Common Criteria ＞
Ensure authorized device access with two-factor biometric authentication
Samsung KNOX Workspace provides a double layer of protection for device access in the form of two-factor biometric authentication. With this method, the employee uses a fingerprint scan to access the container, and then selects a PIN, password, or pattern to complete the authentication. KNOX Workspace authentication ensures that only the authorized device user can access both the device and system.
Provide a safe channel to corporate assets from mobile devices
Samsung KNOX Workspace supports enterprise virtual private networks (VPNs) through the enhanced KNOX framework. The KNOX framework provides employees with an optimized, secure channel to company resources from personal or corporate-issued devices to improve productivity. Employees can be authenticated through KNOX Workspace’s full support for Microsoft Workplace Join. Workplace Join enables users to register devices with an enterprise to allow access to its data and systems, providing a second factor of device authentication through Active Directory.
