Samsung upgrades Knox security suite to version 2.0

Samsung logoSamsung Electronics has announced the global availability of Knox 2.0, the company's end-to-end secure mobile platform, designed to provide data and privacy protection for enterprise users. The upgrade provides better support for IT departments as they implement and manage their Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) strategies with Samsung devices.

The original product, launched in 2013 as Samsung Knox -- the core security platform and app container -- has now been renamed Knox Workspace. Knox 2.0 includes Workspace, EMM, Marketplace and Customization. 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 Knox 2.0's version with the OS upgrade.

Knox Workspace offers a series of core security enhancements to better protect device integrity, from kernel to apps. These upgraded features include TrustZone-protected certificate management, Knox Key Store, real-time protection for system integrity, TrustZone-protected ODE, two-factor biometric authentication and the enhanced generic framework of Knox.

In addition to the core features of Knox 2.0 brought by Workspace, users will also have access to two new cloud-based services, Knox EMM and Knox Marketplace, and a customization service, Knox Customization.

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.
