Samsung Joins Forces With IBM to Help Centralize Mobile Security for Enterprises

May 8, 2024

Strategic partnership brings Samsung Knox device vulnerability information into IBM Security® QRadar® Suite via integration to enhance risk mitigation for mobile endpoints

SAN FRANCISCO, USA – May 6, 2024 - Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd. today announced the next step in the evolution of its plan to re-imagine mobile device security for business customers in collaboration with IBM. Samsung will offer this solution, to be available later this year, which integrates on-device intelligence from Samsung Knox mobile device security platform into IBM Security® QRadar® Suite, a threat detection and response solution. The new integration is designed to provide security analysts and practitioners with added visibility via a “single pane of glass” experience into their organizations’ mobile devices and accelerate their ability to respond to threats across the full incident lifecycle – transforming business operations while helping to ensure users’ privacy remains protected. Additionally, Samsung’s unique approach helps preserve privacy while providing the necessary visibility to the Security Operations Center (SOC) for enhanced threat intelligence and management.

Increasingly organizations’ IT and security teams are seeking to adopt a Zero Trust framework. Samsung Knox provides SOCs with differentiated capabilities to ensure centralized visibility into mobile devices and their vulnerabilities and access to on-device threat detection to alert security analysts early in the attack chain. Samsung Knox can also enable automated response and remediation actions such as patching on Knox devices by integrating with SOC tools and workflows. 

Security Operations Center (SOC) environments that leverage IBM QRadar Suite will have access to on-device threat intelligence from Samsung Galaxy mobile devices and centralized visibility into vulnerabilities. Siloed data from devices has made threat detection and response challenging for SOC teams. This partnership plans to enable the industry-leading integration of a mobile device provider into the SOC, enhancing organizations’ capabilities to provide proactive risk mitigation through a more cohesive security approach.

“Samsung Knox has been consistently recognized as the industry’s leading mobile device security platform* due to our comprehensive approach to protecting devices at the hardware and software levels. Working with IBM, we are excited to extend the power of the platform to SOCs to address the increasingly complex threats organizations are facing today,” said Brad Haczynski, Senior Vice President and General Manager of Mobile B2B, Samsung Electronics America.

“More than ever before, disconnected security tooling is one of the biggest challenges facing security professionals. We designed the IBM QRadar Suite to unify and accelerate the security analyst experience across the full threat detection, investigation and response lifecycle. Our collaboration with Samsung to integrate Knox capability will help deliver powerful visibility into Galaxy mobile endpoints for security professionals,” stated Denny O’Brien, Director, Product Management, Cloud and Service Provider Security, IBM.

The integrated solution will initially be available for enterprises using IBM QRadar Suite with Knox Suite (Secured by Knox) for their Samsung Galaxy mobile devices later this year.
