Samsung KNOX - The Most Secure Android Solution


Published on

Our approach to security and management addresses real-world challenges that enterprises are faced with when it comes to mobility solutions. Most enterprises are offering a BYOD or COPE program today. And Android devices are heavily in demand by business users – in fact IDC estimates that this year, Android will sell more phones in business segment than Apple will sell in total.

And yet, there is a clear division of what is important to business users and IT when it comes to mobility.

IT wants devices that:
Provide strong security and control
Integrate easily with existing infrastructure
Keep deployment, maintenance and upgrade costs low

Users, on the other hand, want devices that:
- Make me productive
- Protect my privacy
- Give me a wide choice of features

In many cases, these requirements are working against each other. That is what makes KNOX so valuable in enterprise scenarios. Using KNOX, you get the best of both worlds – the security and control IT is looking for and the sleek design, productivity, and cutting edge features that users want in Galaxy smartphones and tablets.
