Samsung Knox-Comprehensive mobile solution for Work and Play announced
Samsung Knox incorporates Security Enhanced (SE) Android developed by NSA (National Security Agency) and integrity management services implemented in both hardware and the Android framework. Easily accessible via an icon on the home screen, the KNOX container presents to users a variety of enterprise applications in a secure environment including email, browser, contacts, calendars, file sharing, collaboration, CRM and business intelligence applications. Knox enables existing Android eco-system applications to automatically gain enterprise integration and validated, robust security with zero change to the application source code.
At the application layer, Knox offers a container solution that separates business and personal use of a mobile device. This separation is enforced by SE Android and file system level encryption, offering protection of business data and applications from data leakage, viruses and malware attacks. Lightweight and compatible with existing common enterprise infrastructure such as MDM, VPN and directory services, KNOX provides reassurance and convenience for IT departments looking to implement and manage Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) strategies.
