Samsung pivots Knox to serve as a foundation for its enterprise solutions and services
Samsung may have introduced Knox as a defense-grade security platform but today it has announced that it has pivoted Knox to offer purpose-built, innovative and intuitive business tools. The new Samsung Knox is going to serve as the foundation for all of Samsung’s enterprise solutions and services. Putting Knox at the foundation of all solutions and services will deliver the infrastructure that Samsung needs to advance its commitment to the enterprise, said DJ Koh, President of Mobile Communications Business at Samsung.
Knox will continue to provide security coverage for Samsung devices as it’s expanded from flagship handsets to many mid-tier models and even tablets. It’s even available on wearable devices like the Gear S2. The new Knox has been designed to work with multiple platforms so enterprises will be able to deploy it with their existing IT assets, it will work with Android as well as Samsung’s Tizen OS and Internet of Things solutions with a collection of open APIs and SDKs. Samsung says that with this evolution of Knox, all of its enterprise services and solutions including healthcare, finance, automotive and other segments will be built on the new Knox platform.
