Here’s a super short blog post, but the news is really big!
We’re really excited about our partnership with Samsung that was announced today.
Working together Samsung and Microsoft are enabling Samsung’s new set of devices running KNOX to natively “Workplace Join” to Windows Server Active Directory 2012 R2 (and soon to Windows Azure Active Directory). Additionally we’ve agreed to work together on enabling Intune to take full advantage of the KNOW MDM API’s. This combination will give Microsoft and Samsung’s joint customers the ability to incorporate Samsung devices securely into their enterprise environments giving employees the ability to access a wide range of on-premise and cloud based applications and resources from wherever they want to work on the devices they love to work on.
This partnership is a key milestone in our effort to turn Active Directory (on-premise and in the cloud) into the world’s preeminent identity management solution for the world of heterogeneous devices and clouds!
