Samsung Announces Worldwide Commercial Availability of KNOX 2.0 on Galaxy S5
Posted on 7-May-2014 22:40. | Tags Filed under: News.



Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd, today announced the global availability of KNOX 2.0, the company’s end-to-end secure mobile platform designed to provide advanced data and privacy protection for enterprise users. It provides better support for IT departments looking for reassurance and convenience as they implement and manage their Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) strategies.

The Samsung KNOX platform is no longer one product but represents a portfolio of multiple products and services designed to better meet the rapidly evolving enterprise mobility needs of customers. As a result, the original product launched in 2013 as Samsung KNOX – the core security platform and app container –has now been renamed KNOX Workspace.

Announced at MWC 2014, KNOX 2.0 includes KNOX Workspace, EMM, Marketplace and Customisation. KNOX Workspace is currently available on the newly launched Samsung Galaxy S5, which can be activated by IT managers for later use. KNOX 2.0 will be available on other Samsung Galaxy devices through OS upgrades in the coming months. The MDM previously used with KNOX 1.0 is also fully compatible with KNOX 2.0. The workspace users of KNOX 1.0 will be automatically migrated to that of KNOX 2.0 with the OS upgrade.

“KNOX has been widely deployed by enterprises since it became first commercially available in the market in September 2013,” said JK Shin, President and CEO, Head of IT & Mobile Communications Division, Samsung Electronics. “As a result of this rapid adoption, we needed to evolve the Samsung KNOX platform to directly address the ever-changing needs of the enterprise as we demonstrate our commitment to protect and respond to future enterprise mobility and security challenges.”

KNOX 2.0 platform include an improved user experience, with KNOX Workspace providing new features for its container for a more flexible approach for enterprise deployment. The KNOX container provides users with enhanced features such as support for all Android apps from the Google Play Store, meaning there is no need to go through the app wrapping process for third-party apps.
