Tango Networks works with Samsung to deliver mobile unified communications

Tango Networksâ„¢, a provider of full-featured enterprise mobile communication solutions, and Samsung Electronics America, Inc. are collaborating to deliver secure and compliant mobile Unified Communications (UC) solutions to enterprises, the companies said.

The collaboration focuses on delivering a solution that combines Samsung´s smartphones and Knox security and management capabilities with the Kinetic Communications mobile UC platform from Tango Networks. The Kinetic platform is being demonstrated by Tango Networks this week at the Samsung Developer Conference in San Francisco.

The combined solution turns Samsung mobile phones into feature-rich extensions of an enterprise´s communications system. It enables companies to extend business communications features — such as call recording, compliance policy enforcement and workforce optimization (WFO) capabilities — to their users´ Samsung mobile phones.

Operating in conjunction with mobile device management processes, the combined solution maximizes security and compliance to fully lock down mobile devices, including personal devices in Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) environments. The Knox solution helps ensure device and application integrity to protect corporate data while the Kinetic platform further enhances security and enforces compliance policies on phone calls and text communications.

Tango´s Kinetic platform provides deep integration with communications solutions from all major UC vendors and allows users on Samsung mobile phones to benefit from the same productivity-enhancing functionality as desk-phone extensions. The combined solution offers a simple and intuitive user experience for activating business communications features on Samsung phones.

Samsung Knox enables corporate data and personal data on Samsung phones to be separated and isolated from each other. Tango´s Kinetic platform complements the Knox solution with powerful identity management features that tie business calls and texts to the enterprise´s corporate number, while personal calls and texts are handled separately and remain private.

The Kinetic platform enables IT managers to enforce policies on mobile devices using their existing monitoring, recording, logging, archiving, WFO and quality assurance systems, ending the common “blind spot” that these systems have for mobile devices. Mobile call recording integration partners include ASC, Citycom Solutions, Cognia, Enghouse Networks, GWAVA (Micro Focus), Red Box Recorders and Verint.

Tango Networks empowers enterprises to extend their UC solutions to any mobile device for any user. Built with flexibility and connectivity, Tango´s award-winning Kinetic Communications Platform is the industry´s first Software-Defined solution to seamlessly integrate mobile devices with enterprise voice and UC applications. With Tango Networks, users have access to powerful business telephony features from the mobile´s native dialer, compliant corporate communication policies, and separate personal and business personas.
