UK government gives the go-ahead for Samsung KNOX


knox-feature

Samsung’s plans to make KNOX the de facto security solution for governments and enterprises around the world have taken a giant leap forward today, as the UK government has officially declared that KNOX-enabled devices can be used by employees at work. The devices cleared by the UK government include the Galaxy Note 3, Galaxy S III, Galaxy S4 and the recently launched Galaxy S5 – more devices should be added to the list in the near future, once KNOX 2.0 rolls out to existing devices with features such as a new UI, better device integrity, support for apps installed from Google Play, and more (KNOX 2.0 also supports fingerprint authentication, but only on the Galaxy S5.)

Graham Long, Vice President of the Samsung UK & Ireland enterprise business team said:

“Mobile device data security is a major focus for Samsung, and our KNOX technology provides a comprehensive solution for businesses and the public sector. We are pleased that our KNOX enabled devices have been cleared for use by the UK Government, and are confident given the period of intensive testing that the robust capabilities of KNOX act as a credible security solution for government agencies.

Our technology is widely used in both the UK public and private sector, and with this approval we are committed to working more closely with government departments and agencies that need to maintain high levels of security and data confidentiality on their mobile devices.”

      KNOX allows companies to create a dedicated virtual container inside the OS, and no data can be accessed by apps not approved to run in that virtual container (consider the container a sort of dedicated playground), making it secure for the company apps to run. It’s what BlackBerry has always had, and now Samsung does, too.

    UK has the international version of s3 (i9300). And here is included the s3 of uk, being capable of knox and interface changes no??
    sooo.. i think they will push another update with 4.3 but this will include knox and the new interface with launcher, lockscreen effects and weather widget for the s3. I hope it will happen.
