In addition to securing the platform, Samsung KNOX addresses enterprise application and data security requirements. Samsung KNOX container provides security for enterprise data by isolating enterprise applications and encrypting enterprise data both at-rest and in motion.
Samsung KNOX Container
Samsung KNOX Container is an isolated and secure environment within the mobile device, completed with its own home screen, launcher, applications, and widgets. Applications and data inside the container are separated from applications outside the container. This provides a powerful solution for the “data leakage problem” associated with the BYOD model.
Encrypted File System
Samsung KNOX container uses a separate encrypted file system completely isolated from applications outside the container. The data is encrypted using an Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) cipher algorithm with a 256-bit key (AES-256).
Virtual Private Network
Samsung KNOX container offers an on-demand FIPS-certified VPN client called per-app VPN. Per-app VPN provides enterprise IT administrators with the ability to configure, provision, and manage the use of VPN on a per-application basis. Samsung KNOX container VPN offers support for strong IPSec VPN encryption for most sensitive government agencies, including support for Suite B cryptography.
