// This is Protection, Samsung Knox

Is your device protected?

Today’s borderless workers are always on and ready, no matter where they are. But with that mobility, are they ready for cyberattacks, data leaks, viruses, human error, and all sorts of new and emerging dangers? With Knox, they are.

At every layer, Knox ensures that confidential and sensitive data stays safe, no matter where their work takes them.
Their entire device is safeguarded from the inside out, and in real-time. This is protection they can be sure of.

Secured from the chip up.

In the past, anti-virus software may have been a “good enough” safeguard.

Not anymore. Now, threats have adapted.

They change form daily and can sneak past security apps undetected before hijacking the system from within.

That’s why Knox defense starts at the hardware level. It locks intrusions out, so control of your customer’s phone won’t be handed over to anyone else.

A safe within a safe for extra peace of mind.

Knox Vault* is an EAL5+ certified**, tamper-resistant environment that holds the data that matters most to your customers on their device. It physically isolates PINs, passwords, biometrics and security-critical keys away from the rest and stores them in the secure memory.

Even hackers armed with lasers and power glitch tactics cannot crack Knox Vault*. If its sensors detect physical intrusion, the device locks down***, leaving no way for your customer’s information to be stolen.

Complete ownership of the supply chain.

When it comes to risk assessments in the supply chain, there are no blind spots at Samsung.

In fact, Samsung are in the unique position to design and manufacture their devices, including the components that go inside.

Ownership of the entire production lifecycle translates to complete control over the process and no weak links.

*Knox vault is supported by select Samsung Galaxy smartphones and tablets such as Galaxy S22 and following S series and Fold series.
**Knox Vault on devices with Samsung Exynos processors is EAL5+ certified. Knox Vault on devices with Qualcomm processors is EAL4+ certified.
***In the case of a device hijacking, the self-destruct sequence is initiated without user consent or additional backup of the security data stored in Knox Vault.

Always on protection.

Do your customers remember the last time they turned their phone off… and then left it off?

It doesn’t happen often. Normally, a simple restart gives their phone the protection of an automatic secure boot. But like you, your customer’s device is always on. In the digital world, this means it’s open to a wide array of attacks 24/7.

That’s why Knox provides real-time protection even while their device is running.

RKP guards the integrity of powered-on devices.

The kernel is the brain of your customer’s device. Full access to the kernel means full access to their phone.

As the core of their operating system, a successful breach of the kernel could lead to catastrophe. We’re talking data leaks and even remote monitoring from the inside.

Samsung’s Real-time Kernel Protection (RKP) is designed to prevent changes that compromise the kernel. With RKP, the kernel code and its data structures are kept authentic, and their device stays safe.

DEFEX deters abnormal app behavior.

Between secure system boots, your customer’s apps need an extra layer of armor against unauthorised changes to app privileges.

Defeat Exploit, or DEFEX, prevents potential critical and illegal operations on their device by detecting and anticipating attacks.

Secured together.

As device use increases, so do the cyberthreats.

Scoped from all angles, your customer’s software, hardware, networks, and operating systems are all targets in the battle for their data.

In order to stay ahead of lurking danger, Samsung partner with the biggest names in tech, like Google and Cisco, to explore every scenario and correct potential vulnerabilities before they become a problem.

Secure at the core with Android.

By partnering with Google, Samsung Galaxy devices build upon Android’s hardened security platform and intelligent security services, like Google Play Protect.

This alliance paves the way for Samsung Knox to deliver additional government-grade hardware protections and critical controls that exceed the hardware and software expectations for business.

Safely connected with Cisco.

Public Wi-Fi delivers much-needed access for users but it also carries some inherent risks.

That’s why Samsung has joined forces with Cisco to provide seamless, secure Wi-Fi onboarding through OpenRoaming. When an OpenRoaming network is available, Samsung devices connect automatically without the need for added passwords or credentials.

Unique encryption secures the connection, preventing session hijacking or web snooping. With Samsungs open collaboration, public Wi-Fi is safe and reliable.

A vigilant community at your customers side

Tackling the waves of threats that emerge daily is a daunting task. And Samsung don’t expect your customers to do it alone.

Instead, they team up with experienced researchers and partners in the cyberthreat community. Together with SoC providers, they designed their hardware processing unit.

For the latest intel, Samsung engage with the Linux wider security research communities, academia, and mobile operators. And so worldwide, a strong network of observers is active and engaged in protecting Samsung devices from attack.

Mobile threats are not going away.

Is your customer’s work data, their employees, and their business fully protected?

Be sure they’re secure with round-the-clock, end-to-end mobile security.

Protect them with Knox.
