US Department of Defence approves Samsung KNOX software suite

Blackberry had a stronghold in the enterprise market due to its solid encryption and data security features. But since its fall, a lot of companies are trying to become the next Blackberry of the enterprise market. Samsung has just announced that US Department of Defense has approved five of its KNOX-equipped Galaxy devices into their product list of Defense Information System Agency (DISA). These devices include the Galaxy S4, Galaxy S4 Active, Galaxy Note 3, Galaxy Note Pro 12.2 and Galaxy Note 10.1 (2014 Edition).

Although this is a huge step for Samsung, it does not mean that the DoD (Department of Defence) will start using these Samsung devices right away. It only means that these devices can be used by their employees on unclassified networks and other such agencies. Samsung’s KNOX software suite provides security features that enable users to have business and personal content co-exist on the same device. Users can switch to either modes by clicking a single button without a need to reboot the device.

Samsung says that their devices had to qualify for over 100 requirements for getting DoD certification including better encryption and intrusion detection. Samsung is planning to offer a larger line-up of devices to such agencies while cutting down the costs. Last month, UK government gave a similar go ahead to Samsung KNOX devices.

Im a samsung fan from 2011 with the first phablet note 1 N7000, now i have the note 3.
But I must to tell why im not happy anymore with samsung.
The first reason is becouse im not feeling premium with samsung anymore.
The second reason is that samsung phones droped the price after only 3-4 months. Example you can find at the same price samsung note 3 with iphon 5.
The third reason samsung are boring with to much phones all with the same design. Example you spend 600 euro for s5 and looks similar like an s3 mini.
We need something new new new. Maybe something like lg g3.

S5 looks like S3 Mini? Have you seen them both together? They are way different.
And why you don’t feel premium? Now I own Black Galaxy S5 and I feel like I have a premium phone. I also see how people are looking on it. Looks great and have really nice and warm grip. Its way better than phones made of steel or smth like that. Metal gest hot really fast and cold as well.

Did you feel premium when an iphon 5 sh*t cost like samsung s5 and your phone drop the price after only 3 months? Did you feel premium when samsung droped to 2 Gb ram from 3 Gb? Did you feel premium when the only one who use plastic is samsung. Even lg g3 is far away better.
hey dude im i samsung fan too, but we need something new
