It takes hackers just 30 seconds to gain access to a mobile device. In doing so, they not only gain access to the personal details of the user but create a pathway to your most sensitive data. Samsung has designed an effective countermeasure against this danger, aptly named Knox. As smartphones and tablets become more convenient for business, Knox has become even more important as a business defence mechanism. The fact is, cyber-attacks are on the rise and employee business devices have exposed enterprises to data breaches, malware threats and corporate espionage.                               

Since its launch in 2013, Samsung Knox has become an award-winning, trusted and robust mobile security platform, protecting devices at every layer from hardware through software to application. This defence-grade security platform has created a suite of purpose-built, innovative and intuitive business tools designed for the ways people want to work. Knox is even taking the platform beyond mobile to serve as the foundation for all Samsung enterprise solutions and services. It’s designed with multi-platform interoperability to work with existing IT assets and seamlessly between the Internet of Things. In addition, Knox is supported by over 120 enterprise mobility management (EMM) providers worldwide and performs with all popular single sign-on (SSO) and virtual private network (VPN) solutions to preserve enterprise legacy IT investments.

A-grade defence 

A secure device is a reliable device. That’s why the Knox platform is built into Samsung smartphones, tablets, and wearables at the manufacturing stage. So, it’s there the moment the device is unpacked. The Knox platform consists of overlapping defence and security mechanisms that protect against intrusion, malware, ransomware and other malicious threats.

An organisation’s sensitive data is in a state of constant flow, as everyone from the CEO to the most junior employee accesses corporate emails, customer records, and financial information on a range of devices with different operating systems. With Knox you can manage a fleet of devices, with a cloud-based EMM solution, that increases business efficiency and secures corporate data. It can manage any Android, iOS or Windows 10 device, but is most secure on Samsung Galaxy devices integrated with the Knox platform. Moreover, real-time device monitoring allows IT administrators to track the current GPS-based location of all managed devices and message all device owners without needing their phone numbers.

If employees encounter problems while out of the office, they can authorize IT, administrators, to request direct access to their device for easy troubleshooting. This allows them to quickly help employees get back to work. And if a device is reported lost or stolen, IT can remotely locate it, lock it, reboot it, and wipe its content.

Keeping you connected and productive has always been a Samsung priority. Samsung Knox is the shield that ensures it.

In today’s climate, we often get caught up in the throes of technology and lose our creative side to mindless scrolling and screen time. But there are apps that not only help people to develop creative talents and personal expression but can also lead to increased online exposure.
