Samsung is taking the mobile security market by storm with its hardware-based secure Android platform – KNOX. Tap into the growing list of over 4 million users who have activated KNOX and contributed to the revolution. How?

Join the Samsung Enterprise Alliance Program (SEAP), a free program aimed at mobile developers. Use SDKs & tools to develop for the latest cutting-edge technologies (Android, IoT, Tizen, Cordova, and more) and leverage the security of KNOX. SEAP supports the developer’s quest to build and distribute better, secure mobile apps and enterprise solutions. Whether it’s for retail, hospitality, education, or any other industry vertical – SEAP assists you at every phase of your product life-cycle. Maximize your market reach and grow your business in partnership with Samsung.

According to the Vision Mobile Developer Economics 2015 study, 43% of enterprise app developers make more than $10K per month versus 19% of consumer app developers reaching the same revenue level.


  • With the influx of security vulnerabilities in mobile platforms, the market is in dire need of certified hardware-based security platforms.
  • The development of secure mobile solutions has not kept up with the explosive growth of the mobile market and growing malware threats.
  • Increased flexibility for device management is needed due to the growing adoption of BYOD (bring your own device) and COPE (corporate owned personally enabled) devices.
  • Developers are looking for easy-to-use and robust SDKs to secure apps and data.

What does SEAP offer?

  • An official Samsung program for developers and partners.

  • Free access to the latest Samsung mobile SDKs, tools and services.
  • Access marketing resources to promote your brand with Samsung.

  • The Independent Software Vendor (ISV), Value Added Resellers (VAR), Systems Integrator (SI), with an app or solution that is ready to go to market.
  • The eager, tech-savvy student looking to jump-start their career.
  • The innovator looking to build the next killer app for enterprise.
