Anchored in Samsung smartphone, tablet and wearable hardware, the Samsung Knox enterprise mobile security solution is also integrated throughout the software layers to separate data and constantly check the integrity of the device. These defense layers detect any tampering and ensure data is secure. Explore the layers below or download the whitepaper.

The Knox mobile security solution protects applications and data by strictly defining what each process is allowed to do and what data it can access. This allows Knox to separate, encrypt, and protect enterprise data within a managed container.

Periodic Kernel Measurement & Real-time Kernel Protection work to constantly inspect the core software of the OS, the kernel. These checks ensure that requests to bypass device security are blocked and sensitive data is protected.

The Knox enterprise security solution leverages a processor architecture known as TrustZone, in which highly sensitive computations are isolated from the rest of the device’s operations, protecting enterprise data.

To prevent security measures from being bypassed or compromised, Knox uses Boot-time Protections backed by Hardware Root of Trust to verify integrity of the device during the boot process.

The Samsung Knox platform is built into Samsung smartphones, tablets, and wearables at the manufacturing stage, so you have it the moment you unpack your device. The Knox platform consists of overlapping defense and security mechanisms that protect against intrusion, malware, and more malicious threats.

To further protect these devices for high security use cases, Samsung developed resilient and user-friendly Knox solutions.
