devices that need to encrypt communications for business. KeyVPN is based on Mocana's award-winning NanoSec(TM) code base, which has been certified by the VPN consortium (VPNC) for interoperability with all leading VPN gateway appliances and vendors. KeyVPN features automatic VPN initiation, multiple gateway handling to connect to multiple VPNs, network-to-network roaming and handoff, and advanced split-tunneling capabilities that improve user control and battery life.
