Three Ireland launches Samsung device management solution

Three to become Ireland’s first Samsung Knox Mobile Enrolment partner in July 2017

26th June 2017: Three Ireland and Samsung have today announced the launch of a new service which simplifies the initial set up and deployment of devices for business customers.

Three will be the first operator in Ireland to offer the service, which will be available from 10th July.

Samsung’s Knox Mobile Enrolment (KME) easily and automatically activates large numbers of Samsung Android devices over Wi-Fi or 4G enabling the automation configuration of a Mobile Device Management (MDM) solution, saving time and money for IT departments and employees.

KME enables devices to be configured without touching them so that they can simply be delivered to end users. Centralised device management lets businesses enrol their devices in bulk, quickly and easily, with almost no user involvement, who automatically receive the settings and apps they need for work.

The service complements Three’s existing Enterprise Mobility Management portfolio which helps businesses protect their company devices from security attacks while giving employees secure access to applications and company files remotely as though they were in the office.

Eóin MacManus, Business Director at Three commented: “With six in ten* Irish business owners saying that their smartphone is the single most important technology that allows them to do their job, workforces are becoming more and more dependent on mobile solutions and service. This is making mobile device management essential for companies, and Samsung KME makes the set-up of MDM seamless. With the new EU General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR) now on the horizon for May 2018, businesses need to be more aware of security risks than ever and be able to ensure and demonstrate data protection compliance. We already have a number of business customers trialling the service. Samsung KME and Three provide mobile solutions which can help keep your data safe and secure”.

Adrian McInerney, General Manager at Samsung Ireland, added: “MDM is now a crucial service for businesses. With KME, Samsung is making this process as simple, effective and cost-efficient as possible and I’m delighted to offer this to Three’s business customers from July.”
