Absolute Software Inks Deal with Samsung for Mobile Security on Knox, Galaxy S4

Vancouver's Absolute Software announced today it has entered into a strategic global partnership with Samsung Electronics.

The global giant will embed Absolute’s persistence security technology into the firmware of its Galaxy mobile devices–including the future Galaxy S4 smartphone–as part of Samsung KNOX, a mobile security platform being released later this year.

With the partnership, Samsung's mobile devices will then be the first worldwide to offer "constant, tamper-proof security connection for tracking, wiping, recovery and IT servicing".

"We are excited to partner with the global mobile industry leader, Samsung, to provide enterprise mobility management and theft protection solutions for their devices," said John Livingston, Chairman and CEO of Absolute Software. "With Samsung, the leading provider of smartphones and Android tablets, we are extending Absolute's patented persistence technology across the full spectrum of smart connected mobile devices."

Publicly traded Absolute Software is up 18% today and trading at $6.50 per share.
