Secured by Knox
At Samsung, we’ve spent years perfecting our Knox security platform to provide privacy you can trust in an uncertain world filled with looming threats and security breaches. Our mobile devices are designed with defense-grade security from the chip-up, so your device is secured by Knox from the moment you first turn it on.
Mobile devices have become our multi-purpose tools – our wallet, our phonebooks, our photo albums, our portable computers. For an extra layer of privacy, Secure Folder creates a separate encrypted space to store your data, meaning only you have access to the most private parts of your phone.
When paying with Samsung Pay on your mobile device, your card information is encrypted in a completely separate and secure data vault. Whether you’re making investments, transferring funds, or shopping for yourself, your transactions are secure and don’t leave behind a paper trail of receipts. Plus, as long as you have your phone, you'll always have your credit card on hand.
Your smartphone is an essential part of your life, but you're only human. In case of loss or theft, the Find My Mobile service allows you to remotely locate your smartphone, backup data stored on the device to Samsung Cloud, lock the screen, and even block access to Samsung Pay. And if you need to, you can also delete all data stored on your device.
Offering multi-layered security, Knox integrates hardware and software that works together to give you a high level of data protection, defending your most sensitive information from malware and malicious threats. Explore the four major components of our Knox security platform below.
The Knox security platform is trusted by government organizations which demand high levels of security. Knox leads the mobile security industry with global government security certifications.
The Knox platform received "strong" ratings in 27 of 30 categories in Gartner's May 2019 report, "Mobile OSs and Device Security: A Comparison of Platforms"
Samsung continually works with international regulatory bodies to meet a wide range of certification requirements designed to protect national interests, public safety, and consumer privacy.
"Knox" is built into both the hardware and software of Samsung's latest devices. It constantly verifies the integrity of the device through a chain of security checks that begin at the platform level and extend to the operating system and detects any tampering to ensure that your data is always secure"
"Knox is the only security solution from a smartphone manufacturer that tries to protect a device from the ground up i.e from the hardware root level to the top application layer."
"Knox is able to protect its device from a kernel level so that root access is denied to an attacker during a startup process. Sensitive data is kept encrypted even after the device is powered on. Samsung also claims to be the only company in the world to offer kernel protection during runtime and not just while powering the device."
Many Samsung phones, tablets, and wearables are made with the Samsung Knox platform built right into their architecture, safeguarding both Samsung consumer and business devices. Our multi-layered security solution runs on both Android and Tizen operating systems, so each device is actively protected from the moment you turn it on.
