Keep your data Secure with Samsung KNOX on the Galaxy S9 and S9 Plus.

In an age where protecting your digital data is at the forefront of our minds and companies like BlackBerry are promising the most secure Android experience on their BlackBerry KEY2, Samsung are upping their game with some strong guarantees.

Samsung have preloaded their Samsung Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9 Plus with their high end security platform, KNOX. Let’s take a look at how these flagship devices are promising to protect your data on the go:


What is KNOX?

Samsung Knox Security

KNOX is Samsung’s defense-grade mobile security platform built into our devices. Simply turn on the device, and you’re protected.

By building a hardware-rooted trusted environment, KNOX provides a trusted environment, ensuring that enterprise-critical operations such as decryption of enterprise data, can only occur when core system components are proven to be uncompromised.

For many pieces of device software, such as the kernel and TrustZone apps, this is done by checking the cryptographic signature of each piece of software.

A trusted environment is hardware-rooted if both the cryptographic keys and code used to compute these signatures are tied back to unmodifiable values stored in hardware.

What are some key features of KNOX?

Key features of KNOX include Secure Boot, Trusted Boot, ARM® TrustZone®-based Integrity Measurement Architecture (TIMA), Security Enhancements for Android (SE for Android), and TrustZone-based Security Services.

The KNOX Workspace container is designed to separate, isolate, encrypt, and protect work data from attackers. This enterprise-ready solution also provides management tools and utilities to meet security needs of enterprises large and small.
