Why an Enterprise Edition?

Employees use their private devices and data for business use. Data bounces around between mobile devices, from the laptop to the smartphone and back. This makes security solutions which safeguard the protection of data more important than ever. Samsung KNOX is integrated into both the software and the hardware of the device, to protect against malware, data theft, espionage and cyber attacks. These new devices offer your business the latest in smartphone technology as well as the protection it needs. Looking for advice on this topic? Reach out to our B2B team.

Multi-layered security with Samsung KNOX

  1. Security improvements for Android
  2. Runtime protection and encryption
  3. TrustZone architecture
  4. Secure/Trusted Boot and Hardware Root Of Trust

Knox protects apps and data by defining exactly what each process is allowed to do and what data it can access. In this way, Knox can separate, encrypt and protect company data in a managed container.

With periodic kernel metering and real-time kernel protection, the operating system's core software is continuously checked. These checks ensure that requests to bypass device security are blocked and sensitive data is protected.

Knox uses a processor architecture called TrustZone, which isolates highly sensitive computations from the rest of the device's operation to protect company data.

To prevent security measures from being bypassed or compromised, Knox uses boot protection mechanisms supported by Hardware Root of Trust to verify the integrity of the device during the boot process.

Useful technology – not just for smartwatch wearers and architects

“ Thanks to MultiSIM, our customers can use their phone number on several devices. ”
Andreas Kundert (Head of Business Development)

Use one mobile phone number but several devices? That's possible with MultiSIM. MultiSIM allows you to use the same number on several mobile devices and therefore get work done on long train journeys, for example. If your smartphone or tablet runs out of battery, just continue working on another device. What about the Watch? It works with that, too. Leave your mobile phone at home and manage your messages via the Watch. Want to use a less expensive device for the construction site, workshop or on the road, or like having a backup device with you in case of emergency? No problem with MultiSIM.
