In today's business environment, a business professional like you need a high-functioning mobile device to handle both business and personal demands.
In addition to superior performance, your smartphone must keep personal information private while simultaneously meeting your company's security
requirements. Samsung GALAXY S4 delivers advanced features to provide high security, convenient work-life integration and valuable productivity tools.
Embedded in Samsung GALAXY S4, Samsung KNOX delivers three-pronged hardware-level security technology
When you use your personal mobile device for work, security is critical. In Samsung GALAXY S4, Samsung KNOX provides container management and policies compliant with the U.S. Department of Defense (DOD) mobile OS security requirements guide (SRG). Offering SRG-compliant, robust security, Samsung KNOX protects your mobile device at the operating system level through a three-pronged approach:
Customizable Secure Boot (CSB)* is the first line of defense, ensuring that only verified operating systems and software load during the start-up process.
TrustZone-based Integrity Measurement Architecture (TIMA) protects, monitors and verifies the integrity states of the kernel with policy driven actions in response to kernel or boot loader violations.
Security Enhancements for Android (SE for Android) is an NSA-developed security technology integrated in Android to isolate applications and data in different domains based on confidentiality.
*CSB availability varies, based on hardware specifications.
In Samsung GALAXY S4, Samsung KNOX provides a security-rich solution for individual applications
In addition to securing the platform, Samsung KNOX provides solutions to protect individual applications.
Samsung KNOX Container is an isolated, secure environment within the mobile device. Applications and data inside the container are securely separated from personal components outside the container.
On-Device Encryption (ODE) encrypts the files system using an Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) cipher algorithm with a 256-bit key (AES-256).
Virtual Private Network (VPN) is a FIPS-certified, optimized network connection to the enterprise intranet. It also enables IT managers to configure provision and manage the use of VPN per application basis. IT staff can support strong IPSec VPN encryption and Suite B cryptography to comply with the strictest industry requirements.
Mobile Device Management (MDM) policies within Samsung KNOX provide advanced enterprise-ready security to Samsung Galaxy S4
Mobile Device Management (MDM) enables IT professionals to monitor, control and administer deployed mobile devices across multiple mobile service providers. Samsung Galaxy S4 works with enterprise-preferred MDM vendor solutions and provides industry-leading security and management controls.
Advanced MDM APIs allow the default SE for Android policies to be replaced with stricter or more detailed enterprise-specific policies. Samsung KNOX builds on Samsung's industry-leading SAFE® MDM capabilities by providing more than 474 additional IT policies and 1,034 MDM APIs. These IT policies support security, enterprise integration and enterprise applications, such as asset tracking, remote control and so on.
Samsung Galaxy S4 can be activated with the KNOX container, a dual persona for work and play
Samsung KNOX Container places your work applications and data in a separate area, so you can use one mobile device for both work and personal tasks. It's almost like having two phones in one. Separated personal and business modes are supported by the superior functioning of Samsung Galaxy S4.
You get a smooth experience no matter which applications you use. The container helps ensure security of business data without compromising the privacy of your personal information. A separate “business use only” area helps you manage enterprise applications and comply with company security policies.
