With cloud innovation getting to be mainstream as a business solution, progressively individuals are utilising their own gadgets to get to business-related information, cell phone makers have alleyed fears to cellphone clients against interruption, malware, and more malignant dangers.
According to research, more than 80% of employees use their own telephones or tablets for doing assignments for work.
Vice President of Integrated Mobility for Samsung South Africa Craige Fleischer said versatile security is further developed than at any other time and it can anchor both business and individual information.
“Knox is Samsung’s assurance of security, which gives clients the opportunity to work and play, how and when they need,” said Fleisher.
Before they can even unpack the gadget, cell phones, tablets, and wearables already have Samsung Knox at the assembling stage.
It has been estimated that by 2020, 23.28 million South Africans will use cell phones.
The Knox platform comprises overlapping defence and security mechanisms that protect against intrusion, malware, and more malicious threats.
But it’s not just about detecting threats – authentication systems verify not only the person perform the transaction but also the permission to perform it at that exact time and location.
This means that if a user is doing something sensitive in a location that’s not conducive to such activity, the device won’t allow it to happen.
That’s just on a personal level.
The Samsung Knox Platform for Enterprise gets even more intelligent, allowing IT managers to create bespoke solutions for their business needs of being managed and controlled.
Being able to separate business from personal activities doesn’t just protect businesses’ sensitive data, it also protects employees personal information,” concludes Fleischer.
IT can even deploy an on-device container to separate work and personal data.
As the world becomes mobile, security and privacy are of utmost importance.
“Being able to separate business from personal activities doesn’t just protect businesses’ sensitive data, it also protects employees personal information,” added Fleischer.
