“Companies can now deploy Android devices for enterprise usage as Samsung KNOX is built to meet the rigorous demands of secure mobility needs.

Samsung KNOX provides reassurance and convenience for IT departments looking to implement and manage Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) strategies.

KNOX resolves two major enterprise mobility concerns for customers – security and manageability.

Multiple security and management enhancements have been incorporated into KNOX from hardware to the OS and application layer to provide a high level of security, while retaining full compatibility with the Android platform.

It incorporates Security Enhancement for Android, and integrity management services implemented in the hardware and the Android framework.

“Coupled with the container feature, KNOX offers an intuitive, dual-persona segregation between work and play to support BYOD needs. We are also supported by strong alliances with our partners, who have signed up to offer KNOX to enterprises. Together, we bring a differentiated mobility proposition and business advantage to enterprise customers,” Sim added.

At the application layer, KNOX offers a container solution that separates business and personal environments on a mobile device to seamlessly keep enterprise data secure while maintaining employee privacy.

This separation is enforced by Security Enhancement for Android and file system level encryption, offering protection of business data and applications from viruses, malware attacks as well as hacking attempts on physical devices when devices are stolen or lost.

Compatible with existing common enterprise infrastructure such as MDM, VPN and directory services, KNOX relieves application developers from the burden of developing individual enterprise features such as FIPS compliant VPN, on-device encryption, Enterprise Single Sign On (SSO), Active Directory support and Smart Card based multi-factor authentication.
