The FINANCIAL — SAMSUNG RECENTLY RECEIVED two 2017 CRN Tech Innovator Awards, which were developed to honor groundbreaking companies that successfully translate cutting-edge technology into impactful products and services for today’s enterprise users.
The Samsung Galaxy Book took home an Innovator Award in the Mobile Devices category, for its “major upgrades,” according to CRN, including the redesigned keyboard complemented by what CRN called Samsung’s “excellent displays with the bright and colorful Super AMOLED, FHD+ screen.” CRN also noted the Galaxy Book comes with a digital pen, powerful processor and memory.
“As a company that is constantly working to innovate to better serve customers, it is an honor to be recognized by CRN in two mobile categories,” said Michael Coleman, vice president of B2B Mobile Channel for Samsung Electronics America.
Samsung Knox 2.9, the latest edition of Samsung’s award-winning, defense-grade, mobile security platform, also won an Innovator Award in the Mobile Security category. CRN highlighted the platform’s new capabilities, including remote backup to the Secure Folder feature, which enables users to access or wipe the Secure Folder’s data if the device is lost, and App Permission Monitoring, which notifies users when background apps attempt to use the device’s camera, microphone, video recorder, or SMS, according to Samsung.
Additionally, Samsung Knox Configure was named a finalist in the Enterprise Management Category. This solution enables businesses to remote configure a large number of Samsung devices, and create profiles with device settings, restrictions, apps and other content.
In choosing this year’s winners, CRN reviewed 216 applicants across 32 categories ranging from business intelligence and analytics, to cloud services, to networking.
