Here are some quick facts to give you the basics of KNOX:
- Allows IT admins to keep employees’ personal and work data apart
- Knox incorporates Security Enhanced (SE) Android to create a container that separates business and personal use of a mobile device
- Encryption at the file system level, which ought to cut data leakage, viruses and malware attacks
- KNOX container presents a variety of enterprise applications in a secure environment including email, browser, contacts, calendars, file sharing, collaboration, CRM and business intelligence applications
KNOX will be especially beneficial for those who BYOD (bring their own device to work). Do you think KNOX 2.0 levels out the iPhone vs Android battle?!
