Trustonic and Samsung KNOX Announce Partnership to Enable the Next Generation of High Trust, High Value Services

Trustonic, the leading provider of Trusted
Execution Environments (TEEs) for smart devices, today announced a
partnership with Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd, a leader in mobile
technology and digital solutions. As a result of this partnership,
Samsung smartphones and tablets will now deliver a secure, trusted
platform upon which service providers can innovate to deliver an
enriched, simplified and consistent user experience.
At the heart of this partnership is Samsung KNOX, Samsung’s end-to-end
secure enterprise mobility solution designed to provide advanced data
and privacy protection for both enterprises and consumers. The Trustonic
TEE adds a hardware-isolated foundation to KNOX in order to secure the
platform and the services running within it. The KNOX App Developer
Eco-system will now be able to utilize best-in-class hardware-backed
security features made accessible through the Trustonic ‹t™-base TEE.
“Samsung has already deployed more than 150 million devices that use
Trustonic ‹t™-base TEE technology to underpin the integrity of the KNOX
platform.” Said Injong Rhee, Senior Vice President of KNOX Business, IT
& Mobile Communications Division at Samsung Electronics. “With these new
advanced capabilities, we are strengthening the KNOX eco-system to
develop new and innovative apps built on a more secure platform and
exploring market opportunities in all segments on existing and future
Hardware-based security has traditionally been isolated, limited, and
locked down at the point of manufacture to a single use case or industry
stakeholder. This partnership unlocks a new set of secure service
availability for developers and is designed to protect applications and
data from software based attacks. Services can be protected from the
cloud to the device, including user interactions with touchscreens,
displays and fingerprint sensors.
The partnership will also bring important new capabilities to devices
for the first time, including a Trusted User Interface, which simplifies
user authentication by enabling simpler passwords, protects against
attempts at click-jacking, and increases end user confidence that
transaction approvals are genuine. Furthermore, Trustonic ‹t™-base TEE
allows additional secure functions to be added when needed, allowing
application developers to access advanced security capabilities without
the need to embed components prior to manufacture of the device.
“The Trustonic developer ecosystem has grown ten-fold since launching
six months ago and we now have partners building trust-enhanced services
across enterprise, content, commerce and identity verticals." said Ben
Cade, CEO of Trustonic. “We are excited to partner with Samsung and see
these innovative services come to life across the Samsung
device portfolio and we look forward to helping Samsung KNOX partners
deliver the industry’s most compelling enterprise solutions."
The partnership ensures the most demanding of government, enterprise and
financial services clients have a complete, powerful platform
incorporating strong user authentication, single sign-on, secure
tokenisation, and enhanced trust for mobile device management. In
adopting KNOX, enterprises and enterprise service providers are able to
utilize all the benefits of both KNOX and Trustonic ‹t™-base TEE for
highly secure, high value enterprise grade productivity on a broad range
of Samsung devices including Galaxy S4 and Note 3. Further, these new
capabilities present the opportunity to deliver trust-enhanced services
and to enrich, simplify and expand people’s “everyday” digital lives in
areas such as privacy, commerce, banking, premium content consumption,
health, and identity.
Starting today, developers will have the opportunity to take advantage
of these capabilities by joining the Trustonic ‹t™-base TEE developer
partner program. KNOX partners can access this program on special terms.
Trustonic integrates hardware-level security and trust directly into the
devices through which we access today’s connected world. Trustonic
simplifies user experiences in everything from mobile shopping and
Internet banking to entertainment to collaborating in the workplace.
