Samsung Introduces Samsung Knox
BlackBerry is fading out in the corporate segment and more and more companies increasingly start accepting a bring-your-own-device (BYOD) approach to work, security becomes of even greater importance on Android System.
To address that need and to get some cake from BlackBerry, Samsung has unveiled today a product called KNOX, a container that locks all your work applications in a secure environment to protect against data leakage and malware. The KNOX feature is supported on Galaxy smartphones and to access it you just tap on the icon to access your work apps, and once you are done with work, you can easily switch back to your personal application and phone environment.
“Easily accessible via an icon on the home screen, the Knox container offers a variety of enterprise applications in a secure environment, including email, browser, contacts, calendars, file sharing, collaboration, CRM and business intelligence applications,“
Knox basically allows Administrators to keep track of employees personal and work data separately, at the Android application layer. The system uses a more secure Android version developed by the National Security Agency (NSA) and works well with existing MDM, VPN and directory services.
The KNOX feature will first arrive on Galaxy smartphone in the United Kingdom (BTU Region) soon, but specific date or update version target is not set yet.
