Business Smartphones Connected to Public Wi-Fi Can Be in Danger

As many as 54 percent of American internet users log on through public Wi-Fi networks.

If your employees or you personally also use your company smartphone for private purposes, you certainly sometimes use public Wi-Fi networks to connect; mainly to use email and social media. While convenient, connecting to public portals can make mobile devices susceptible to security breaches, and expose personal and business information to risk.

Samsung is therefore offering a solution - security platform Knox - that is an upgrade to operating system. Samsung Knox's security is two-fold. The platform begins in the device chipset itself and extends through every single layer of a Samsung device, including the operating system and application layers. The platform ensures Samsung devices have overlapping defense and security mechanisms that protect against intrusion, malware, viruses and many more malicious threats. The benefit is that it not only protects smartphones but it is also part of all Samsung's business solutions and services.

Samsung Knox makes a modern mobile lifestyle possible by allowing the separation of professional information from personal on the same device through Secure Folder or Knox Workspace. Secure Folder uses Knox container technology to provide a secure space separate from other apps, messages and information creating an additional layer of security.

However, Knox offers several protection solutions for individuals as well as for large corporations with hundreds employees. The solutions include Knox Workspace, Knox Premium, Knox Configure, Knox Mobile Enrollment, Knox Customization SDK or Knox Enabled App. One just needs to choose the most suitable one. More information about Knox is available at www.samsung.sk.
