Our mobile devices keep us connected to the things that matter most. They store important information needed to manage our lives, conduct business and stay in touch with our friends and loved ones. With so much data available and the ability for our devices to serve as access points to multiple networks, services and even other devices, it’s vital to have security that fits to our mobile lifestyle and not security that dictates it. Therefore, ensuring that all facets of our mobile experience remain secure is an immutable priority for not only businesses, but for everyday mobile users as well. That’s why Samsung integrated its Knox security platform at multiple levels, from hardware and software to our favorite applications, to ensure our mobile lives are protected from threats.
Understanding the importance mobile phones and devices hold work, home and on-the-go, Samsung Knox is the security platform for how people really live. From the very moment the device is turned on, Knox continually serves to protect its integrity as well as the personal and professional information stored on it. Inherent to the device itself; Knox protects us day and night.
Comprised of the Samsung Knox platform, products and solutions, Knox’s built-in security is two-fold. The platform begins in the device chipset itself and extends through every single layer of a Samsung device, including the operating system and application layers. The platform ensures Samsung devices have overlapping defense and security mechanisms that protect against intrusion, malware, viruses and many more malicious threats.
Complete Protection in any Environment
Today’s mobile lifestyle allows us to function in ways that best suits our needs. Modern mobile professionals crave a device that operates across their professional and personal lives and they demand high-level security that protects them no matter what. With work and play blending together more often, important apps, information and messages for both personal and corporate life are mixed together on a single phone. This increases the opportunity for unwanted outsiders to access sensitive data such as email, contacts, photos, account information and more.
Samsung Knox makes a modern mobile lifestyle possible by allowing the separation of professional information from personal on the same device through Secure Folder. Secure Folder uses Knox container technology to provide a secure space separate from other apps, messages and information creating an additional layer of security.
Potential Mobile Threats are Constantly Looming
Life moves fast. Every minute of every day, potential threats loom, and for many users, mobile security might not always be top of mind, leaving data and personal information open and susceptible to risk.
The adoption of mobile lifestyles has increased the use of public Wi-Fi. A 2016 study from the Pew Research Center found that 54 percent of American internet users log on through public Wi-Fi networks, primarily to use email and social media. A common misconception facing mobile users is the assumption that public Wi-Fi is safe, especially at trusted establishments like popular coffee shops, hotels and airports. While convenient, connecting to public portals can make mobile devices susceptible to security breaches, and expose personal and business information to risk.
Samsung Knox’s security platform builds a digital fortress around your mobile device, shielding sensitive information from unwarranted visitors and malware attacks so that you can get your much-needed coffee and headlines uninterrupted.
Samsung Knox Protects Your Personal Digital Payments
Digital payments have become standard in today’s mobile world. Without the right security, making transactions on-the-go can put your most sensitive financial information at risk. When using mobile payment services such as Samsung Pay, Samsung Knox brings additional defenses against would be attackers directly to your phone. Through constant monitoring, Knox ensures your card information is encrypted in a separate and secure data vault at all times.
The easiest way for unauthorized access to data is through passwords, meaning simple internet browsing can put your data at risk with poor password practices. The same study from Pew Research Center found that most Americans use and re-use simple passwords that are easy to memorize but are therefore easier to hack. Password management programs like Samsung Pass provide a simple and secure ‘identity management as-a-service’, which enables secure internet access through biometric authentication. Samsung Knox is there to ensure that your biometric data is encrypted and kept intact, allowing users to use their biometric information to browse the web with confidence. *
Samsung Knox at Work
Samsung Knox works just as well for business use. From banking, sales, education and healthcare, to taxi services, advanced computing, airline and automotive industries – all types of businesses are taking advantage of Samsung Knox to deliver better solutions and customer service while keeping the integrity of their – and their customers’ – data intact.
As businesses continue to adopt mobile technology to simplify operations and increase efficiency, security has become more important than ever. The Samsung Knox platform provides multi-layered protection that isolates and encrypts corporate data through on-device encryption, and constantly monitors device integrity.
Samsung Knox goes beyond protecting critical corporate information. With Knox Configure, organizations can completely customize and tailor a mobile experience that suits the environment for which devices are destined. It provides IT managers with configuration, application deployment and UI/UX customization capabilities as well as remote bulk device enrollment and provisioning services, putting them in complete control of their mobile solution from start to finish.
Samsung Knox was Designed for Life
Today’s world moves at a fast pace and requires us to keep up. Sometimes we get caught in the moment and security becomes an afterthought – that’s why we created Samsung Knox. For those inevitable moments of vulnerability and insecurity that life brings our way, Knox is working so you can focus on the issues that matter most.
