In order to make its clients feel even safer, Samsung will offer Lookout antivirus solution preloaded on Knox-enabled devices.
Unveiled at this year’s Mobile World Congress, Samsung KNOX is an end-to-end solution that provides security hardening from the hardware through to the application layer. Lookout for KNOX will include real-time, cloud-based scanning to protect against mobile threats from email attachments, web browsing, and any type of file sharing services.
However, even with this new security boost, the KNOX platform retains full compatibility with Android and the Google ecosystem while “engineering fundamental security and management enhancements,” including its unique application container technology that enables enterprises to support both BYOD and Corporate-Liable models, without compromising corporate security or employee privacy.
Knox is one of few platforms approved for use by Department of Defense.
