SEPARATE CORPORATE AND PERSONAL DATA


Dual Persona

Work more securely, live freely. Seamlessly switch between your personal space and Workspace with the tap of a button.

How it works

Launch Knox Workspace by tapping the Knox icon or in the Notifications Bar select “Knox: Tap to start.” Create a Knox password to better secure your workspace. Your IT Admin can also set password timeout policies to enable you to switch between your personal space and Knox without having to enter your password every time.

To exit Knox, navigate to your personal space by tapping the “Personal” icon in the Knox home screen. Depending on your password timeout (by default it is 10 minutes), you will be able to log back into Knox Workspace without re-entering your password. To logout and lock the container, swipe down from the top of your screen to reveal the Navigation Bar and tap “Knox: Tap to exit.”

Security

All Knox Workspace supported devices are better secured from the boot up with hardware, software and application level security. Your IT Admin can control your Knox workspace through a MDM console. IT can remotely apply security features like VPN, data encryption and password policies to keep your company data safer, while leaving your personal space untouched.

Personal Space

The personal space is your zone to customize as you please. Organize and store all of your personal photos, apps and data in the familiar Android platform.

How it works

Your personal space contains all of the usual functions of your Samsung device. Use great features like Air Gestures, Bluetooth and S Beam, to enhance your mobile phone experience. Download apps from Google Play or Samsung Apps, keeping them separate from your workspace.

To exit Knox, navigate to your personal space by tapping the “Personal” icon in the Knox home screen. Depending on your password timeout (by default it is 10 minutes), you will be able to log back into Knox Workspace without re-entering your password. To logout and lock the container, swipe down from the top of your screen to reveal the Navigation Bar and tap “Knox: Tap to exit.”

Security

Knox Workspace supported devices have built in hardware and software, like SE for Android that creates a more secure Android platform. This protects the integrity of your device during the start-up and run process. All Samsung devices can be outfitted with security features to keep personal data more safe. Look into VPN configuration and apps, device encryption, password protection, and credential storage information to protect your device from malicious apps, hacks and attacks.

Knox Container

The Knox container is the ideal place for work. Use more secure email to keep up with co-workers, S Planner to schedule meetings, and download productivity apps, all within in the Knox container.

How it works

Samsung Knox Workspace creates a virtual, separate space on your device, specifically for work data. Your organization’s IT department can remotely manage the container, push apps to the container and apply security policies. Knox Workspace is ready to use out of the box on premium Samsung Galaxy devices.

Security

Before Knox Workspace can be installed, the device must be secure and uncompromised. Hardware and OS-hardening like SE for Android, ARM TrustZone-based Integrity Management Architecture (TIMA) and Secure Boot, creates the first layer of security. Additional data security, like on-device encryption and per-app VPN, ensures that your data-in-transit and at rest is safer in Knox Workspace.
