Samsung is expanding Knox as a suite of purpose-built business tools that go beyond mobile
Seoul, South Korea – April 27, 2016 – Today, Samsung Knox, the award winning, defense-grade security platform, is expanding to offer a suite of purpose-built, innovative and intuitive business tools designed for the ways people want to work. The new Samsung Knox is taking the platform beyond mobile to serve as the foundation for all Samsung enterprise solutions and services.
An important step in the expansion of Samsung Knox is its security coverage for Samsung devices from flagship devices to many mid-tier devices including select smartphones and tablets. Additionally, Samsung Knox is available on wearable devices such as the Samsung Gear S2. This means many more Samsung device owners will be able to benefit with Samsung Knox’s defense-grade protection.
Samsung Knox is designed with multi-platform interoperability to work with existing IT assets. This commitment to interoperability will now be extended beyond the Android operating system to include Samsung’s Tizen operating system. Samsung Knox also works seamlessly between Internet of Things solutions with a collection of open APIs and SDKs. 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.
Since its launch in 2013, Samsung Knox has become a trusted and robust mobile security platform, protecting the device at every layer from hardware through software to application. With this next evolution, all Samsung enterprise solutions and services including healthcare, automotive, finance and other segments will be built on the Samsung Knox platform. “Samsung Knox allows us to offer our customers a better way to manage security and increase productivity,” said Robert Schukai, Head of Applied Innovation, Thomson Reuters. “By partnering with Samsung, we can take advantage of a networked world by empowering people to see connections, use insights and make decisions when it counts. Samsung Knox is pushing forward our connected future.”
