LULEÅ, Sweden -- November 7, 2013

IFS(https://www.ifsworld.com/), the global enterprise applications company,
has recently released the smartphone app IFS Notify
Me™(https://mobility.ifsworld.com/en/mobility-technology/) on Samsung
KNOX(http://www.samsung.com/global/business/mobile/solution/security/samsung-knox),
the comprehensive platform for secure enterprise
mobility(https://mobility.ifsworld.com/en/). The release makes IFS among the
first business software vendors to actively leverage the platform for the
benefit of its customers.

Samsung KNOX is the comprehensive enterprise mobile solution that addresses
the mobile security needs of enterprise IT without invading the privacy of its
employees. The platform’s multi-layered security ensures secure deployment of
Android apps in line with the standards of the enterprise network.

IFS Notify Me is an enterprise smartphone app for approving and authorizing
purchase requisitions and orders, supplier invoices, and travel expenses.
Starting with Notify Me, IFS intends to make the entire
family(https://mobility.ifsworld.com/en/mobility-technology/) of IFS Touch
Apps available on Samsung KNOX.

“As one of the first business applications vendors, IFS will be able to offer
its customers the advanced security and management features of Samsung KNOX,
protecting enterprise data from leakage, malware, and malicious attacks,” Dr.
Injong Rhee, Senior Vice President of Technology Strategy, KNOX Business and
B2B R&D Group at Samsung Electronics said. “By creating a secure zone on the
device for corporate applications and data, the user’s personal data is kept
private.”

“Security is a theme that permeates all of our solutions, which is why we
decided to extend our IFS Touch Apps series to the Samsung KNOX platform,” IFS
CTO Dan Matthews said. “More and more companies are implementing BYOD
strategies, creating a need for a compartmentalized Android platform that
guarantees security in a seamless and intuitive manner.”
